Hail Damage Roof Repair for Commercial Buildings

Your roof is your business’s first line of defense against the elements. Unfortunately, severe weather (such as hailstorms) can come quickly and unpredictably, leaving damage behind in its wake.

The size of the hailstones, the intensity of the storm, and the concentration of stones may lead to broken windows, damage to the building’s exterior, and most importantly, the degradation of your roof. In fact, even ¾” – 1″ hailstones are considered large enough to inflict damage in commercial roofing systems, depending on the overall age, material, and condition of the roof. This means that even a relatively minor hailstorm can compromise the integrity of your commercial roofing system, leading to more serious, long-term issues.

Therefore, no matter the magnitude, it is imperative to have your roof inspected by a professional for possible issues after any hailstorm. If left untreated, it can create pits and holes that may make your roof more susceptible to the elements and further deterioration. While insurance will often cover hail damage, waiting or ignoring even minor harm may affect your claim, as your insurance may dispute that your roof damage was pre-existing. At Solid Rock, we even have an experienced insurance adjustor on board to assist you through the process and ensure your matter gets taken care of properly and cost-effectively.

Signs of Hail Damage to Your Roof

While some forms of hail damage are very apparent, others may take a closer inspection to uncover.

Immediate signs of hail damage may include:

  • New dents and/or divots in the roof
  • Scuffing on the surface of the roof
  • Tears, cracks, fractures, or punctures in the roof membrane (the material that protects your roof from the elements)
  • Indentations or damage within the underlying insulation of the roof

If hail damage has been left untreated and escalates into larger-scale problems, it may lead to a closure of your business as you seek repairs and ensure the safety of your building.

By letting the professionals at Solid Rock conduct a quick, but thorough inspection of your roof can save you the headache of lengthy repairs or even from full roof replacement. Not to mention, think of the revenue lost while having to shut down your business when this matter could have been promptly resolved.

Long-term hail damage may lead to:

  • A weakening of the adhesive bond between the roofing membrane and insulation
  • A detachment of the roofing membrane
  • Roof leaks, often manifesting in wall or ceiling discoloration
  • Roof failure and replacement
