Unveiling Hidden Impacts: How Hail Damage Affects Your Asphalt Roof and Wallet

The Hidden Costs of Hail Damage to Asphalt Composite Roofs

When hailstones relentlessly pelt your roof, the damage may not always be apparent at first glance. Yet, beneath the surface, your asphalt shingles could be suffering significant harm that could cause a domino effect of problems for your home and finances.

Granule Loss – More Than Just a Cosmetic Concern

Macro of hail damage on a shingle residential roof circled with a chalk outline during a home inspection.

Every asphalt shingle is coated with granules – those tiny, rough particles that give your roof its color and, more importantly, protect the asphalt layer from harmful UV radiation. Hailstones, particularly those of significant size, can dislodge these granules, leaving the asphalt layer exposed to the sun’s damaging rays. Over time, this exposure can lead to shingle decay and premature roof failure, necessitating costly repairs or even a full replacement earlier than expected.

Voided Warranty – Your Protection, Dissolved

Many homeowners believe that their shingle warranty will cover hail damage. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Many asphalt shingle warranties have clauses that exclude coverage for “acts of God,” such as hailstorms. Furthermore, failing to promptly address hail damage could void your warranty entirely, leaving you on the hook for repair costs.

Return on Investment (ROI) – A Hit on Home Value

Neglecting hail damage can also lower your home’s value. Future buyers might hesitate to invest in a property with a compromised roof, particularly if they might soon be facing roof replacement costs. Moreover, home inspections usually reveal hail damage, potentially affecting the negotiation process or even leading to transaction termination.

Structural Damage and Water Infiltration – A Risk to Your Home’s Integrity

If hail damage is left untreated, the deterioration can lead to water leaks, causing structural damage and promoting the growth of mold and mildew. This not only jeopardizes your home’s structural integrity but also poses health risks for your family.

Insurance Complications – Navigating the Fine Print

Most home insurance policies cover hail damage. However, delays in filing a claim or lack of proper documentation can lead to disputes. You could face increased premiums or, in extreme cases, policy cancellation. Additionally, property maintenance codes may legally require you to address significant hail damage, or you could face fines.

A Potential Homebuyer Credit – Turn Damage Into Advantage

On the flip side, if you’re considering buying a home with hail damage, you could negotiate a lower price or a credit at closing to cover repair costs.

In conclusion, hail damage to asphalt composite roofs goes far beyond mere cosmetic issues. It’s a threat to your investment, home value, and safety. When the storm clears, trust Allied Emergency Services to provide a thorough inspection and transparent consultation.

The Xactimate Conundrum: The Importance of Proper Use for Property Restoration Estimates

Greetings, Midwest property owners! If you’ve been grappling with understanding your Xactimate estimate, you’ve arrived at the right place. Allied Emergency Services is here to guide you through the process of navigating the complex world of Xactimate estimates and how to confidently estimate your scope of repair for pre-loss condition.

Xactimate and You: What’s the Connection?

Xactimate, a software solution from Xactware, is a crucial tool that plays a pivotal role in the home repair and insurance industries. Insurance adjusters often claim it’s the industry standard for determining the cost of repairs to a property. The estimates it generates cover everything from material costs to the labor involved, attempting to provide a fair and comprehensive estimate for your home repairs.

Xactimate: A Powerful Ally or a Hidden Adversary?

Xactimate, an estimating software solution from Xactware, is the insurance industry standard for calculating repair costs. Its comprehensive approach encompasses everything from material costs to labor involved. However, when misused or manipulated, it can drastically minimize the authorized scope of repair, leading to an unfair estimate that can leave property owners with even more damages.

Misuse of Xactimate: A Damaging Trend

Regrettably, some actors within the restoration industry misuse Xactimate, producing low minimized estimates that may even be unlawful to perform. These ‘estimates’ can exclude crucial items, apply incorrect line items with lower unit costs, or report a lower quantity of required materials. This misuse can drastically decrease the estimated value of the necessary repairs.

The True Value of an Xactimate Estimate

In the hands of a knowledgeable and ethical restoration contractor, Xactimate can serve as an accurate tool to establish an estimate. Here’s how:

  1. Localized Pricing Data: Xactimate claims to use real-time data reflecting your local market for pricing, ensuring the estimate is accurate and fair. While this is certainly not always true, it might get you in the ballpark.
  2. Detailed Cost Breakdown: A correct Xactimate estimate which contains all of the required line items offers a detailed breakdown of material and labor costs, providing transparency.
  3. Sketch Integration: It includes detailed, to-scale diagrams of your property for accurate measurements and layouts. Always confirm the measurements are accurate.

