Here are some damages we look for when inspecting your asphalt roof:

  • Bruising of the Asphalt Shingle: This is when the force of impact from the hail is significant enough to penetrate and shatter the fiberglass of the shingle. If you touch the area of impact, it’s soft and there will be lost of granules on the shingle. Overtime if the damaged will cause leaks as the damaged shingles begins to degrade quickly overtime .
  • Collateral Hail Damage: Dings and dents around chimney, vents, and other pipes on top of your roof helps us determine the size of the hail storm. The flashing around the areas of your chimney, vents and pipes could have been cracked by hail. These cracks allow water to slip through and cause leakage. It’s important to have your local professional roofer check these areas. 
Often times hail damage are hard to see to the untrained eyes. Even the smallest damages can eventually brew into something that’ll drive up repair costs and huge unplanned expenses.
