2014 Roofing Services in Atlanta Georgia Area

Getting ready for storm season.  Generally Hail Storms occur in the Spring of the year.  When hail or wind storms occurits very important that you have your home checked for Hail Damage within a short period of time after the actual hail storm date.  Why?  Because Insurance companies are generally more likely to approve roofing claims for hail damage right after the storm.

At HAPs weve got years of experience in determining if damage has occurred and we have years of experience dealing with the insurance adjusters who inspect your roof for hail damage or wind damage to determine if your claim should be approved for roof replacement.

It is totally up to the insurance company, however, our experience in roofing claims, roofing construction, and roofing repair is a valuable tool for helping you get approved for your roofing claim.   Why?  Because you have someone on the roof during the adjuster appointment to help show the adjuster where the hail damage occurred.

If you have leaks or if you believe you may have damage to your roof, call Geovani Reyes at 770-906-1356 to arrange for an inspection of your roof.  If hail damage or wind damage is not present, we can give you an estimate for repairs which need to be done to stop the leak.

Be proactive with your roof.  A leaking roof can lead to much larger problems if you dont take care of your roof.  If you need roofing services in the Atlanta, Georgia area, call us today.

Large Hail Causes Damage Across Metro Atlanta Area March 2013

Huge hail dropped on the Metro Atlanta area this week causing widespread hail damage across town.  Hail as large as 2.75 dropped from the sky breaking windshields and causing damage to roofs.

Numerous reports have shown storm damage has occured from hail in many areas including Stockbridge, Riverdale, Douglassville, McDonough, Newnan.  Not only did hail hit the newsworthy areas, we also have confirmed reports of hail in many cities across the Metro Atlanta area.

Any hailstorms which produce hail over 1 in diameter can cause damage to roofs.

We fully  expect the out of town storm chasers to rush into town in the next few days.  What does this mean to you, the homeowner?  First, you are in an area where insurance companies expect to pay for roof replacement.  Thats why the storm chasers come into town.  They know the percentages of approval of roof claims will be high for the next 6 months.

Heres the problem you dont understand.  They will help you file the claim and theyll help you get your roof claim approved.  Those are the good things.  The downside is. the out of town roofing companies will use roofing crews they dont know and dont oversee.  Then in 1-2 years when you have a problem because of poor installation. they will be gone.

Roof Leaking. Causes and Prevention (Metro Atlanta Roofing)

While many Metro Atlanta Homeowners have had their roof replaced in the past few years as a result of hail damage or wind damage, many stillhave leaks and/or issues with their roof.  In all honesty, most roof leaks occur as a result of the following issues:

  • Flashing, Sealant, or Wood Rot at Chimneys.
  • Flashing issues where roof meets walls.
  • Home Asset Protection Services, LLC Protecting Homeowners Across Metro Atlanta
  • Cracked or rotted Pipe Boots.
  • Poorly sealed or rusted exhaust vents.
  • Missing or Loosely nailed shingles.
  • Nail Pops or Toe Board Holes.
  • Gutter Issues.
  • Improper Roof Installation.

The good news is most of these roof repairs can be performed for a modest cost (as long as they are performed early before major damage occurs).

At the bottom of this article you can see pictures of some of the aforementioned roof issues which have been described.

So what are the early signs of roof leaks?

  1. Brown spots on ceilings.
  2. Dripping sound during rain.
  3. Wet insulation in attic.
  4. Wet spots on wood decking in attic.

Most people don’t realize……..your roof needs regular maintanence just like a car needs an oil change or a person needs a checkup.

While shingles are designed to last 15-40 years, many other components of the roof do not last this long.  The pipe boots (rubber “collars”) which wrap around plumbing pipes (white pipes coming out of your roof) often dry rot after 5-7 years.  Exhaust vents rust or have sealant wear off after a few years.  Exposed nails on the ridge need resealed to prevent rust and/or leaks, ventilation such as turtle vents (black boxes generally on the back of your roof) need resealing,   Additionally, in some instances whoever installed your roof set their nail guns pressure too high or too low causing nails to either “shoot” through the shingle or pop out causing lift or holes in the shingle.

Our “Roof Tuneup” is the ideal solution to not only stop leaks, but to PREVENT leaks and maintain the life of your roof.

With the roof tuneup we:

  1. Inspect your roof for overall condition.
  2. Repair, reseal, or replace pipe boots.
  3. Repair, reseal, and paint your exhaust vents.
  4. Make minor repairs to flashing at chimneys, where walls meet roof, etc.
  5. Repair or reseal turtle vents or power vents.
  6. Reseal all exposed nails.
  7. Repair and seal all nail pops.
  8. Repair and/or seal toe board holes.
  9. Replace up to 10 missing shingles
  10. Seal all chimney caps.

The roof tuneup works.  We recommend a roof tuneup every 3-5 years until your entire roof needs replacing.  Of course if a major hail storm or wind storm occurs or if a tree/tree limb falls on your house you should have an inspection of your roof performed soon thereafter to determine if storm damage has occured on your roof.
