The hidden damage on your roof caused by hail impact can reap havoc on your roof causing water damage over time. Insurance companies would rather catch and repair the roof damage before it becomes a whole house issue with wet walls and flooring. How does hail damage your roof?
- Hail hits your roof and causes an indentation, weakening the integrity of the shingle.
- Over time the protective granules wash away, exposing the fiberglass shingle.
- The sun then bakes the fiberglass core, weakening the shingle.
- Water intrudes behind the compromised shingle causing a water leak.
