HAIL EXPOSURE AND DAMAGE
The process of detecting and evaluating hail damage is
subjective at best, and often everyone involved will
offer a different assessment. Damage can range from
large, highly visible dents and tears to almost
undetectable indentations or invisible granule damage.
However, even small amounts of damage can harm the
surfacing material, leading to deterioration of the
shingles months later. Normally, if a shingle indicates
damage, the underlying components may be affected to
some degree. On damaged roofs, the hail impact may
affect the granular surfacing in the asphalt top
coating. This loosens the granules, potentially allowing
the granules to separate from the coating layer and wash
off the roof. Without the granule surfacing, the asphalt
top coating is exposed to ultraviolet radiation from
ordinary sunlight and will eventually deteriorate
exposing the fiberglass substrate and creating the
potential for a leak. On severe hail damage, the
fiberglass substrate may be physically broken further,
compromising the weather integrity of the shingle.
Without visible damage there is no real way to be sure
how much damage shingles have encountered. Damage may
not appear until months or years later.
When evaluating hail damage, look for the following
Tears in the Shingle – Tears
are normally worse on reproofs due to the irregular
surface support. The main areas showing damage
usually include hips, ridges, sides of dragon’s
teeth, and butt edges of shingles.
Indentations in the Shingle –
Indentations will be either round or half-moon
shaped. Some damage may not be visible and will
require you to feel for any indentations, or to
break the bonds of the shingle and feel the backside
for any irregularities.
Excessive Granule Loss – May
be an indicator of possible damage. Check gutters or
the ground around the house for loose granules.
Accelerated granule loss will significantly reduce
the life of the shingle.
Other Collateral Damage:
Tree or shrub damage
