Roof Repairing After A Hail Storm

Preliminary estimates say that the June Hail storm cause over 52 million dollars in damages in the Denver metro area  Over 400,000 homes were damages. As a result roofing repair in Colorado is a booming bussiness.

Hail damage is vary hard to spot  So it is powerfully suggested to get a roofer and your adjuster out to look at your roof and assess the damage (preferably at the same time).  Once your insurance company agrees to pay for a new roof installation, you should get your roof replaced by a professional and liscensed Colorado roofer as soon as possible.

A few things though that you should know about your roof.

Tear-off: The price of your roof repair should include tearing off the old roof down to the decking and replacing rot-damaged deck areas and carrying off the debris.

Home insurance policies cover different things but most at least cover one layer of shingles. If you let your roofer skip the tear-off and your two-layer roof is damaged by hail, you wind up responsible for the expense of tearing off both of them.

Decking: Rotted roof decking should be replaced with decking of its same thickness. In new construction, builders are using seven-sixteenths inch OSB (oriented strand board: glue and wood shavings). Older construction usually has three-quarter inch solid lumber decking.

“Good” grade has a 30-year warranty and “better” has a 40-year warranty. Price? You get what you pay for.

The smart thing is not to sacrifice on quality and performance of the main components protecting you and probably your biggest purchase from harsh conditions.

Roofing felt: Roofing felt comes in 15-, 30- and 43-pound weights. The 30-pound is better than 15 because it’s thicker and provides more of a vapor barrier. Felt should be lapped 19 inches for double coverage if the roof pitch is less than 3-12, meaning a 3-inch rise for every 12 horizontal inches.

Valleys and vents are prone to leaks from water and/or ice damage and products such as Ice and Water Shield create a membrane material that seals tightly around the nails to prevent seepage.

Staples vs. nails: Use galvanized or zinc-plated shingling nails of sufficient length to penetrate shingles, felt and decking at a rate of 2 pounds per square. The nails usually must be 1 1/4 inches or longer.

Staples eventually “back out,” but nails don’t. Quality roofing nails have a wire welded to their shanks that prevents their turning and working free.

To get a higher rated use 6 nails per shingle instead of the usual 4.

Flashing: Sometimes, “drip-edge” — L-shaped galvanized or painted steel flashing — is used on jobs where drip-edge was used originally or where shake or wood shingle roofs or two-layer composition roofs are being replaced. The drip edge hides the deck edge. The felt should be nailed over the flashing, and vent-stack flashings should be replaced.

Closed valleys: In the past, the “open valley” was made by flashing the junction of two roof plains, shingling down almost to the valley bottom and cutting the merging shingles off diagonally so the flashing showed. Now Tuttle uses a 6 layer valley. It consists of overlapping the valley with felt, then Ice & Water Shield, felt, Aluminum flashing, Felt again, then the shingle.
