How hail damages your roof

Roofing Hail Damage

Hail damages your roof differently than rain, wind, or snow. It also varies in how it affects different roofing materials. Other factors, like the angle at your roof slopes, can also affect the type and extent of damage from hail.

If you have asphalt shingles, the most common type of residential shingles, hail can crush or dent your roof. In addition, shingles can break, and tabs can crack. Still, hail is more likely to harm the granules on your roof, either driving them deep into the shingle mat material or removing them entirely. Because granules shield your asphalt shingles from sun damage and UV degradation, hail damage to granules can significantly shorten the lifespan of your shingles.

If you have wood shingles on your home, your roof is especially susceptible to cracked shingles. Hail will split your wood shingles along the grain. This often leads to some shingles detaching entirely from your roof.

Slate roofs can also be damaged by hail. When it hits the slate, the slate can randomly crack and potentially slide off of your roof. It is important to reach out to your insurance company to see what coverage you have.
