Residential Storm Damage Restoration

Since your area was affected by a hail storm that lasted several minutes and produced substantial sized, wind-driven hail, it is important to have your roof inspected. Many property owners do not realize the level of damages their property has sustained based off their visual assessment from the ground. Because hail significantly reduces the lifespan of your shingles, we suggest that a proper hail inspection should be conducted by a professional at roof level so that we can determine the extent of the damage.


Protecting What Matters Most

Your roof is your first line of defense against anything mother nature throws your way. Understanding its health is vital towards avoiding any long term issues for everything it is protecting below.

According to the US Department of Commerce, in 2016 there was an estimated $3.5 billion in property damage from the 5,600 hail storms reported throughout the U.S.


Hail Damage to Shingles

Fiberglass Backing:
When hail impacts an asphalt shingle, it tends to break the “Spine” (fiberglass backing) of the shingle, which makes the shingle lose its ability to hold its granules.

Granule Loss:
As it rains, the granules will continue to wash away, exposing the asphalt underneath and leaving it vulnerable to UV Rays. The sun’s rays will eat away at the asphalt, making the existing holes larger over time and reducing its resistance to water.

About Organic Shingles

First and foremost, the condition of your roof is no way your fault. The creators of the organic shingle attempted to make an eco-friendly shingle that would decompose in landfills well after the lifespan of their warranty. What they did not factor in is how much the weather would accelerate that process. The organic shingles began to decompose while they were still on homes instead of the landfills. The decomposition of the shingles caused major problems for the functionality of the roof as well as the aesthetics. These shingles are now discontinued.

​​All Exterior Contractors specializes in insurance claims related to Organic shingles. If there is physical damage caused by a storm, and because the organic shingle is discontinued, your insurance company must fully replace your roof. We will represent you to your insurance carrier to advocate for a full replacement, bringing your dwelling up to code, while beautifying your property in the process. Remember you are under no obligation unless your claim is approved.
