Hail Damage to Roofing

Hail Damage to Roofing Spotless and Seamless Exteriors

When a hail storm slams your neighborhood, the damage to your roof can vary greatly. Knowing how to identify damage can save you hassle and money down the line.

Damage Variables

Wind speed and direction can change the severity and location of hail impacts. Larger hail creates more damage and most hailstones are not perfectly round, making different impacts to the surface. Trees, buildings, or other neighboring structures act as natural barriers from hail. They can cause more damage in dangerous storms, such as when a tree falls on your house.

Materials absorb hail differently. Hail can dent asphalt roofing, gutters, and aluminum siding.  If you are hit with softball sized hail, the density can be strong enough to puncture a roof. Vinyl or wood shakes can crack, while metal roofing is tough and highly resistant to hail damage. Contact the Minneapolis roofing specialists at Spotless & Seamless Exteriors to learn more about the different kinds of roofing materials.

Age or Hail Damage?

Wear and tear can be mistaken as hail damage. Exposure to sun and weather over time can make asphalt shingles brittle and aged in appearance. Blistering, cracking, flaking, and algae are also signs of age. However, hail damage can be unmistakable if there are black, shiny, or soft spots on asphalt shingles. Wood shingles will have random damage with cracks that are orange/brown in color, sharp, and have no deterioration. Lastly, checking if your vents, gutters, siding, or air conditioner have dents too can signify claimable damage.

If you believe that your house has been damaged by hail, contact Spotless & Seamless Exteriors, Twin Cities roofing contractor, for a free roof inspection. You can make a claim with your insurance rep or agent as soon as you know there is hail damage. Any neglected damage from earlier storms or aging is noticeable and not covered by insurance. Over time, damaged shingles can deteriorate from the sun and rain. Shingle debris can get caught in your gutters and exposed areas are susceptible to leaks, wind damage, and mold.

It’s a large investment to replace or repair a roof but protecting the value of your home is important.  If your roof shows signs of serious aging or hail damage, we can help.

You can count on our experts at Spotless & Seamless Exteriors to provide fast, high quality, and personalized service to complete your Minnesota roofing repair on time.
