Significant hail damage occurred in De Soto, KS in May 2016, damaging roofs in the area between K-10 and the Kansas River, in the neighborhoods near Lexington Avenue and Commerce Drive. In the picture above and the two at the bottom, you can clearly see the significant hail strike damage that will eventually cause major problems if the roof is not replaced. These are pictures taken of a home in De Soto this week. Please note that it can be hard to see this type of damage from the ground, so please be safe and call the Roofing Man to take a closer look at your roof.
Why is hail damage such a problem?
Many people assume that the damage caused by hail is merely cosmetic, and isn’t cause for concern. This is not true. When hail hits your roof, the protective granules are knocked off where the hail strikes. Over time, the damage will accelerate and eventually cause problems.
If you suspect hail damage but can’t see it, or assume that it is just minor, definitely call The Roofing Man for a free inspection of your roof. It is important to identify damage before it becomes a problem and to file a claim with your insurance company to make sure that you are properly covered. While your roof will not leak immediately after hail damage, over a few years the damage will get bad enough that leaking can occur.
