Storm-Damaged Roof?

Storm-Damaged Roof?

We’re Your Trusted Solution!

When your home’s been hit by a storm, don’t trust your roof repair to just anyone. GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, delivers quality products and a team of factory-certified contractors to help homeowners who have been caught in Mother Nature’s path.

What is Storm Damage?

A storm can take on various forms: it can be a tornado, hurricane, hailstorm, heavy rain, or a snowstorm with strong winds.
Here are some details on what that means for your roof.

  • Hailstorms rarely last more than 15 minutes, but the damage can be devastating. Hail pounding on your roof can cause dents, missing asphalt, bruising, or cracking in your shingles.
  • Strong winds that typically accompany storms can cause shingles to crack, bend, or fly off, leaving your roof and the interior of your home vulnerable to leaks or further damage.

Do I Have Damage?

After a storm, assess the damage. Do not climb on the roof yourself, as the roof may be slippery and not structurally sound. Look for any blown-off, ruptured, or cracked shingles and damaged gutters or windows. (A good pair of binoculars can be a big help and keep you safer than climbing a ladder.) Inside, check for any leaks in the ceiling around lights or in the attic. See “Key Danger Signals of a Failing Roof” for more signs that your roof needs repair or replacement. If you have damage, call your local professional roofing contractor or find a factory-certified contractor on gaf.com.

Which Products Defend Against the Elements?

GAF Shingles can be installed anywhere in the U.S. because they all pass the ASTM D3161, Class F 110 mph wind test and the ASTM D7158, Class H 150 mph wind test. See our "Extreme Shingle Testing" video to see how much these shingles endure to protect your home.
