A severe hail storm can devastate roof shingles and other roof elements (skylights, gutters, vent hoods, etc.).
After a damaging storm, your first roofing concern is whether or not you have a leak that might damage your home’s interior.

Our years of experience in roof inspections has taught our roofing contractors about how hail damage affects different roofing materials.
Due to the wind that drives the hail, roof hail damage can vary greatly from one part of a roof to another. A glancing blow will do less damage than hail that impacts the roof at close to 90 degrees.
Hail damage to asphalt shingles: Shingles can have broken or cracked tabs, but the most common hail damage takes the form of crushed or dented areas where granules are forced into the shingle mat material or displaced entirely. Since granules protect the shingle from UV degradation, hail dents can result in shortened shingle life.
Hail damage to wood shingles: Wood shingles can crack from hail impacts. Cracking will be along the grain and can cause parts of shingles to break loose.
Hail damage to slate roofs: Hail impact can crack slates, although cracks tend to be more random than with wood shingles. Some slates may break loose from their fasteners and slide off the roof.
Hailstorms and their high winds can cause blow-off damage that should be repaired right away. Hail-damaged roof shingles may not cause a problem for months or years, but it’s wise to call Armor Shield Exteriors as soon as possible to see if the damage merits roof repair or roofing replacement.
