It was a pleasure to give these Minooka, IL homeowners the great looking red roof of their dreams!
How can you tell if you have hail damage? You can look for obvious visible signs like missing pieces of the roof, bruising in the shingles, and cracking in the shingles. However, these signs are not always visible from the ground and can be quite subtle. That's why the best way to tell if you have hail damage is to get the help of an experienced and trustworthy roofing contractor.
This is exactly what Denise of Antioch, IL did when she gave My-Pros a call following a huge hail storm which had caused immediate leaks in her roof. Our crew was quickly on the scene and we installed emergency tarping to keep water out of the home while Denise went through the insurance claims process for her roof replacement.
After the insurance claim was approved, our crew quickly got to work on her roof replacement. We started by tearing off the old roofing shingles from her damaged roof and then installed a synthetic ice and water underlayment. With the protective underlayment in place we proceeded to install the quality asphalt roofing shingles that Denise had chosen, CertainTeed Landmark shingles in the color Weathered Wood. With the new shingles installed Denise can now enjoy the benefits of a beautiful new replacement roof that will keep her home safe for many years to come!
Many homeowners wonder "how do I know if my roof is leaking?" Or, more generally, "how do I know my roof has a problem?" Roof damage is often subtle, but there are some signs you can look out for like water stains, drips, spots on exterior walls, and missing shingles. In the case of Kevin W. of Johnsburg, IL it was the squirrels living in his attic that started to tip him off. When the pest control professionals visited they told him there was serious hail damage to his shingles. He immediately contacted My-Pros and one of our Pros, Craig, was quickly on the scene. As you might expect, Craig quickly discovered Kevin's roof was in bad shape. Besides hail damage and a myriad of other problems, Kevin's roof was also aging rapidly and there were even granules coming off the roof exposing nails on the ridges.
Craig got Kevin's roof replacement approved by his insurance adjuster and we got to work. Our team arrived quickly and immediately set to work removing the existing shingles. Once the old roof was removed we installed a synthetic underlayment and ice and water shield around the eaves and other water-susceptible areas. We then installed beautiful replacement asphalt shingles. Kevin went with CertainTeed Landmark shingles in the color mission Brown. Not only does Kevin now have a beautiful new replacement roof, there's also no sign of squirrels in the attic!
