Metal, tile, slate, and even wooden shake roofs can also be damaged by storm activity. Wind and hail combined tend to cause the greatest damage. Still, winter storms and melting and freezing can also escalate the damage caused by earlier hailstorms.
Signs of Hail Damage
Signs of roof storm damage may not be easily seen from the ground. The surface of the shingles may appear to have small holes or dents to metal surfaces. With lighter colored shingles, these bruises appear darker or black which exposes the fiberglass mat backing, when the granules have been knocked off the shingle leaving it exposed to UV rays and potential water intrusion.
Heavy deposits of shingle granules at downspouts or in gutters are another sign of roof storm damage. Getting an assesment for hail damage repair is important, as these damaged spots are all potential leaks waiting to happen.
