Experts agree hail damage can cause significant damage to your roof. Ignoring the damage caused to a roof after a hail storm will only lead to bigger problems down the road.
A hailstone can be the size of a pea and reach sizes close to a softball. Due to the fact that most hailstones do not have smooth edges, each one can impact the type of damage they cause.
There are some factors that affect the type and degree of damage that may be impacted by a hailstorm:
- Wind – Wind direction and speed can vary during a hailstorm. Changes in wind conditions can affect the location and severity of hail’s impact.
- Size and density – the size of the hailstones can affect the degree of damage, if any, to your property.
- Building materials – Different building materials absorb hail impacts in varied ways.
- Barriers – The position of neighboring structures and natural barrier, like tree cover, landscaping, fences or adjacent homes can reduce the ability of hail to cause damage to your home.
A property’s roof is the first line of defense against weather and other outside elements, but various building materials can take on severe damage during a storm.
