Many contemporary roofing systems are rated for hail resistance. The scale is generally 1 thru 4, which conveys the size of hail that has been tested on sample of roofing material to let you the consumer know what the given material can withstand.
Roofs and siding on your home are continually vulnerable to hail damage, especially in hail-prone states such as Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming, and other areas. Fortunately, restoration of a hail-damaged roof is both attainable and economically feasible.
Diagnosing The Problem
Before restoration is even considered, the extent of the damage needs to be determined. Damage from hail to a roof can be stealthy and invisible from the ground.
With golf ball sized hail or larger, you’ll see noticeable signs of destruction to siding, gutters, or windows. In that situation, it’s probably a given that the roof also has some extent of damage.
Did you know? When hail is closer to quarter size, and up to golf ball sized hail, detection of damage from the ground level is difficult to assess.
