Every Friday we're answering your questions!

Here's another one we get a lot whenever a hail storm comes through.

"What does hail damage even look like? And how do I know my roof may be damaged?"

Here are 4 things you can look for after a storm.

If you do find any of these signs of damage, call your local roofing contractor and they can give you a professional opinion!

1. Dents in Gutters and Downspouts

Especially the extensions that stretch away from the home! The lightweight aluminum these are made out of can get damaged very easily.
