Signs of Hail Damage on Your Roof

Posted: by & filed under Roofing

Hail occurring at the end of winter, or the beginning of spring is likely to cause significant damage to your roof. You may be lucky enough if your shingles didn’t get damaged from it, and you do not have to worry about fixing them. But what if the hailstorm damages your roof?

You must take immediate action before it gets worse. Even minor damage can quickly become a major problem.

Below are some of the ways hail can damage your roof and how professionals can help you in this regard!

Shingle Damage

The intensity of the damage caused to your shingles depends on the size of the hailstones. You’re lucky if the hailstones are small enough, leaving only scratches. However, if they are large, the chances are that they will crack your shingles. Sometimes, the damage reaches the underlayment, loosening or tearing the shingles completely.

Leaks and Water Damage

A roof damaged by hail can quickly become a problem for your home’s waterproofing. Even if, at first glance, the damage seems insignificant, it can cause greater damage if it is not repaired in time. This is particularly the case with water leaks, which are responsible for many problems (persistent humidity, mold, rotting of frames and wooden structures, etc.).

Other Damages

The statistics show that one or more damaging hail events affect millions of properties, causing billions of damages every year. The damage to your roof can be more than just surface-level scratching and denting. In worst cases, it can completely rip off the shingles, break windows, and strip away insulation, causing thousands of property damage.
