Heavy winds cause about $1 billion in damages in the United States every year. Approximately 85% of all windstorm-related insurance claims are due to roof damage
Windstorms are weather events that produce strong winds and violent gusts accompanied by very little or no precipitation. Hurricanes, cyclones, derechos and tornados are often classified as windstorms as are any events that include heavy winds strong enough to cause significant property damage. Many states have provisions for windstorm insurance riders that can be purchased by homeowners to cover damage to property and personal belongings.
Assistance With Insurance Claims Process
Many home inspectors do not even know what to look for because they receive no formal training on hail damaged roofs.
A home's roof must be physically inspected by a person who has training and experience to determine if there is actual hail damage. Insurance companies send their adjusters to special training so they can properly identify hail damage to a home. And, the insurance company is generally NOT ON YOUR SIDE. You may be thinking to yourself that you remember a hail storm but looked up at your roof and did not notice any damage. The fact of the matter is you can’t see hail storm damage from the ground.
Hail can do damage that you might not even see for years.
With hail damage you will see some of the tiny granules of a roof missing. Over time the roof damage will get progressively worse and shorten it’s lifespan. Eventually your roof will end up leaking. Even if your roof has minimal damage you have a valid insurance claim and should file with your insurance company. The damage caused by a hail storm might not cause your roof to leak for years. This makes it critical to have someone who is qualified to inspect your roof.

Quality Roofing Since 2015
Low Slope Roofing Material Options
This material was designed to combine the durability of rubber with the proven performance of hot air weldable seams. TPO is typically white due to its reflective due to its money savings characteristics, yet can be purchased in a varity of different colors. TPO membranes are installed fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted. TPO is highly resistant to tears, impact, and punctures with good flexibility to allow building movement. TPO has been tested as having excellent resistance to ozone and algae, plus the material is environmentally friendly and safe to install. TPO is highly recommended by J5 Roofing & Restoration because it is easy to maintain and in expensive to repair.
A BUR roof consists of multiple plies of roof felts that are laminated together with bitumen. Built-up roof material can consist of bitumen-saturated felt, coated felt, polyester felt, or other fabrics. A surfacing layer is generally applied and can be composed of asphalt, aggregate (gravel or slag), emulsion, or a granule-surfaced cap sheet. Built-up roofing is one of the oldest and most reliable ways of installing a new roof. It was first known as “composition roofing” and started in the 1840s. BURs are generally installed with asphalt and have three basic components, (1) the waterproofing component, (2) the reinforcing component, and (3) the surfacing component, which is used to protect the other components from the elements.
Asphalt roof shingles are the most popular roofing material used on homes across North America, and with good reason. They are designed to protect a home through decades of weathering with minimal upkeep, and are available in hundreds of colors and styles.
Different Types of Roof Shingles
STRIP SHINGLESAlso known as 3-tab shingles (due to the cut of the shingle) or simply strips, strip shingles are the original and most basic asphalt shingles. They are made from a single layer of asphalt and have a very flat appearance that typically offers a slate look. Since they are made from a single layer, they generally weigh and cost less than other asphalt shingles. Prior to designer shingles being introduced in the 1980s, strip shingles were the predominant roofing shingle in the market. Today, strip shingles are used most often used by home builders that manufacture inexpensive homes, or by homeowners who are replacing roofing shingles on residences that already have strip shingles on the roof. CertainTeed strip shingles include products such as CT™ 20 and XT™ 30.
DIMENSIONAL SHINGLESAlso known as architectural or laminate shingles, dimensional shingles are the most prevalent asphalt shingles. These products are manufactured with two or more layers of asphalt that are fused together for a thicker and richer multi-dimensional appearance, and are engineered to replicate the wood shake and natural slate roofing aesthetics. Dimensional shingles are typically heavier than strip shingles, and have improved warranty protection. CertainTeed’s Landmark® shingles are a prototypical design for a dimensional roofing shingle.
LUXURY SHINGLESLuxury shingles are the highest-quality laminated shingles available, offering a differentiated appearance or functionality that outclasses that of dimensional shingles. Apart from being shingle ‘heavyweights’ that offer premium protection for weathering, luxury shingles are stunning to look upon, presenting the highest quality, coloration, and dimensionality. These products offer the most realistic representation of the old-world wood shake and quarried slate roofing. CertainTeed’s Grand Manor®, Carriage House®, and Arcadia Shake® products are prime examples of Luxury roofing shingles.
