WE PROVIDE EXPERT ROOF REPAIRS FOR STORM DAMAGE
Imagine Tiger Woods driving a thousand golf balls at your roof and you’ll have a good idea of how a severe hail storm can harm roof shingles and other roof elements, such as skylights and vent hoods.
Following any severe storm, your first roofing concern is whether or not the storm caused any leakage that might damage your home’s interior. Even if your roof does survive a hail storm without leaking, there may still be significant hail damage. That’s why it’s important to call in an experienced roofing expert like Sorensen Roofing & Exteriors, G.C. to check your roof for hail damage.
We will thoroughly inspect your entire roof and look for any signs of roof hail damage on your Colorado home. Our expert roofers have the experience to be able to suggest the appropriate roofing services, whether it’s roof repair or roofing replacement. After a storm, we’re the experts to call!

HAIL DAMAGES DIFFERENT ROOFING MATERIALS IN DIFFERENT WAYS
Experience in roof inspections following hail storms has educated roofing contractors about how hail damage affects different roofing materials. Not surprisingly, hail damages different roofing materials in different ways.
Roof hail damage can also vary greatly from one part of a house’s roof to another. This variation is due primarily to the wind that drives the hail. A glancing blow will do less damage than hail that impacts the roof at close to 90 degrees.
Hail damage to asphalt shingles:
Shingles can have broken or cracked tabs, but the most common hail damage takes the form of crushed or dented areas where granules are forced into the shingle mat material or displaced entirely. Since granules protect the shingle from UV degradation, hail dents can result in shortened shingle life.
Hail damage to wood shingles:
Wood shingles can crack from hail impacts. Cracking will be along the grain, and can cause parts of shingles to break loose.
Hail damage to slate roofs:
Hail impact can crack slates, although cracks tend to be more random than with wood shingles. Some slates may break loose from their fasteners and slide off the roof.
Insurance And Hail Damage Roofing Claims
The high winds that often accompany hail storms can cause blow-off damage that should be repaired right away. Hail-damaged roof shingles may not cause a problem for months or years, but it’s wise to call Sorensen Roofing & Exteriors as soon as possible to see if the damage merits roof repair or roof replacement with the help of your homeowner’s insurance.
One of the ways Sorensen goes the extra mile for our customers is by helping them deal with their insurance companies after they’ve experienced roofing damage after a hail storm. We understand that homeowner’s policies aren’t cheap, and we want to make sure you get the most out of your insurance coverages.
When handling insurance claims for your roof, your insurance company will likely look at the damages in two different ways: cosmetic (merely having to do with appearance) and functional (damage which actually affects the integrity of your roof).
One of the tactics that insurance companies will utilize is trying to make that argument that functional damage is merely cosmetic damage. This allows them to avoid having to pay up. One of the ways to combat this tactic is to schedule a professional roof inspection.
At Sorensen, our roof inspections are designed to go deep and find any hidden damage that insurance companies conveniently miss in order to give you a stronger case to get the full amount of your claim.
