Northwest Colorado Hail Damage
Hail damage can be the easiest form of roofing damage to spot. Generally, damage can be seen as indentations and/or fractures on the shingle’s or metal’s surface. Due to the hailstones’ variety in size, shape, and hardness, they can create a random pattern of dents or depressions.
Hail impact may cause latent damage that can, over time, result in premature aging of the shingles, metal roofs, or other materials. Without obvious visual damage, there is no real way to be sure how much, if any, damage the roofing material has encountered. Latent damage caused by hail or severe weather may not be apparent until months or years later and may cause your roof to age prematurely.
What Does Hail Damage Look Like?
Hail damage looks like a dark spot, or bruise, where the roofing granules have been knocked away (look in gutters for accumulation of granules). Hail damage can also create actual holes, cracks, or missing shingles. On metal roofs, you may be able to see actual dents or depressions in the metal or flashing around the roof.
Where Does Hail Damage Occur?
Roofs are the most commonly damaged part of a home or business in hailstorms, and the damage that hail storms leave can happen at any part of your roof. The fastest way to know if you have hail damage is to call Berlet Roofing and get a free assessment of your roof. We start by looking for indentations on metal flashings, siding, chimney caps, or even skylight flashings. After some time, clusters of granules may come off (at the point of impact) in a random pattern and expose the asphalt.
