How to Tell If Your Roof Has Hail Damage

Unnoticed hail damage can result in expensive repair costs and become a major concern for homeowners. After a thunderstorm rolls through, it is important to check your home for potential damage. Follow these expert tips from Right Rate Roofing to help spot damage to your roof.

How to Spot Hail Damage on Your Roof

Unless you are a professional with a trained eye, it is hard to see hail damage to your roof from your yard, driveway, or street. Therefore, it is important to seek help from a professional roofing contractor like Right Rate Roofing. However, if you prefer to check your roof before consulting an expert, here are several things to look for:


Check surrounding area(s) for damage

If other areas around your home show damage, your roof will almost certainly have sustained the same damage. Check your gutters, downspouts, siding, shutters, window screens, garage door, awning(s)/overhang(s), plants, and vehicles for hail damage.

Look for missing shingles

After checking around your home for damage, it is time to look up. The easiest way to spot damage is to look for missing shingles from your roof. Missing shingles will indicate trouble areas that you will want to address immediately.

Even if you don’t notice shingles missing from your roof, be sure to look at your neighbor’s home(s) as well. It is possible that they had shingles blow off or damaged from hail, which means your roof could be damaged too.

Keep an eye out for leaks

As mentioned above, unseen hail damage can lead to leak problems on your roof. Make sure to look around the interior of your home or within the attic to identify any water spots or moisture areas of concern.
