When mother nature strikes, the results can sometimes be devastating.

If you notice missing shingles or interior leaking, it is urgent to have the roof repaired or temporarily repaired as soon as possible. Contact us today to learn if it’s best to repair, replace or file a claim with your insurance company.
Living in Raleigh means sometimes having to deal with brutal hail storms. Hail damage can become a serious and costly problem if left untreated. Our consultants are trained to identify roof damage caused by hail such as dents, bruises, cracks and granular loss that overtime will affect the structural integrity of your roof. Once this happens your roof is more susceptible to interior damage.
High winds can cause severe damage to your roof. High winds will first begin by breaking adhesive seals on the shingles making them more susceptible. Shingles then become wind-damaged by increasing winds that then tear, crease or detach the shingles from the roof. When the wind dies down, your shingles may lay back in place and appear to be perfectly fine while leaving your roof compromised. Missing or wind damage shingles leave your decking exposed causing water to penetrate through your roofing system causing interior leaks. Anytime you experience high winds in your area, it’s essential to get an inspection to ensure the security of your roof.
Often it is very difficult to identify storm damage without getting up on the roof. Here are some images to help identify some things to look out for after a hail or wind storm. If you are ever unsure, contact Emerald Roofing and we’ll be able to assist you further.
