Chicago Severe Weather – Storm Damage – Roof, Siding, WindowsApril 10, 2015
Hail and rain started blanketing parts of Chicago Wednesday evening as a wave of severe storms that could produce hail and damaging winds, possibly some tornadoes, moved through much of the Midwest, Wednesday evening through Thursday.
As of 11 p.m., pea-to-dime-sized hail began falling in parts of the North Side as a couple of thunderstorm cells developed over the city, according to the National Weather Service.
The tornadoes came at the end of a long day of heavy weather. An earlier storm brought winds of 35 mph and heavy rainfall and hail to Chicago and Chicago suburbs.
The weather service issued a flood warning for the Des Plaines River at Riverside from Friday afternoon to Saturday evening. Minor flooding is forecast for Friday evening and expected to subside by Saturday afternoon, according to the warning.
Residents of the Chicago suburbs are all too familiar with the type of damage that hail storms can cause, but when it comes to the roof hail damage, you may need to call a professional.
Many homeowners make the mistake of only looking for damage in the form of missing shingles. However, there could be damage underneath the shingles which can cause leaks to occur well after the storm has passed. If you are unsure of whether your roof or gutters have been damaged, look around at your landscaping to see if hail has blistered any nearby trees or shrubs. When hail is strong enough to do damage to these elements, chances are, you also have some sort of roof hail damage.
