At Heritage Roofing, we’re committed to helping the good people of Prescott AZ get the very best value from their roofing solutions all year, every year. We believe that a roofing contractor’s job isn’t over when they put down their tools but to continually take the time to provide lasting aftercare and back up our work with a 10 year labor guarantee. That’s why we find it so heartbreaking when we inspect a roof and find that it’s been subjected to years of hail damage that results in large and potentially avoidable repairs.
With summer just around the corner, we all know that as summer melts into fall your home will be all that protects you from the infamous Arizona monsoons. With the fluctuation in weather comes the possibility of hail damage. Left unchecked, this can result in widespread costly and disruptive repairs.
Here are some of the most important reasons why it’s important to get your roof inspected to check for hail damage…
1. Hail damage can cut the lifespan of your roof in half
Even the mightiest suit of armor is only as strong as its weakest link. Consider the roofing of your Prescott home a suit of armor that protects your home from the ravages of the elements. Hail damage can create more and more barely perceptible weak links that can, over time, conspire to reduce the lifespan of your roof by up to 50%.
2. Hail damage can result in granule loss and leave your roof vulnerable to leaks
You may notice tiny mineral granules on the surface of your roofing shingles. After a fierce hail storms these granules can become dislodged. While this may not seem like a big deal, over time this can compromise the integrity of your roofing and make your home vulnerable to roof leaks… And the worst part is, if you don’t have your roof inspected regularly, you may not even realize that you’ve had a problem until its too
3. Inspections can help you to file an insurance claim before it’s too late
Your insurance policy may cover hail damage to your roof. But the earlier you catch the damage, the more likely your insurance company is likely to pony up the cost of repairs. If they deem the damage to have been preventable they may not agree to remunerate you for your repairs.
4. An inspection can mean the difference between a small, affordable repair and a big repair
Needless to say, we always endeavor to provide the best prices and value for money to our customers. Nonetheless, it still behoves canny homeowners to inspect their roof regularly especially around monsoon season. An inspection can uncover a small and manageable issue with your roofing shingles or underlayment that could be exacerbated by hail damage. This can help to drive down your maintenance costs and avoid the risk of a big repair.
So, for peace of mind all year round, get in touch with us today to arrange a roof inspection. It could be the most important call you make all year!
