Wind Damage


Hail Damage
Hail Damage to a roof is defined as damage to roofing as a diminution of water-shedding capability or a reduction in the expected long-term life of the roofing material. Specifically defined, functional hail damage causes splits to cedar shakes and damage to asphalt shingles as punctures, tears, or fractures (bruises) in the shingle mats.

Hail can damage Cedar Shakes & Shingles when even as small as quarter size. Depending on variables such as hardness and wind speeds these stones can fly at speeds in excess of 150mph. When falling in such fashion, depending on the age of the roof and size of the hail typical Shakes & Shingle hold little resistance. Hail will also cause damage to other exterior fixtures around a property such as siding, gutters, window screens, painted fences, fascia, ac units, mail boxes, shrubbery and any and all things in the path of these destructive stones.
When wind passes over and around a building, it generates inward and outward pressures on the walls and inward or outward (uplift) pressures on the roofs. Inward (positive) pressures are generated on the windward side of the building as the wind blows against a wall or roof surface such as a steep or semi steep roof. This positive pressure can lead to damage shingles, lifting the tabs so that the pressure can get under the tab/shake. Ridge caps can be blown off and entire sections of shingles can be lifted and or bent/creased before laying back down to lay flat on the roof again

    I absolutely recommend JnJ! They replaced my roof, and they were very professional, accommodating  and fast. There were no hidden fees and it was an extremely easy process to install our roof in the Chicago Suburbs.  Mike was so great to work with on our roofing project, and he would answer calls/texts, when I had some questions, even in the evening hours.

    Best in the business. Jason and staff were not only professional, but very knowledgeable. We had a pretty bad hail storm which caused some leaks in a building I manage. They came out, gave me a very fair price and got the work done very clean and very fast. They were also very kind and patient to educate me on everything I needed to know about my situation.
