Hail is one of the leading causes of roof damage in the spring and fall. It is a major threat to the integrity of your roof and the longevity of it. The holes and dings created by hail can cause problems right away if they’re severe enough, but sometimes, they can go undetected for the next few storms until the true extent of the damage is realized. Performing a thorough inspection after a hail storm and knowing what to do after storm damage does occur, can help you avoid the common pitfalls that come along with hail roof damage.
As well there are many other factors in a hail storm that can damage your roof. Things like; Different Size and density of hail. – The size of the hailstones can affect the degree of damage, if any, to your property. A hailstone can be as small as a pea, or as large as a softball. Most hailstones do not have smooth edges, which can impact the type of damage they cause.
Make sure to look around the barriers.
The position of neighboring (barriers) structures and natural barriers, like tree cover, landscaping, fences or adjacent homes can reduce the ability of hail to cause damage
Look at Building materials – Building materials absorb hail impacts differently. For example, small bits of pea sized hail can cause dings in aluminum siding, gutters or asphalt shingles, whereas it can crack vinyl siding or wood shakes. Alternatively, bigger, softball-sized hailstones can be dense enough and strong enough to actually puncture a roof. As well, the age and condition of a roof could affect the degree of damage.
Wind – During a hailstorm, wind direction and wind speed can vary. Changes in wind conditions can affect the location and severity of hail impacts leading to leaks in many parts of your roof.
