In addition, consumers need to understand what they are dealing with when it comes down to what actual roof hail damage is, what it can do to shingles, what repair service involves, and who can best repair damages.
Hail damages to a roof consists of assessing the various damages that can and do occur. Hail can hit almost any area of a roof as well as any other covering or other property surrounding a structure, and factors are in play when it comes to the kind and degree of damage. Varying circumstances include:
Hail is affected by wind and speed variables that can determine the area where hail hits and the seriousness of its impact.
The size of hailstones affects the amount of damage done to a roof, as hail can run the gamut from the size of a pea to a softball and with hailstones lacking in smooth edges, any size can cause damage to a roof.
When it comes to the effects of hail on various structural materials, every type of material is impacted by hail in varying ways, and the age of materials and a roof’s condition can also be affected by the degree of damage.
Shingle types suffer hail damage in varying ways. Asphalt shingles can sustain cracked or broken tabs or dented, dinged and crushed areas where black spots may appear, plus the shingle’s granules can be entirely removed or displaced within the underneath shingle materials, which leaves a shiny appearance on what remains. With the loss of granules, a shingle loses its sun protection plus its usability.
Wood shingles damaged by hail can crack or split leaving a brownish orange coloration along with marks where hail has impacted them. The corners and edges of the shingles may also be sharp or there may be splits with little corner or edge deterioration. Splits along the grain of the wood can cause them to separate and break away from a roof, and similar problems can happen with slate shingles, as they can suffer the same fate with cracks that are more scattered, but slate shingles can also break loose and slide away from a roof.
Determining the extent of hail damage to a roof may be difficult and a repair service can be of help in identifying the issues associated with hail damage. Expert hail service repair technicians will inspect the roof and look for the signs of hail damage from the top of the roof and will also feel for dents in the shingles and check the back of the shingles for any inconsistencies and loss of granules.
If heavy hail damage has occurred from large sized hail, a recommendation for partial or full roof replacement will probably be suggested. Roof inspections for hail damage are necessary if claims for damage are filed with an insurance provider.
