Powerful Storms Cause Roof Damage & More – November 2013November 18, 2013
Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the dozens of tornadoes that ripped across the Midwest on Sunday, November 17, 2013.
The severe storm damage has been reported throughout Illinois, including Evanston, Naperville, Rockford, Hanover Park, Oak Lawn, Carol Stream, Crystal Lake, Harvard, Lisle, Morton Grove, Northbrook, Orland Park, Roselle, and at both O’Hare and Midway airports. As we all know these severe storms with wind, rain and hail are the biggest enemies of any roof. Roof damage resulting from storms is the most common cause of roof leaks and problems. Storm and hail damage is not always visible to the untrained eye. That’s why it’s important to have your roof inspected by a qualified professional who is trained to spot the signs of storm, wind and hail damage.
In addition to ordinary forms of damage from hail, wind and rain storms, problems may also occur from clogged gutters and downspouts. During a storm, if the 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 any problems, severe damage may already have occurred.
Identifying roof damage from this severe weather is one of SMART Roofing, Inc.’s specialties. As Chicago roofing specialists serving the area since 1993, we can recognize and identify storm damage and problem areas that may look perfectly normal to you. We’ve also worked with homeowners and their insurances companies on thousands of wind, rain, and hail storm-related claims. If you live in Evanston, Naperville, Rockford, Hanover Park, Oak Lawn, Carol Stream, Crystal Lake, Harvard, Lisle, Morton Grove, Northbrook, Orland Park, Roselle, or the areas surrounding O’Hare and Midway airports, don’t delay. To make sure your roof hasn’t been damaged by the storm, call SMART Roofing, Inc. at 847.797.0404 for an inspection of your roof.
