DO ANY OF THESE PICTURES LOOK FAMILIAR?
What should you expect to see around you home after a major hailstorm? So many times homeowners let out a sigh a of relief as their home and vehicles look untouched. However, it is very possible that “wishful thinking” may be involved ..... there just may be underlying damage on the roof, siding, windows, or gutters. Many times damage caused by hail is hard to see at first glance. Sometimes hail damage is not visible to the naked eye, but unless dealt with will leave long term damage and additional costs to you personally instead of being taken care of by your insurance company. What you don't see could very possible hurt you! Southern Indiana can have hail from as early as April or as late as mid-September.
Unless you have a metal roof on your home or business, you probably won’t see much in the way of damage from a hailstorm. However, that doesn’t mean that the roof is undamaged. You see, hail is extremely destructive. Consider for a moment that hail can get as large as 4.5” in diameter, depending on the severity of the storm. Also, most hail travels around 60 to 80 MPH. You can only imagine what happens when the hail meets your roof?
Roofs covered in shingles are most likely to hide damage from hail. The hail actually can chip away at the rock/pebbles on the shingles and expose the asphalt underneath. When this happens, the asphalt breaks down faster and can create small leaks. Of course, leaks can lead to wood rot, moldy insulation, mold on decking and even flooding if not corrected in a timely manner. What’s worse is that a home or business owner won’t know that there is damage to their roof unless they have an inspection done.
It’s generally easier to see hail roof damage on metal roofs as they tend to bend/divot after being struck by hail. For most, the damage is merely cosmetic; however, there are cases where metal roofing still needs to be inspected after a hailstorm.
