What Does Hail Damage to Your Roof Look Like?

 

Shingles can react differently when struck by hail. As an example, hail damage to asphalt and composition shingles can look very different than hail damage to wood shingles. It is important to know the different effects of the damage to properly identify whether or not you have roof damage from hail.

 

Asphalt and Composition Shingles Hail Damage

  • Random damage with no discernible pattern.

  • Hail hits that are black in color.

  • Loss of granules, which may expose the roof felt.

  • Asphalt and/or mat that appears shiny.

  • Hail hits that are soft to the touch, like the bruise on an apple.

 

Wood Shingles Hail Damage

  • Random damage with no discernible pattern.

  • A split in the shingle that is brown/orange in color.

  • A split in the shingle that has sharp corners and edges.

  • A split in the shingle that has little to no deterioration at the edges.

  • Impact marks or dents along the splits.