The Contractor’s Estimate: Your Shield Against Undervaluation

An ethical, knowledgeable, and experienced restoration contractor offers a safeguard against such practices. They ensure their estimate, which supersedes the basic Xactimate estimate, is accurate and fair reflecting local building code and best practices. Here’s what a contractor’s estimate brings to the table:

  1. Inclusion of All Repairs: Your contractor ensures that no necessary repair needs are left out of the estimate to restore your loss to pre-loss condition.
  2. Appropriate Line Items: They apply the correct line items in the estimate, truly reflecting the cost and value of the work to be performed by the contractor.
  3. Real-Time Communication: They will be able to answer your questions regarding the building codes and requirements for your project and have hands on experience with the repairs you need.

Allied Emergency Services: Your Xactimate Experts

Allied Emergency Services is committed to ensuring full accurate estimates and justifiable scope of repairs. We have extensive experience with Xactimate, and we stand against misuse and manipulation of this crucial estimating tool.

Hail Storm Hits Darien and Joliet: Protecting Your Midwest Property Including Chicago

Hail storms and landspouts can cause significant damage to property, especially in areas that aren’t prepared for such unexpected weather phenomena. A storm report from June 1, 2023, details significant hail and a brief landspout in the Midwest region, particularly in Darien, Wisconsin, Joliet, Illinois, and even parts of the greater Chicago area.

A Brief But Dangerous Landspout Near Darien

At around 10:24 PM, a trained spotter reported a brief landspout 4 miles SSE from Darien, Wisconsin. Initially reported from the intersection of US Highway 14 and WI-67, the landspout was confirmed shortly afterwards.

Landspouts are tornadoes that form from non-supercell thunderstorms. While typically weaker than supercell tornadoes, they can still pose a threat to properties, especially in rural areas.

A Hail Storm Sweeps Joliet

Earlier in the evening, around 7:50 PM, a severe hail storm impacted Joliet, Illinois, especially on the west side of the city. The hail, roughly the size of a quarter, pelted the city for almost ten minutes.

Hail can cause substantial damage to homes and vehicles, cracking windows, denting siding, and even leading to roof damage.

Impact on the Greater Chicago Area

The storm didn’t spare the Chicago area either. Approximately 2,055 homes within the storm’s swath were affected. Chicago, known for its diverse architecture and strong community, took a considerable hit from this hail storm.

When Hail Strikes: Unpacking the Science of Chicagoland’s Hail Damage

Mother Nature can often deliver a blow when we least expect it. In Chicagoland, one such force comes in the form of hailstorms. As a homeowner or property manager in this region, understanding the science and data behind hail damage is critical. With this knowledge, you can mitigate damage and protect your investment more effectively.

The Science of Hail Formation

Hailstones originate in powerful thunderstorm clouds, particularly those with intense updrafts. These updrafts carry supercooled water droplets upwards where they collide and freeze together. The hailstone is kept aloft by the storm’s updrafts, growing layer by layer until it becomes too heavy for the wind to support. Then it falls to the ground as hail.

Hail in Chicagoland: The Data Speaks

In the Chicagoland area, hail storms are a frequent weather hazard. According to the NOAA’s Severe Weather Database, Cook County, which encompasses the majority of Chicagoland, recorded over 100 hail events in the past decade, some with hailstones over 1.5 inches in diameter.

The size of the hailstones matters significantly when it comes to damage. Hail less than 1 inch in diameter (approximately the size of a quarter) can cause minor damage to older roofs and siding. Hail 1-2 inches in diameter (golf ball-sized) can damage most roofs and cars. Hailstones larger than 2 inches can cause significant structural damage and even break windows.

Interestingly, the time of day can also impact the severity of hail damage. For instance, hailstorms that occur in the late afternoon or evening, when people are likely to be home, often result in more reports of damage compared to early morning storms when people may be away or asleep.

Implications for Property Owners

If you’re a property owner in Chicagoland, it’s important to stay informed about hail forecasts and have a plan in place for when a hailstorm hits. Property measures such as impact-resistant roofing and regular maintenance can reduce potential hail damage.

In Summary

Being prepared for hailstorms is a necessary part of living in Chicagoland. Stay informed, understand the science behind these events, and take necessary precautions to safeguard your property.

Don’t let hail damage stress you out. Trust our experts at Allied Emergency Services to handle the cleanup and restoration process. Contact us at 1-800-792-0212 or visit Allied Emergency Services now.

Midwest Hail Storms: An In-depth Review of the May 7, 2023 Event

In the annals of severe weather, few phenomena generate as much awe, and often as much damage, as hailstorms. Each year, many communities across the Midwest are subject to these remarkable and destructive meteorological events. In today’s post, we’ll delve into the details of one particular hailstorm that swept across the region on May 7, 2023, causing significant damage to several counties in Illinois.

