When Hail Damages Your Roof
When your roof is exposed to a major hail storm, it can do a great deal of damage to your shingles. It’s important to note that hail damage is not always immediately noticeable. Sometimes, your roof can have extensive shingle damage with no visible signs – but it can cause your shingles to be less effective and to age prematurely.
After a storm, many shingles may have indentations or fractures to the shingle’s surface. Since hail stones can vary in size or shape, there may not be a set pattern to the dents, but rather a wide variety of random dents. You can also check your storm drains for loose granules to see if the shingles were damaged.
The most common damages that happen during a hail storm are:
– Granule loss
– Cracks in shingles
– The fiberglass mat may now be exposed or fractured – this damage may be hidden
