How Hail Can Damage Your Shingle Roof

Hail can damage a shingle roof in several ways. This can include:

  1. Bruises
  2. Deep Indentations
  3. Punctures
  4. Tears
  5. Broken Edges
  6. Granulation Loss

Bruises are most typical and can be spotted because of missing granules from the impact area. Sometimes there is so much granulation loss at impact site that the black asphalt can be seen on the shingle.

If you suspect you have hail damage to your roof, or you are not sure, reach out to a licensed, certified roofing contractor immediately.
