What Happens to Your Roof With Hail Damage?

After a hail storm, your roof may be damaged. Some ways are obvious and some are a little less so. They also vary based on the different types of roofs.

Some of the obvious signs with shingle roofs is random dents, soft spots and felt showing. Some of the less obvious signs on shingle roofs are loss of granular texture.

Wooden shingles will show dents as well as surface splits

Roofs made from aluminum or copper will show dents the size of the actual piece of hail!

Concrete tiles can even be damaged by hail if the pieces are big enough and the wind speed is high enough.

Gutters can also be damaged by hail. You will be able to tell by the dents, punctures or even cracks.
