Hail can damage your shingles like in the photo above. You will notice spots where hail has caused the surface of the shingle to be removed. In severe cases the hail can penetrate the shingle causing a leak into the attic below.
Hail Damage is oftentimes very difficult to see from the ground. Stay Dry General Contractor’s representatives are all trained to inspect a home for hail damage on roofs, gutters, windows, and siding. Countless times our representatives find damages that are missed by both homeowners and insurance adjusters.
Signs of hail damage
Although difficult to see from the ground, there are definitely some tell-tale signs a homeowner can look for as hail damage. We have found damage to roofs from hail as small as pea sized and damage to roofs on the other end of the spectrum from hail the size of softballs. The first signs a homeowner can look for when looking at damages is an abnormal amount of granulation loss around valley pour areas, gutter downspouts, and in gutters. Although some granulation loss is normal on roofs, hail causes this problem to accelerate. Hail, in most instances, does not cause roofs to leak immediately (unless it is golf ball size or bigger). Instead hail causes your roof to age at an accelerated rate. Hail also voids most manufacturers shingle warranties, leaving homeowners vulnerable to future financial losses.
What do I do after a Hail Storm?
Since hail damage is very difficult to gauge from the ground, we recommend calling a reputable Tri-State Roofing company, like Stay Dry General Contractor, to come out and inspect your home after a hail storm. We offer this service to homeowners free following a storm. Our inspectors will inspect your roof much like an insurance adjuster and let you know if in our opinion your roof warrants contacting your insurance company to file a claim.

High winds can damage your shingles by folding them back. Normally the shingle will lay flat on top of the one below and stick to it with a thin layer of tar. Once the wind blows it back and folds it over, it breaks the bond. As you can see these shingles have been folded back, if the wind blows them back and forth a few times, it will blow them right off. This is what causes shingles to be missing after a storm.
Wind damage may not always be visible from the ground. Oftentimes, what appears to the homeowner from the ground as minor damage such as one or two shingles missing, compounds into total roof damage down the road? It is very important to have a qualified roofing professional inspect your home after any major windstorm to assess damage.
Signs of Wind Damage
Wind damage ranges from missing shingles which can be seen from the ground to lifted shingles with broken glue seals. Asphalt shingles adhere to one another utilizing a strip of adhesive called a glue strip or sealant strip. When High winds break this seal, debris and dirt are blown into this glue area. This is like taking a piece of tape, running it along the floor, then turning around and trying to stick it to the wall, only having it fall back to the ground. These shingles will often not re-seal.
What to do After a Wind Storm
After a wind storm, it is important to have a qualified roofing contractor perform a thorough roof inspection to determine the amount of damage caused to your residence. If the damage is severe and numerous interior leaks have resulted due to missing or loose shingles, it is important to mitigate interior damages and have your home protected with a temporary cover-up. Stay Dry General Contractor offers emergency tarping and cover up services and can also inspect the entire roof for latent damage at the same time. Feel free to give us a call and schedule your wind damage inspection appointment.
