Roof Storm Damage Experts
Your roof is designed to weather the elements, but violent storms can wreak havoc on even the newest of roofs. You can stay aware of any damage by inspecting your roof after severe storms. It is also good practice to have a licensed roofing specialist conduct an annual roof inspection to identify and fix roof damage before it grows into a larger and more catastrophic issue. If you have not had your roof inspected in the past three years, give the roofing experts at Best Choice Roofing a call today to schedule a complimentary roof analysis.
Strong winds often cause roofing shingles to detach and blow off the roof deck. When this happens, your roof is at risk as missing shingles can introduce leaks into your attic and cause other damage to your home’s interior. Some wind damage is not easy to spot; this is true if the adhesive and waterproofing seal is damaged. Your roof may look undamaged from the outside, but eventually, could lead to interior damage.
When selecting new shingles, be sure to consider the manufacturer’s wind warranty associated with their brand of shingles. If shingle damage exceeds what the manufacturer will cover, you may want to file a claim with your homeowner’s insurance.
Here are some important wind damage signs to look for:
- Damaged or missing shingles.
- Narrow lines are running horizontally approximately 1-2 inches below the shingle above.
- Flapping or moving shingles when the wind blows.
- New gaps or spacing between shingles that were not there before.
Hail does not occur often, but it can leave behind significant property damage. When hail hits your roof, it creates indentations that may be hard to see from the ground but make your shingles more vulnerable to allowing water into your home. After any major hail event, consult with a reputable roofing contractor to examine the scope of the hail damage. If your property needs major repairs, you will need to file an insurance claim detailing how the damage occurred and the estimated cost to repair your roof. Best Choice Roofing specializes in identifying storm-related roof damage and has experience partnering with homeowners to make sure roof damage is well-documented for insurance purposes and expertly repaired. The weather and where you live play a key role in home insurance rates.

Potential signs of hail damage:
- Noticeable dents in your roof or other objects such as cars, fences, gutters, garage doors, window screens, etc.
- Broken or oddly shaped grooves on the shingles.
- An extensive collection of granules near the end of your downspout.
- Missing granules on your shingles, in a round formation and sporatically spread.

Makes your roof into a reliable, waterproof barrier
With the seal features, your roof will block water from entering your home from ice damming, rainstorms, or other water-related events. Having a roof that is properly sealed is the best way to prevent rot and mold from causing costly damage to your home.

With a rugged yet visually appealing layer and industrial adhesion, your roof will be able to withstand blow offs, carrying water away from the roof deck and your home. This design provides an added layer of protection for more exposed areas like eaves and peaks.

But, a great shingle is a reliable waterproof barrier, giving you the peace of mind to know your house is protected.One example is the patented SureNail Technology® is revolutionizing the nailing line and separating a good shingle from a great shingle.
