HAIL DAMAGE LEADS TO WATER DAMAGE & MOLD REMEDIATION

When you have hail damage in Kansas City following a spring storm, you should arrange for a thorough inspection as soon as possible. It isn’t something you should put off or ignore. Neglecting a damaged roof can lead to leaks, which can cause water damage, resulting in mold remediation. In order to extend the life of your roof and to protect the integrity of your home, repairs for hail damage must be made as quickly as possible.

In addition to roof damage, other outside features of your home, such as the eve troughs and gutters, can be damaged and need replacement or repairs. Your gutter system is designed to remove water from the roof in order to prevent pooling and moisture buildup and discourage mold growth. Also, damaged gutters can shorten the life of the roof.

The shingles need to be inspected for hail damage immediately following severe storms. They can be displaced and damaged, creating a perfect environment for leaking and water damage. To check for hail damage, you should do a visual survey for missing shingles, warping, discoloration or grain loss. If the shingles are broken or looking smooth and grainless, they will need to be replaced. In addition, inspect the soffits, fascias and vents, making sure no nails are loose and sticking out. If there is more serious damage, you may have to replace the entire roof or a large part of it.

It should be inspected for hail damage, especially around the chimney and vents. The caulking also needs to be checked, making sure it is not chipped with pieces missing; it will need to be resealed if has been damaged. High winds and hail damage to the flashing can cause it to loosen, resulting in further damage inside the house. If not attended to right away, mold remediation will inevitably be required. Immediately following the storm, check your roof yourself or have professionals give it a thorough inspection.

The costs of repairs and restoration to your roof following hail damage from storms is minimal when compared to the expense of replacing the entire roof. An immediate inspection after hail damage in Kansas City can save you a lot of money in the long run.
