How Hail Causes Roof Damage

High winds and hail, pieces of ice falling from the sky like rain, can weaken your roof and cause damage to your shingles or tiles. Whether the elements break your roof's tiles or cause shingles to fly away, these damages need to be corrected. 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 pushes the granules into the mat material or removes them entirely. This will shorten the lifespan of your shingles, leaving them exposed to potential UV degradation.
  • Wood Shingles - When hail hits wood shingles, they can crack and split along the grain, causing pieces to break off. These splits have sharp corners and edges that can cause damage in other areas of your roof as well.
  • Slate Roofs - When hail hits slate tiles, they can be punctured or break entirely and will need to be replaced so your roof remains safe.
