Q & A About Storm Damage from Sherriff-Goslin Roofing in Kalamazoo
Question: With all of the storms and severe weather we experience in Kalamazoo—including high winds, heavy rains, and hail—how can I be sure my roof hasn’t suffered any damage?
Answer: Each year, the Midwest seems to get more than its fair share of severe weather throughout the four seasons. It’s true that high winds, hail and heavy rains may do considerable damage to your home’s roofing so, Sherriff-Goslin Roofing in Kalamazoo suggests you have a spring roof inspection by a trusted, dependable roofing expert.
A Sherriff-Goslin roofing expert will inspect your roof for loose, missing or curled shingles, and hail damage. Hail leaves small indentations in shingles by damaging the protective coating of granules on the shingles. We’ve even seen instances where hail has compromised the integrity of the shingles by causing small holes about the size of a dime or quarter in the shingles.
Heavy rains, the kind we have here in Kalamazoo, may do damage as well. Heavy rains can wash the protective granules off older shingles—something that occurs naturally, at a much slower rate, as shingles age. We often find evidence of this by looking for an excessive amount of granules in your roof gutters.
