Most hail damage is not obvious to the untrained eye, but looks can be deceiving Hail that is 1.5 inches in diameter or larger can damage your shingles, siding, windows and gutters. In many cases the visible signs of damage are difficult to spot without a close inspection. If hail is driven by high winds or the hail storm lasts for more than a few minutes, the potential for your roof to suffer damage increases significantly. Asphalt shingles will suffer dents, bruises and the loss of the protective granules that protect the asphalt from the uv light from the sun accelerating the deterioration of the roof. Larger hail stones can puncture, fracture and tear the shingles causing more imminent threat of moisture penetrating the roof system. Other factors that make roofs more susceptible to hail damage is colder temperature, unsupported shingles or multiple layers of roofing shingles. Older roofs become more brittle as the shingles harden, thus making the roof less hail resistant.Learn More Here

Roof Replacement – Pre-Construction
If we are installing a roof you’ll need to invest a little time to safeguard your home. There will be vibrations moving through your home as the roof structure is removed and nailed back into place. Vibrations can move items sitting on shelves or fastened to walls and ceiling.
- Remove items from the walls, including pictures, wall hangings and any fragile decorations.
- Remove delicate, breakable and/or valuable items from shelves.
- Tighten and secure light fixtures, globes and decorations that are hanging from the ceilings or walls.
- Move potted plants away from work areas and protect them from falling debris.
- Keep small children & pets inside or away from the work area at all times.
- If possible, remove all vehicles from the garage, keep them off the driveway & away from the house. Falling debris may damage or scratch them.
- Staging Area: Typically we will be using your driveway as a staging area for our product and materials. Supply trucks will be dropping materials to be stored on your roof. Our debris trailer will be parked on your driveway during the time we are removing your old roof.
- Disarm all alarms and security systems. The nailing vibration has been known to set them off.
- Cover any items stored in the attic.
- Remove any items that may cause a tripping hazard to workers.
- The crew will need access to an electric and water source.
- This is a construction area. During the removal and replacement of your roof there will temporarily be nails and other roofing material around your home. PLEASE be cautious!
- To avoid tire damage please do not drive your car anywhere near the work site.
- When entering or leaving please exercise caution. Construction material may fall from the roof.
- Please be sure all gates are closed before you let your pets out. Our work crews will do their best to keep them closed but its best to make sure.
- We will clean up your property when we finish installing your roof. Thousands of nails and fasteners came off of your roof. We may miss a few so please be cautious.
- K&H Home Solutions will always practice “safety First” and has an outstanding record but mishaps can happen.
- If you encounter any problems during construction please feel free to immediately contact our office or your K&H Roofing Specialist.
