How to Inspect Your Roof for Hail Damage
As we previously stated, hail can do some pretty serious damage to your roof when it’s the right size and velocity. The damage your roof suffers is also contingent on a number of other factors, like the thickness of your shingles, how old they are, what they’re made of, etc. Some types of materials are more resistant to damage than others, but for the most part, asphalt is the most vulnerable out of all the shingles, because they are softer.
Thicker asphalt shingles tend to resist hail damage more than thinner asphalt shingles, which are more prone to get torn up and cracked when they get hit..This next paragraph will tell you exactly how to identify hail damage, so that you can get it fixed as soon as possible after you notice it, and hopefully avoid any costly problems like roof leaks, mold and mildew, and even structural damage later on down the road…
There are generally two types of hail damage:
Rupturing – Rupturing occurs when the ply or part of the roof covering is removed by the hail. This type of damage requires repair immediately, because it generally affects the shingle’s water shedding ability, This leaves a high probability of water entering the structure through the roofing membrane’s fasteners. If you think you have spotted rupturing after a hail storm, call our hail damage repair team immediately at1-651-703-2336
Loss of Granules – A loss of granules is the second type of hail damage, and its easy to notice because it exposes the underlying layer of bitumen. These bruises pose a problem because they are unsightly, and they can also leak.
