Signs of Hail Damage Vary with Material

Damaging storms sweep across the midwest every year. Depending on the type of material on your roof, signs of damage will vary. One thing that roofs have in common are metal accessories, such as vents and valleys. These are a great starting point for checking for roof hail damage. Dents and dings in these areas are easy to spot, and are a telling sign of damage. Here are helpful signs to look for on your specific roofing material:

  • Asphalt – On an asphalt roof, hail damage can be seen by missing granules. When hailstones are large enough to cause damage, granules are knocked off of shingles. More obvious signs include the shingles blown off of your roof, and cracked shingles.
  • Metal – Hail damage on a metal roof will look much the same as on metal accessories, as described above. Dings and dents in metal panels prove that hail has left its unsightly mark, compromising your roofing system.
  • Wood – Wood shake shingles split when they are hit by hail stones of significant size. While pea-size hail rarely leaves enough damage to concern yourself over, hailstones that are 3/4″ or larger in diameter warrant a close inspection of your roof. This size of stone will cause splits or punctures in a wooden shake shingle. Further, because wooden roof materials often develop organic growth, hail damage can be seen when moss and surface growth has been wiped away by the impact.

Sometimes roof hail damage is discovered a while after the storm has rolled in and out. Most insurance companies do allow a twelve-month window from when a storm hits to file a hail claim. If you think your roof has been compromised by a recent hail storm, check your neighborhood on our interactive map for significant hail instances in the past twelve months.
