June 2013 Recent Storms and Roof Damage

June 27, 2013

You may have storm damage and don’t even know it. Throughout June 2013, heavy rain, hail and wind damage has been reported in the Chicago suburbs. In Aurora, Bolingbrook, Crete, Hoffman Estates, McHenry, Naperville, Oswego, Rockford, Schaumburg and Palatine, residents reported hail and wind damage. Hail can do significant damage, leaving holes, cuts and fractures in shingles. Just because your roof looks fine and has held up through our big storms, doesn’t necessarily mean that it is. Most storm damage is typically not visible from the ground. In addition to ordinary forms of damage from hail or wind, problems can surface from clogged gutters and downspouts. If the storm water is not properly directed to an unblocked gutter/downspout system, damage often occurs to the roof, the soffit, fascia and even the exterior walls. By the time you notice evidence of any problems, severe damage may already have occurred.
