A: On shingle roofs, hail causes damage to the tiny granules that protect your roof from the sun. As the asphalt underlayment is exposed, the corners start to curl up and become brittle. Hail damage can cause your roof to leak and on tile, slate, and shake single roofs, hail can cause cracking, breaking and accelerated shingle aging. The most common hail damage issues are:

  1. Leaking, dripping and water stains in your house
  2. Hail damage accelerates shingle aging and granule loss
  3. Reduces the value of your home
  4. Can cause mold and structural damage
  5. Voids manufacturer warranty for materials
