If you live in a townhouse and have a shared roof with your neighbor, we strongly recommend replacing your roofs at the same time with the same shingle. Otherwise you may end up looking like this…YIKES!
When a hailstone hits your roof it causes damage by either removing or implanting the granules on your shingle surface. If the stone is large enough it will cause immediate leaks. In the very least, it will expose the asphalt to harmful UV rays which will eventually cause your roof to leak.
Often times our customers had no idea their roof needed to be replaced. A good indication that you may need a new roof is when you see signs of degranulation. Degranulation is most easily spotted in your splash blocks or any other adjacent paving such as driveways, sidewalks or patios.
