How I do I know if I have hail damage to my roof? Can I tell from the ground?

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.
