A hail storm can wreak havoc on your home and roof. It’s important to take proper care if you even suspect that you have hail damage to your roof.
Conduct a visual inspection of your roof to look for hail damage. Look for any loose or missing shingles, discoloration or wood exposure. Hail damage can often be difficult to see from the ground. Consider getting a local roofing expert to do an inspection.
Dents in shingles can be very difficult to spot from the ground, but if you have metal gutters, fascia or roof flashing, you and spot dents and dings easier. Hail from storms can cause granules to come lose and will trickle down your gutters. Look at the bottom of your down spouts to see if granules lay at the bottom.
Loss of granules from a shingle can affect the performance of shingles by allowing UV light to degrade the shingles and create a higher risk of having a roof leak in the future.
Once you’ve done a visual inspection or hired a professional, you’ll be able to determine if you have hail damage and to what extent the hail storm has caused.
If you have hail damage to your roof, it’s important to get it fixed quickly. Water and moisture can seep through cracks and pass through your roofing materials and cause major damage to your home.
