Hail Damage to a Home’s Exterior

A hailstorm can damage a property in a number of ways. For example, it might damage asphalt roof shingles, a very common type of roofing in many areas. On these roofs, hail damage might appear as dark spots where the granules on the shingle designed to provide UV protection have been knocked off. These dark spots, or bruises, can shorten the roof’s lifespan. They may be accompanied with missing shingles due to high winds, dented shingles, or cracked shingles.

In addition to the roof shingles themselves, other parts of a home’s exterior may be affected by hail. For example, it may cause discolored spots on the home’s siding. In some cases, it is even associated with holes or cracks on parts of the home’s exterior. For a full picture of the extent of the hail damage, it is a good idea to contact a company that can perform a thorough post-storm inspection.
