Hail damage can look like punctures, tears, and fractures on an asphalt shingle. Displacement of granules off your shingles can expose parts of our roof to damaging sunrays. The loss of granules leaves these areas of the roof exposed to UV light degradation.
How can you determine if your roof needs some TLC? One of the most common signs is experiencing leaks. Rotting wood and water stains can be indicators of a leak on your roof. In some cases, leaks can occur without being visible or noticeable. For this reason, we encourage homeowners to do schedule an inspection once a year. Our professionals are trained to identify areas that may not be noticeable from the ground.
Water leaks should be assessed as quickly as possible. If not addressed in a timely manner, leaks can cause further damage to the interior of the walls including wood and inside panels.
If your home has asphalt shingles you may notice broken shingles, missing shingles or shingles curling at the tips. Weather storms are usually to blame for this type of wind damage.
Hail storms can cause round "punctures" on your shingles. This is known as displacement. Displacement occurs when the granules are displaced from the impact of hail.
Metal roofs are amongst the toughest, however they are not 100 % indistructable. Hail can dent and even puncture a metal roof depending on hail size.
Hail damage can also be determined by the roof deck installed beneath your metal roof. Metal roofs lacking proper roof deck are more prone to denting and on occasion punctures from hail.
Damaged shingles can also look worn down because of missing granules. Without proper coverage of granules a shingle looses its resistance to outside elements.
