Different roofing materials are affected by hail in different ways
AND Construction and Roofing has experience in roof inspections. We have inspected after many hail storms and worked with insurance inspectors on how hail damage affects different roofing material types.
Hail damage can affect different sections of the roof. Wind is the main variation for the differences that drives the hail. A glancing blow from a large hail stone will do less damage than a smaller hail ball that impacts the roof straight on at close to 90 degrees.
- Asphalt shingles: Shingles can have broken or cracked tabs, but the most common hail damage takes the form of 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 can result in shortened shingle life. This damage usually qualifies the homeowner for an insurance claim.
- Wood shingles: Wood shingles can crack from hail impacts. Cracking will be along the grain and can cause parts of shingles to break loose.
- Slate roofs: Hail impact can crack slates, although cracks tend to be more random than with wood shingles. Some slates may break loose from their fasteners and slide off the roof.
