Hailstones can cause a tremendous amount of damage to roofs due to the hundreds or thousands of hailstones pounding on the surface of the shingles. This causes the granules to come off the base of the shingle. This damage exposes the underside of the shingle, resulting in premature destruction of the roof. The loss of granules, commonly referred to as bruises, becomes apparent within 6-8 weeks after the hailstorm. The erosion of the shingles and roof continues as more seemingly minor weather exposes the damage sustained to the shingles.
The results of this weathering compromise the shingles by as much as 75% thereby reducing the expected life of the shingle to a mere 25% of its original life. Storms come and go but leave behind permanent damage. Leaks may result from this damage weeks, months, even years later if it goes unnoticed.
Hail isn’t the only culprit when it comes to roof damage, severe wind can do the trick too. Wind damage can lead to many things including leaks, lost shingles, and gutter issues. Roof shingles can suffer extensive damage during severe winds, and it is important to understand how to diagnose roof damage. Strong winds don’t hit roofs evenly, it is more prone to attacking the corners and edges of your roof. A strong wind can get under a shingle and rip it off, leaving your roof exposed which results in leaks.
Another potential result of wind damage is lifting which is when shingles look intact, but they are lifted upwards and nails are loosened. When shingles lift, the sealant can get broken which also results in leaks.
