When a hail storm hits your home, it's the equivalent of a professional golfer driving thousands of golf balls at the roofing. That's how severe a hail storm can be on your shingles and other parts of the roof system (ie skylights, gutters, flashing, vent hoods, etc.). 

After a big storm, leaks need to be addressed and after a hail storm specifically, shingles need to be inspected to prevent water damage too. Hail damage can be hard to spot because the dents and damage can be hard to spot. The experts at Bone Dry Roofing work on roofing every day though and we see trends and issues in greater Greater Louisville and we put that local experience to work for you by showing you what we find and see.

We will thoroughly inspect your entire roof and look for any signs of roof hail damage. Our expert roofers have the experience to be able to suggest the appropriate roofing services, whether it's roof repair or roofing replacement. After a storm, we're the experts to call!

Hail Does Different Damage to Different Roofing Materials

hail damage in Kentucky

From one extreme to the other, roof hail damage can be just cosmetic damage or can even cause severe roof leaking.

Over the many, many years of experience after hail storms, roofing contractors and insurance inspectors have better documented how hail damages roofing. They found that roofing materials are damaged differently, depending on the  material type.

Roof hail damage can also vary greatly from one part of a house roof to another. This variation is due primarily to the wind that drives the hail. A glancing blow will do less damage than hail that impacts the roof at close to 90 degrees.

  • Hail damage to asphalt shingles: Shingles can have broken or cracked tabs, but the most common hail damage takes the form of crushed or dented areas where granules are forced into the shingle mat material or displaced entirely. Since granules protect the shingle from UV degradation, hail dents can result in shortened shingle life. This damage usually qualifies the homeowner for an insurance claim.
  • Hail damage to wood shingles: Wood shingles can crack from hail impacts. Cracking will be along the grain and can cause parts of shingles to break loose.
  • Hail damage to slate roofs: Hail impact can crack slates, although cracks tend to be more random than with wood shingles. Some slates may break loose from their fasteners and slide off the roof.

Fast Hail Damage Repairs Can Mean Less Damage

Placing a call immediately after a hail storm is a best practice that can save you money and give you peace-of-mind, so it doesn't get forgotten. Sometimes hail damage isn't immediately an issue, but you can always check with your insurance agent to see if hail damage warrants a repair or roof replacement.
