Information on Hail/Wind Damage
How does Hail impact your Roof?
Hail can cause various types of damage to your roof and just your home in general. This damage is often unseen or very hard to notice, it takes a great deal of training to be able to identify hail damage.
- Granule Loss: Hail impact removes protective granules sometimes leaving the asphalt surfaces of the shingle directly exposed to elements. Loss of granules generally happen directly after a storm or periodically over time through weathering of these effected areas may because more visible, by then it's to late.
- Cracks in Shingle: A crack can be microscopic but can let serious amounts of elements penetrate the outside layer of your roof. Cracks generally radiate outwards and grow in size over time & can lead to...
- Cracked Fiberglass Mat: A cracked Fiberglass mat can leave your roof fully exposed, leaving the asphalt vulnerable to constant degradation. Over time these types of damages can cause larger leaks, root, mold, as well as structural problems in some extreme cases.
- Loose seal strip: Hail can sometimes hit the seal strip and loosen the seal, making your shingles vulnerable to blow off. Most of the time this occurs with wind that accompanies a hail event. In some cases even a Wind storm can cause your shingles to become creases and this is not detectable from the ground. This actually will give you all of the previously mentioned issues above on a larger scale.
Hail can also impact your home hitting your siding. Many older homes are clad in metal (aluminum) which is very susceptible to being dented, actually creating small spacing between the panels for water to penetrate during wind driven rain. Even vinyl, asbestos & wood shakes may be brittle and again can easily be damaged when struck by hail. Cracks may impact the weatherproofing of your home and may make your home vulnerable to damage, leaking or even blow off in windstorms.
