ROOF HAIL DAMAGE FACTORS IN NEW YORK
BELOW ARE SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS THAT CAN AFFECT THE TYPE AND DEGREE OF DAMAGE THAT CAN BE IMPACTED BY A HAILSTORM. USE THIS AS A GUIDE TO HELP IDENTIFY HAIL DAMAGE TO YOUR ROOFING SYSTEM.
WHAT DOES HAIL DAMAGE DO TO A ROOF?
Hail damage can vary based on several factors, such as size, wind direction, wind speed, roof material, age of roof and the slope. Hail damage can ultimately lead to some costly roof leaks, among other issues. It’s the cosmetic damage that can be more severe than it appears. Broken edges, punctures, bruises, and granule loss have been known to cause serious consequences. Let’s take a look at a few specific types of damage.
Hard hailstorms can grip the shingles, causing cracks. This ultimately causes exposure and tears, creating bare spots on the roof. Cracked shingles will not be able to properly protect your roof from any inclement weather in the future.
This is essentially the sandpaper-like part of shingles. When shingles lose granules, asphalt coating is then exposed to the elements. This will lead to accelerated aging. Always check your gutters after hailstorms to see if any granules have come free.
FRACTURED FIBERGLASS MAT
This can be slightly difficult to detect and usually requires a professional check. Fractured fiberglass can end up causing buckles, tears and cracks.
EXPOSED FIBERGLASS MAT
Hail can shatter the shingles’ surfacing, causing it to break free from the mat underneath.
WEAKENED SELF-SEAL STRIP
Hail and high gusts of wind can weaken your shingle’s seal integrity. Weakened seals cause shingles to blow off and leave the roof exposed. Whenever a shingle is damaged, its integrity has been compromised. If your residential and/or commercial roof has been destroyed by unforeseeable weather conditions, contact George & Alex Roofing immediately to prevent any further costly roof repairs.
