Ana, Bill, Claudette, Danny, Elsa, Fred, Grace, Henri, Ida,..what letter of the alphabet are we on now? Every day the news announces a new hurricane. Okay, we are exaggerating, but there have been a lot of storms. With peak hurricane season here and roofers already knocking on your door, you’re probably wondering, “How does hurricane weather affect my roof? What does storm damage look like?”
With every storm season in Raleigh, NC comes an army of roofers canvassing the neighborhoods. There are yard signs galore and construction projects daily. Before signing with the first roofing contractor available, we strongly recommend you do your research.
In 2012, the NC area was hit with a large hail storm. Cary, Apex, Raleigh, North Durham were among the many areas affected. Lately, a wave of homeowners has approached us asking for hail damage inspections. So far, most of them have had some storm damage and have qualified for a partial or entire roof replacement paid by their insurance company!
