Hail causes significant damage to our homes, cars and landscaping. Hail is made of ice and dirt, which, in combination with high winds slams hail into our homes with forces up to 110 mph wreaking havoc on our roofing, siding and windows.
Hail is irregularly shaped pellets of ice too heavy for the wind and clouds. Hail size ranges from ¼” to grapefruit size and has the capability to leave holes in the protective covering of your roof which is the granular surface. It is said that hail, marble-size or larger is capable of causing damage. Asphalt shingles can lose granules during a hail storm, leading to premature deterioration. Hail damage to roofs often goes unnoticed until further structural damage is seen, such as leaks or cracks.
Preventing a storm is impossible. The best thing you can do after a storm is have your roof inspected by a licensed contractor.
