How to Tell If Your Roof Has Hail Damage
If you have ever woken up to hail damage on your car and windows, you might wonder how badly the hail can also damage your roof. Well, depending on the size of the hail, hail can significantly damage your property.
Hail damage can reduce the lifespan of your roof, which can be very costly. However, regular maintenance and knowing what your roof will look like after a hail storm may help you avoid potential damages.
Dents On Your Property
If the hail is large, you'll probably be able to spot the dents on your shingles. However, climbing on your roof to check for dents can be dangerous. So, you should check other places for hail damage, like dings/dents on your sidings, deck, gutters, and roof vents.
Signs of Leaks
Leaks are never a good sign. If you start noticing water leaks from your roof right after a hail storm, it can be a big sign of roof damage.
You don't want your roof to be damaged beyond repair. So make sure to hire a professional for any repairs and have a look at your roof after a bad hail storm.
Scattered Asphalt Granules
If you have a roof with scattered asphalt granules, this could be a sign of hail damage on your roof. Granules both around your roof and gutters can be a cause for concern.
Other Missing Roofing Materials
Hail will likely leave dents and cracks on your roof, but a hail storm can also displace many outer parts of your roof. Both roof tiles and shingles can be displaced out of their original positions.
Make sure to take a look around your roof for missing spots and on the ground as well for loose tiles.
