Hail storms, whether they’re from summer thunderstorms or harsh winter storms, can have strong effects on your roof. After all, all those small, and sometimes not so small, pellets of ice are consistently hitting your roof at high speeds. While your roof is designed to protect you, even a heavy hail storm can strongly damage your roof. The severity of the hail damage also is going to depend on the material that your roof is made out of. These materials may be:

  • Asphalt and Wood Shingle Roofing

  • Metal Roofing

  • Tile, Clay, and Concrete Roofing

Many times, the damage from hail will consist of either small or large dents in the structure of your roof or excess water damage. Water damage can occur if your gutters aren’t draining the water properly. Sitting water can pool up and easily dissolve the materials of your roof, which may cause it to collapse over time. After the storm has passed, check your roof for signs of damage and make sure that the melted water has somewhere to drain. If you’re unsure of this, connect with our roofing experts. We will be able to safely and easily evaluate your roof and check for signs of hail damage.
