May 28 we had a wicked hail storm that shredded our gardens, dented cars, broke plate glass windows, and now I'm hearing that roof damage needs to be checked out. I have contacted my insurance company apropos, but the deductible is $500 roof ( $250 for car dents). I'm already in hock for a probably $500 deductible for damage to my new kitchen floor from a leaking dishwasher. So, I guess right about now I'd like to know just how likely it is I'll have to replace the roof yet. I did notice when I went out onto a flattish porch roof to clean the gutter, that there was roof-shingle-like grit in the gutter, along with bits of plastic from the upper roof gutter being hit. I seem to be on a bad roll here.
So do I need to follow up on the roof which is only 8 years old, having been replaced after a wind storm blew off a third of it? The ads in the paper make delay or inaction sound pretty frightening Sure glad I don't live in an area with violent weather!
