Hail storms compromise the stability of your home and can quickly turn roof damage (skylights, gutters, vent hoods, etc.) into house leaks that lead to tens of thousands of dollars in damage to the structural integrity of your home. That’s why it's critical to call a certified roofing specialist to assess the integrity of your roof, soon after a hail storm hits.
Herbert Roofing will thoroughly inspect your roof and quickly pinpoint roof hail damage at the source. Our specialists are trained at quickly finding problems and implementing quality and affordable roof repair and roofing replacement solutions.
Hail storms impact different roofing materials in unique ways
Roof hail damage widely varies from one part of your roof to another. That's because hail impacts your home at different angles and speeds. So, a direct hit by a large hailstone traveling 120 mph that is accompanied by strong winds will do more damage than a glancing blow from a smaller hailstone.
- Hail damage to asphalt shingles: The most common hail damage experienced by asphalt shingles are crushed or dented areas where granules are forced into the shingle mat material or displaced entirely. Since granules protect the shingle from UV degradation, hail dents ultimately result in shortened shingle life.
- Hail damage to wood shingles: Hailstorms crack wood shingles. Usually, these cracks occur along the grain and can cause parts of the shingle to break loose.
- Hail damage to slate roofs: Hailstorms easily crack slate roofs. Many times damaged slate tiles break upon impact and slide off the roof.
Quick response times make all the difference
Strong winds that occur during hail storms often result in blow-off damage that needs to be repaired immediately.
