Your roof is your home’s first line of defense against all Mother Nature may have in store. And every homeowner should feel confident that their roof is capable of handling various weather conditions, such as rough winds, pouring rain, and piling snow. And one weather condition that homeowners may not initially consider, but should be aware of, is hail.
Not all hail can cause roof damage. Small fragments of ice may pelt your roof but cause little to no harm. However, if a stronger hailstorm comes through your area, it can cause damage to your roof.
Hail That Can be a Cause for Concern
Your roof serves as your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Therefore, having a strong and dependable roof in place is critical. However, even a hard-wearing roof can fall victim to a difficult hailstorm.
Hail that is around 1 inch in diameter, or bigger, can cause damage to your roof and warrant an insurance claim. When hail of this size comes in contact with your roof, particularly if your roof is made up of asphalt shingles, it can leave dents and dings. The impact of hail can also cause roof shingles to split. These compromised areas may negatively impact the structural integrity of your roof by creating weak spots that could deteriorate with time.
