When Forster goes out to inspect your home's roof, we do not simply walk around on it, looking for hail damage. Our inspectors are trained to view the whole situation as well. We examine your venting, plumbing pipes, fascia, and siding, and ensure that your soffits are in good order. We advise on problems stemming from bad decking, poor flashing, and worn out chimney caps and mortar. We will even water test your roof if you have a leak to guarantee that we find the problem area and repair it as necessary.

Damage on a metal roof can sometimes be tricky as well. Denting from hail or flying debris can sometimes affect the visual cosmetics of the roof, but insurance will not generally pay for replacement of the roof unless some of those dents occur on seams, which are the weak points of a metal roof. Additionally, stepping on the seams of a metal roof can cause irreparable damage, so qualified service people must be used to address any heating and air conditioning repairs on the roof.

As a Class IV Impact Resistant option, metal roofing is a solid way to protect your sloped roof.
