Extreme hail storms are on the increase. Are they damaging your roof?

While it’s always difficult to make predictions, recent weather patterns suggest that extreme weather patterns are on the increase in the Baltimore area and Maryland.

In 2013 Maryland was hit by a massive storm that caused flooding, damaging 60 mph winds and golf ball sized hail. Similar storms struck Maryland in 2015 and 2016.

Chances are you roof sustained damage and you don’t even know it.

Imagine the damage. A golf ball sized hailstone reaches speeds of up to 100 mph.  That’s faster than a Zach Britton pitch.

Then there’s the hailstorms that never makes the news. We know all about those. We’ve repaired or replaced over 200 hail damaged roofs and siding systems in the Baltimore area and Maryland alone.

You’d be surprised by the speeds smaller hailstones reach. And by the damage they cause. Here’s the tricky part of evaluating hail damage. The constant battery might not break a shingle, but it can bruise it. And that erodes the structural integrity of the shingle. The result?

The granules covering the shingle are knocked loose and the fiberglass mat cracks.

Over time, the asphalt erodes and your roof starts to leak.

So, if your roof has endured a hailstorm in the last 5 years, there’s a chance that the gradual erosion process is happening right now, right above your head.

You could climb up on your roof and check, but hail damage can be imperceptible to the untrained eye.But it’s not something that will escape the attention of our HAAG certified roof inspector. Spare yourself the climb and give us a call.

We’ll give you a roof inspection absolutely free.

There’s no obligation.

Chances are your roof is fine, but that free inspection now could spare you the expense of a new roof later. Not to mention the damage it can cause to your home.

  • Due to the recent Hail Storm in the Cockeysville, Maryland area, my roof had missing shingles and the siding on my house had so many dents and holes in it and it looked awful. We were so upset with all the damage as we had never experienced anything like this in all the years we have lived in the area. While we were worried and not sure where to turn and had contractors banging on our door and calling, we became stressed out. We did receive a nice looking mailer from Crown Remodeling and had noticed many of their signs on nearby homes in the area, so we decided to give them a call. Once we called and spoke to “Jeff” the owner, we knew we were going to use them. Jeff was so pleasant and comforting and he took the time to explain how the entire insurance process worked that he helped us to relax. Now that all the work has been completed all we can say is “WOW” what an amazing experience it was to use Crown! They are so professional, so responsive and most of all friendly and honest! Our salesman, RJ went above and beyond on making sure everything was done on time and to perfection! We are so happy with the finished product and we highly recommend using Crown Remodeling!
