Last week on Tuesday 21st of April 2015 we had a hail storm that hit certain cities in the Upstate, SC area. The three main areas that were hit by hail that was big enough to cause damage to your property is Northern Greenville, Greer and Travelers Rest.
This is important for home owners to know because hail damage to your roof voids not only your workmanship warranty with the contractor who installed your roof but also the manufacturer warranty. Hail damage at about an inch or larger can cut the life of your roof in half and can lead to leaks a few years down the road.
Most people don't file claims with their insurance because they don't want their rates to go up. What they don't realize is that the insurance company can raise everyones rates in the area that got hit with a storm and you could be the only one paying for everyone else's damage except yours.
We suggest that you find a local contractor to inspect your roof or even the contractor that may have recently replaced your roof to come out and make sure your investment didn't get damaged. Feel free to fill out a form for any questions and ES Roof is glad to help.