Afternoon Commotion in Carbondale and Sesser

The afternoon of May 7, 2023, started as any typical Sunday for the residents of Carbondale and Sesser, both situated in Southern Illinois. But by 2:17 PM, the serene atmosphere in Carbondale was disrupted when the city witnessed a hailstorm, with hailstones the size of a quarter (1 inch in diameter) raining down on the city.

A mere eight minutes later, at 2:25 PM, a similar event unfolded in Sesser, Franklin County. The hailstorm was equally violent, with quarter-sized hail reported. Local media quickly relayed the event, which was confirmed by radar.

A Golf Ball-Sized Surprise in New Burnside and Okawville

The intensity of the hailstorms increased as the day wore on. At 2:45 PM, New Burnside, located in Johnson County, was pelted with golf-ball-sized hail (1.75 inches). This unexpected weather occurrence was rapidly reported by local media.

Later in the day, at 6:00 PM, a sizeable hailstorm struck Okawville, Washington County. Residents shared pictures on Twitter, showing hailstones almost the size of golf balls. This event corrected previous hail reports from the area, underscoring the seriousness of the day’s weather events.

Around 6:40 PM, a significant hail event was reported two miles north of Nashville, Washington County. The hailstones, reported as being the size of gumballs, signified the escalating severity of the weather conditions along the I-64 and 127 highway corridor.

An Evening to Remember in Chatham

As evening fell, Chatham, Sangamon County, bore the brunt of the day’s stormy onslaught. By 8:02 PM, hail the size of golf balls rained down on the city. Just two minutes later, at 8:04 PM, the hailstones reduced slightly in size, reported as 1.25 inches in diameter. However, even a mile northeast of Chatham, the hail size was still substantial, matching the size of a quarter.


The hailstorm event of May 7, 2023, is a stark reminder of the power of Mother Nature. From the afternoon through the evening, this major weather event traversed across several counties in Illinois, bringing with it considerable damage. Stay tuned as we continue to track and report on these significant weather events across the Midwest.

In this blog post, we will delve into the world of Midwest hail storms, explore the potential damages they cause, and provide tips on how to address hail damage effectively.

The Nature of Midwest Hail Storms:

  1. Frequency: The Midwest experiences a high frequency of hail storms during the spring and summer months due to its location in the heart of Tornado Alley.
  2. Size and Speed: Hailstones can range in size from as small as a pea to as large as a softball. They can fall at speeds of up to 100 mph, causing significant damage to property and structures.
  3. Sudden Onset: Hail storms can develop rapidly, giving homeowners little time to prepare for the potential damage.

Understanding the Impact and Damage:

  1. Roof Damage: Hailstones can cause dents, punctures, bruises, and granule loss on roof shingles, leading to a weakened roofing system and potential leaks.
  2. Siding and Exterior Damage: Hail can dent, crack, or chip siding, windows, and other exterior elements of your home.
  3. Vehicle Damage: Cars parked outside during a hail storm may suffer dents, broken windows, and paint chipping.
  4. Landscape and Outdoor Structures: Hail can damage or destroy landscaping, gardens, decks, and outdoor furniture.

Addressing Hail Damage Effectively:

  1. Assess the Damage: After a hail storm, assess your property for any visible signs of damage. Document all damages with photos and notes.

  3. Hire a Professional: Engage the services of a reputable and experienced contractor specializing in hail damage repairs.
  4. Timely Repairs: Address hail damage promptly to prevent further damage and deterioration.

By being proactive in assessing and repairing damage, homeowners can protect their investment and maintain the integrity of their property.

Understanding Insurance Restoration Contracts: Types, Pros, and Cons

When it comes to insurance restoration claims, understanding the contract types available is crucial. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the three most common contract types: Assignment of Benefits, Home Remodeling Contracts/Proposals, and Contingency Agreements. We’ll cover the pros and cons of each, so you can make informed decisions when working with a restoration contractor and always consult with an attorney if you need legal advice. This is not legal advice.

Assignment of Benefits (AOB)

An Assignment of Benefits contract allows the policyholder to assign their insurance claim benefits directly to a restoration contractor. This type of agreement can streamline the restoration process and ensure that the contractor receives payment for their work while eliminating or reducing any financial responsibility of the homeowner.

In this situation, the insurance company is the buyer because
they are providing the funds for the repair services through the insurance claim. The company is the seller because they are providing the repair services in exchange for payment from the insurance company.

It is generally in the property owner’s best interest to assign their insurance benefits to a company providing repair services because it allows them to receive the services without having to pay out of pocket. Without the assignment of insurance benefits, the property owner will be responsible for paying for the repair services themselves. This will include unknowns that commonly surface after repairs begin which is very common during roof replacement and insurance restoration.


