Many homeowners will dismiss a minor hailstorm as simple unpleasantness. When it comes to your roof, however, these events can inflict measurable damage. As the years pass and more hailstorms occur, this damage accumulates to significant wear on your roof. For more significant hailstorms, the kind that inflict visible damage to your car, for example, you will want to call for an inspection right away. Repairs left undone on a hail-damaged roof can evolve into costly situations.
Any hailstorm has the potential to harm a roof, and certain factors will exacerbate the damage. For example, high winds can increase the speed of impact, so that even small pieces of hail hit hard. The size of hail presents an obvious differential, as does the length of the storm. The age of your roof also matters. Older roofs have generally lost more of their protective granules, and so cannot resist hail as effectively. If you choose to inspect your own roof for signs of hail damage, a few obvious signs can alert you to the need for repairs.
Signs You Have Hail Damage:
• Random patterns of wear around the roof.
• Exposure of roofing felt and significant loss of granules.
• Black spots that indicate impacts on asphalt shingles.
• Areas that feel soft or infirm.
