Hail damage to roof shingles

According to the National Weather Service, when a thunderstorm reaches severe limits, it has wind speeds of 58 mph and hail at least 1 inch in diameter. It is easy to see how much damage one of these storms can cause. However, the damage to your roof shingles varies from home to home and differs with the material used. With 25 years of experience, our professionals are expertly equipped to identify hail damage in all roof types.

Asphalt Shingles – The most common way roof shingles are damaged by hail is granule loss. The impact from the hail pushes the granule into the mat material or remove it entirely. This will shorten the lifespan of your shingles, leaving the exposed to UV degradation

Wood Shingles – When hail hits wood shingles it can crack and split the shingles along the grain causing pieces of your shingles to break off. These splits have sharp corners and edges, with no deterioration at the edges, and are typically brown/orange in color.  

Slate Roofs – When hail hits wood shingles it can crack and split the shingles along the grain causing pieces of your shingles to break off. These splits have sharp corners and edges, with no deterioration at the edges, and are typically brown/orange in color.
