Storm Damage Roofing

Hail Damage Roof Repair Wind Damage Roof Repair


Storms cause more than $1.5 billion in damage to residential roofs in the United States annually. Severe hail and wind damage is easy to detect, but the most common damage is caused by moderate hail and wind storms. Asphalt shingle roofs that sustain moderate damage are difficult to detect damage on and often perform well in the months and sometimes years following a storm. The fact is the loss of the protective granules combined with the rupturing of the reinforcing membrane will cause the shingle to prematurely fail and the serviceable life to be affected as well.

It is important to have your roof inspected by a licensed professional roofing contractor that has experience in detecting damage. Most insurance companies will cover the repair or full replacement of your damaged roof and will classify these damages as “no-fault claims”. Hicks Roofing personnel have decades of roofing experience and have worked with property owners installing millions of square feet of high quality roofing systems. We have the expertise to detect damage and to work with you and your insurance company to make sure you receive the maximum benefits available.
