Signs of a hail damaged roof are not visible from the ground the majority of the time. This is one reason many homeowners do not have their roofs looked at after an extreme weather event. Hail damage can leave severe damage on your roof and other areas of your home’s exterior. Many homeowners are not aware of the consequences of ignoring hail damage.
Some insurance companies require homeowners to file a claim within a certain time period, regardless of whether they were or were not aware of the damage. Damage from weather extremes and strong winds becomes more visible over time. A qualified roof inspector is able to determine how long your roof has withstood the damage. When not discovered early, leaks in your roof can results in mold growth, damages to the ceiling and walls and even electrical issues.
Hailstones can loosen the protective granules adhered on your asphalt roof. You roof is then exposed to harmful ultraviolet light from the sun when these granules are missing. Long term exposure to UV light rays can cause the material to become weak, brittle and vulnerable to leaks. An accumulation of granules in your gutters requires immediate attention from a roofing professional.
