What Hail Damage Means For You

Hail damaged roofs and gutters can occur without being visible from the ground. Missing or broken shingles will have left your roof exposed not only to the elements, but during the storm if hail hit where your shingles were missing or weakened then further hail would have bruised your roofing system. When a roof’s deck is bruised then the integrity of thephoto of hail entire roofing system has been compromised.

Moreover, if the storm lasted more than a few minutes then the high winds driving the hail would have also harmed your roof by removing the protective granules to your shingles. Without these granules, the life and effectiveness of your roof will have been severely reduced. The granules protect the core of the shingle from long-term exposure to UV rays. The loss of those granules means quicker deterioration.

If the winds during the storm reached over 50 miles per hour then it may have lifted your shingles up, breaking their seals. Unsealed shingles will flap in the breeze on days with nicer weather and soon snap off altogether.
