Hail can wreak havoc on your home’s roof, siding and air conditioning units. After a hail storm, it is important that you look for any roof damage, because it can leave your home vulnerable to leaks and other problems. In fact, hail can dent or otherwise damage your roof vents and exhaust caps as well as fracturing roofing shingles. Your roof has a greater chance of suffering damage with large hail, such as golf-ball sized or larger, but smaller pellets can still be detrimental. If you find signs of damage, it may be best to call a professional for hail damaged roof repair.
A newer roof is typically more durable and able to withstand hail damage as compared to older shingles. Dry and weathered shingles can leave you in urgent need of hail damaged roof repair once the storm has passed. The amount of damage is typically rated in degrees that range from bruising to the fracturing of underlayment. The damage your shingles suffer may also vary based on how sturdy and durable the substrate beneath is. Solid decking will hold up better to the impact.
Depending on the way your roof is shaped, you may find that one side has taken the brunt of the damage. When it comes to assessing damage after the storm, you may find that it is in your best interest to call a hail damaged roof contractor who specializes in not only identifying hail damage of varying degrees, but can also give you expert advice about the needed repairs. If you have to install a new roof, ask about the shingle rating in advance. A Class 4 rating indicates the highest resistance to hail damage.
