Hail damage can be easily overlooked by the naked eye, but can cause some serious damage to your roof. Hail hits your roof causing your shingles to loose granules. Hail, if large enough, can also damage roof vents. The roofing materials that were damaged by hail, if left un-repaired, can lead to bigger issues and may eventually cause leaks. Hail can be anywhere from pea size to baseball size, so the extent of damage will vary with each storm. If you have a hail storm in your area, you should contact a quality roofing contractor to inspect your roof to determine the damage.
Hail damage is a problem that could get really expensive if ignored and since it is often covered under your homeowners insurance, does not need to be put off. You should call a qualified roofing company to inspect your roof to determine the extent of damage. After the inspection is complete and you receive an estimate for the work to be done, you can decide if you should contact your insurance company to file a claim.