  • Streamlines the payment process
  • Reduces delays in starting the project
  • Ensures contractor receives payment


  • Loss of control over some parts of the insurance claim
  • Potential for disputes between the contractor and the insurance company

Home Remodeling Contract/Proposal

A Home Remodeling Contract or Proposal is a detailed agreement between the homeowner and the contractor outlining the scope of work, materials, costs, and timelines for a restoration project. This type of contract is commonly used for non-insurance related restoration projects or for projects where the homeowner wants more control over the process.


  • Detailed outline of work and costs
  • Clear expectations for both parties
  • Allows for more control by the homeowner


  • Generally requires much negotiation and many revisions
  • The homeowner is responsible for managing insurance claim reimbursement
  • More complex paperwork and administrative tasks required of homeowner
  • Homeowner personally assumes the debt and financial responsibility of the services regardless of insurance claim outcome
  • Homeowners lack of experience can be detrimental to their claim

Contingency Agreement

A Contingency Agreement is a contract between the homeowner and the contractor that states the contractor will perform the restoration work if the insurance claim is approved. This type of contract is often used when the scope of work and costs are uncertain or dependent on insurance approval.


  • Allows for flexibility in project scope and costs
  • No upfront payment or commitment required
  • Encourages contractor to work with you and your insurance company


  • Uncertainty in project scope and costs until insurance approval
  • Potential for disputes if insurance payout is lower than expected or lawfully required items are omitted
  • Less control for the homeowner and the contractor in the restoration process

Understanding the three main types of contracts in insurance restoration claims is essential for homeowners navigating the restoration process. By knowing the pros and cons of Assignment of Benefits, Home Remodeling Contracts, and Contingency Agreements, you can make informed decisions and choose the best contract type for your situation. Always consult with a trusted restoration contractor and legal advisor before signing any contracts to ensure you fully understand your rights and obligations.

The Importance of Roof Plywood in Roof Replacement: Restoring Your Home to Pre-Loss Condition

When it comes to roof replacement, homeowners often focus on the shingles, but there’s more to a roof than meets the eye. Roof plywood, or decking, is a critical component of the roofing system and plays a significant role in the restoration process. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the reasons why roof plywood must be considered part of the roof replacement scope of repair when restoring a loss to pre-loss condition, and the industry standards that support this perspective.

When it comes to replacing a damaged roof, understanding the importance of each component is crucial. According to the International Residential Code (IRC) Chapter 9, Roof Assemblies, a roof assembly includes various essential elements such as the roof deck, substrate or thermal barrier, insulation, vapor retarder, and roof covering. The IRC outlines the design and construction of roof assemblies, ensuring that all components work together to create a functional and durable roof system.

The roof deck, typically made of plywood, is an integral part of the roof assembly. It provides the structural support and a suitable substrate for the application of new roofing materials. As the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) states in its Roofing Manual, a roof deck must be smooth, straight, and free of irregularities such as significant humps or depressions before applying new roofing materials. If the roof deck is damaged or deteriorated, it must be replaced to ensure a suitable substrate for the new shingles.

The Roof Plywood’s Role in Roof Replacement

Roof plywood is essential for the structural integrity and support of a roof assembly. It serves as the substrate for the roof assembly, ensuring a smooth and straight surface for the application of new roofing materials. According to the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), a roofing contractor must ensure that a deck’s surface condition is suitable for the application of new roofing materials, including shingles. Damaged or deteriorated decking needs to be replaced before applying new roofing materials to meet the current standard for reroofing.

The Case of Gutkowski v. Oklahoma Farmers Union Mutual Insurance Company

In this landmark case, the Oklahoma Court of Appeals determined that a roof is a unified product comprised of all its component parts and materials, including sheathing (decking) and shingles. The court rejected the insurance company’s argument that the wood shingles were a separate and divisible roof from the asphalt shingle roof, and held that the cost of removing and replacing the wood shingles with plywood decking should be covered.

The Importance of Replacing Roof Plywood for Pre-Loss Condition Restoration

The Gutkowski case highlights the importance of considering roof plywood as part of the roof replacement process. Replacing damaged or deteriorated decking is crucial in restoring a roof to its pre-loss condition and ensuring the structural integrity and longevity of the new roofing materials. By adhering to industry standards set by the NRCA, homeowners can trust that their roof replacement will be done correctly and comprehensively.

When it comes to roof replacement, it’s essential to consider all components of the roofing system, including the roof plywood. By understanding the importance of roof decking in the restoration process and adhering to industry standards, homeowners can ensure their roof is restored to its pre-loss condition, providing lasting protection and peace of mind.

In summary, the roof plywood or sheathing is an essential component of the roof assembly, as defined by the International Residential Code (IRC) Chapter 9. Properly replacing the roof deck is crucial for restoring a damaged roof to its pre-loss condition and maintaining the structural integrity and performance of the roof system. By understanding the importance of each component in the roof assembly, homeowners can ensure that their roof replacement projects are completed according to industry standards and local building codes.
