Visual Inspection

After a hailstorm, conduct a thorough visual inspection of your roof. Look for:

  • Dents and Dings: Hailstones can leave noticeable dents on shingles, especially if they are made of softer materials like asphalt.
  • Cracked or Missing Shingles: Check for any cracked shingles or areas where shingles are missing. Hail impact can cause significant damage, leading to cracks or dislodging shingles completely.
  • Granule Loss: Asphalt shingles have granules that protect them from UV rays and increase their durability. Hail impact can knock these granules loose, leading to bald spots on your shingles.

Check Your Gutters and Downspouts

Inspect your gutters and downspouts for signs of hail damage. Hailstones can cause dents and dings in metal gutters, and granules from damaged shingles often collect in gutters. Excessive granules can indicate significant roof damage.

Inspect Your Attic

Look inside your attic for signs of leaks or water damage. If hail has compromised your roof, you might see water stains, damp insulation, or even puddles. Addressing these issues quickly can prevent further damage to your home’s interior.

Professional Roof Inspection

While you can spot some signs of hail damage yourself, a professional inspection is essential for a thorough assessment.

Why Timely Detection Matters

Spotting hail damage early is crucial for several reasons:

  • Insurance Claims: Timely documentation of hail damage is essential for filing successful insurance claims. Delayed detection can complicate the claims process.
