5 Hail Damage Signs and When to Request Professional Storm Damage Restoration

Any hail that is 1/4" in diameter is sure to cause some roof damage. The larger the hail, the more severe the damage. Here are five signs of hail damage that, if left unchecked, could lead to even more costly repairs. If your home presents one or more of these signs, call a trusted storm damage restoration company to have the roof inspected and repaired.

  1. Soft Spots on Shingles. Soft or bald spots on shingles are indicators of roof damage after a hail storm. Check these spots for dampness, as that suggests water has started to soak into the roof.
  2. Dented or Cracked Shingles. Dented or cracked shingles are a sign of more severe damage. At this point, water can seep into the home's sub-roofing and start to cause structural damage and the formation of mold.
  3. Dented Gutters. Hail damage to gutters appears as dings and dents in the metal. These dents may also appear on flashing and around window frames. 
  4. Pockmarked Vents. Like finding dented gutters, vents that are pockmarked are also a sure sign of roof damage. Pockmarked vents can lead to cracks and holes that may allow the elements, or even wildlife, into the home.
  5. Damage Around the House.  Look for dented, cracked, or missing siding on the outside of your home. These signs, along with cracked or shattered windows, damaged window sills, or window casings, indicate damage to the home’s entire exterior, including the roof. Finding such damage usually means that one, if not all, of the above signs will be present as well.

Sometimes hail damage is easy to spot. Other times extensive damage may not be visible, lurking just beneath the surface of a roof.

The Importance of Storm Damage Restoration 

Prompt storm damage repair is essential to protect the home's roof and structure. Calling in a professional early can save time and money by catching water leaks early before they cause more damage or lead to mold or mildew problems.

Even if the damage to the roof looks insignificant, any water that enters the home has the potential to wreak havoc on unprotected wood, insulation, drywall, and much more.
