What is hail damage to my roof?

Hail damage is the result of precipitation consisting of smooth or irregularly shaped lumps of ice. The effects of hail damage on your roof vary based on several factors such as: the size and intensity of the hailstorm, the age of the roof, roof steepness, and components installed on the roof to mention only a few variables. Getting a storm damage roof inspection will tell you what kinds of roof or gutter repairs you might need and document any damage to help you with your insurance assessment.

Commonly, hailstorm damage to roof shingles consists of somewhat circular black spots of missing shingle granulates, which results in premature shingle wear as the black matting of the shingle is now exposed to the elements. Large enough hail has the potential to crack and cause dents and punctures to the shingles.

Although, the roof is the most vulnerable component of a building during any storm, additional signs of hail damage to your roof include dents to the gutters and downspouts, dings on roof flashings and garage doors, dents on aluminum siding, and cracks on vinyl siding to mention a few.

Not all damage from hail storms is claim worthy damage. In essence, it is important for your professional roofer to conduct an honest, thorough roof and gutter inspection before an insurance claim is made. Filing an unnecessary claim on your home can have unwanted effects such as missing out on discounts from your insurance company or even rate increases.
