Hail and Windstorm Inspections and Claims Assistance

San Antonio Roofing Hail DamageHailstorms are not uncommon to Texas and they happen in some parts of the state on an annual basis. While most hailstorms produce small hail that pose no threat to person or property, some can bring hail as large as over 1 inch in diameter, which is similar in size to a golf ball.

Large hail can cause damage to roofs, windows, skylights, siding and automobiles. While it’s easy to see the damage on a smooth painted surface like a car, it can be very hard to detect on a roof. Even though hail damage is not always visible to the eye, and may seem insignificant, it has a major effect on the life of your roofing system.

What should I do if I think I have hail damage?

Multi-Family Roofing Project

When replacing a roof on an apartment or condominium complex; safety, timing and site preparation must be the central focus. Working in a tightly-grouped community poses a unique set of challenges that are always addressed before the work commences. Shelter Pro has the experience to run large multi-family projects smoothly, minimizing the inconvenience to residents and managers. Most importantly we take every precaution to protect persons and property during the construction process.

Shelter Pro can provide owners and HOA’s with solutions to meet their needs and expert knowledge in selecting the proper roofing system. Experienced in low-slope, steep-pitch and everything in-between, Shelter Pro has access to the highest-quality roofing materials in the marketplace. Our skilled roofing installers have factory training and have completed numerous certifications in the following:

 

Fiberglass composition is the most common roofing choice in the San Antonio area for residential homes and is offered in a variety of colors and styles. Composition shingles have a fiberglass reinforcing mat at the center which is coated with asphalt and mineral fillers, and covered with colored UV reflective granules. The shingles carry a variety of warranties based on manufacturer and style. Shelter Pro guarantees our installation on all composition roofing for a minimum of 5 years.
Asphalt BUR is composed of multiple layers of reinforcing plies and asphalt forming a redundancy of waterproofing layers. The reflectivity of built up roofs depends on the surfacing material used. Gravel is the most common and they are referred to as asphalt and gravel roofs. Asphalt degradation is a growing concern. UV-rays oxidize the surface of the asphalt and produce a chalk-like residue. As plasticizers leach out of the asphalt, asphalt built-up roofs become brittle. Cracking and alligatoring inevitably follows, allowing water to penetrate the system causing blisters, cracks and leaks. Compared to other systems, installation of asphalt roofs is energy-intensive (hot processes typically use LP gas as the heat source), and contributes to atmospheric air pollution (toxic, and greenhouse gases are lost from the asphalt during installation).
Thermoplastic Polyolefin single-ply roofing. This roofing material can be fully adhered, mechanically fastened, or ballasted. TPO seam strengths are reported to be three to four times higher than EPDM roofing systems.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) membrane roofing is also known as vinyl roofing. Vinyl is derived from two simple ingredients: fossil fuel and salt. Petroleum or natural gas is processed to make ethylene, and salt is subjected to electrolysis to separate out the natural element chlorine. Ethylene and chlorine are combined to produce ethylene dichloride (EDC), which is further processed into a gas called vinyl chloride monomer (VCM). In the next step, known as polymerization, the VCM molecule forms chains, converting the gas into a fine, white powder – vinyl resin – which becomes the basis for the final process, compounding. In compounding, vinyl resin may be blended with additives such as stabilizers for durability, plasticizers for flexibility and pigments for color.
Ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber (EPDM) is a synthetic rubber most commonly used in single-ply roofing because it is readily available and simple to apply. Seaming and detailing has evolved over the years and is fast, simple and reliable with many membranes including factory applied tape, resulting in a faster installation. The addition of these tapes has reduced labor by as much as 75%.

EPDM is a low-cost membrane, but when properly applied in appropriate places, its warranted life-span has reached 30 years and its expected life-span has reached 50 years.

GALVALUME is a 55% Al-Zn coated sheet steel product that is ideally suited for most types of roofing and siding applications as well as unexposed automotive parts, appliances and miscellaneous applications like furniture, outdoor cabinetry, computer cases, gutters, pipe, etc. Since 1972, over 140 million tons* of licensed product has been produced globally. GALVALUME continues to gain approval by specifiers, architects, building owners and many others due to its versatility, ease of use, aesthetics and long-term performance.
