If you’ve had hail in your area, to determine if the shingles have been damaged a close inspection of the shingles has to be made from the roof. Usually you cannot tell from the ground.
Whenever analyzing a roof for hail damage, it is important to differentiate between damage caused by hail and damage caused by natural weathering. Additionally, manufacturing defects, damage during construction and/or damage occurring during transportation can often look much like hail damage.
Damage to asphalt shingles from hailstones is typically one of two types:
1. Rupturing of the reinforcing mat,
2. Loss of granules that exposes the underlying bitumen.
