Types of Hail Damage to Look for While Inspecting a Roof

Did the recent hail storms hurt your roof? Do you want to inspect it? Would you like to learn about the different types of hail damage to look for while inspecting a roof?

Your roof needs to be fixed immediately if you notice any major or minor damage after a hail storm. So today we are going to show you how to spot hail damage.

Here are the types of hail damage to look for while inspecting a roof…

1. Cracks:

Hail damage can sometimes cause cracks on your roof. Some of these are very deep and can easily be noticed because they allow rain water to pass through which leads to further damage of the roof and other parts of the house. Some cracks might not be deep enough to let water leak through. But you should get them fixed anyway as you never know when they could expand.

2. Holes:

Holes like cracks can either be severe or harmless. But you need to get them fixed whether they are potent or not.

3. Bruises:

Bruises are a minor type of damage. You can usually notice them by the missing pieces of asphalt on the roof. Sometimes these bruises might not be visible to the naked eye so you might need to run your hand over it to check for damage. If you feel something bumpy and rough you need to get this minor damage fixed.

Climbing the roof and looking for damage is a tiring and risky task. Therefore before you do this by yourself or getting a roofing company to help you out, you need to look for signs of hail damage that don’t require you to climb the roof. So after a hail storm walk around your house and neighbourhood and look for hail damage on the neighbouring landscape, in your garden, on your windows, or on other things like pipes and gutters. It is very likely that if these places or things are damaged your roof will be too.

How well your roof survives a hail storm will depend upon how well it is laid or fixed so get a good roofing company to fix it.
