How do I know if my roof has storm damage?


In order to determine if your roof has storm damage, a thorough inspection is required.  While wind damage may be easy to spot in the form of missing shingles, hail damage requires a roof-walk inspection of the entire roof surface.  Hail damage is rarely seen from the ground, unless soft-ball sized hail has affected the area.  This is a rare occurrence. Much smaller sized hail can still damage the shingles by knocking the granulars off and leaving the asphalt below exposed directly to UV rays.  The granulars protect the shingle from UV rays, which means their absence can lead to premature shingle deterioriation.  Metal roofs can also be affected, but require large sized hail.  Metal roof damage comes more in the form of cosmetic damage.
