Recently, there have been a number of storms that brought hail across the El Paso area. Too often, people ignore the damage and don’t consider the short term and long term harm hail can cause. In this article, we’ll list how a hailstorm may damage your roof. 

Factors That Determine Hail Damage 

Every hailstorm is different; as such, they can cause different levels of damage to homes and vehicles. Wind can accelerate the hail as it falls, and smaller hail fragments have a different effect than bigger pieces of hail. The type of material your home is made of can determine how much damage you see as well. 

  • Splits or dents in shingles 

    • Hailstorms will often leave behind splits or dents in the shingles. This can expose the other layers of your roof and lead to leaks.
  • Loss of Granules

    • Losing granules will expose the felt of your roof, which can, in turn, leave your roof more susceptible to the elements. 
  • Impact Marks 

    • Hailstorms will leave impact marks, both small and large. Smaller ones are less noticeable, but larger ones may need to be addressed. They can affect the water flow of the roof and may hide deeper damage underneath. 
  • Damaged Gutters

    • Just like the shingles, gutters can sustain damage as well. Since this controls water flow, it’s important to inspect this aspect as well.
