Some homeowners don’t even realize damage has been done to their roof.

Identifying hail damage on property such as a car or outside furniture is fairly easy. The round dings on a vehicle after a hail storm appeared are obvious signs of damage. However, when it comes to the roof of a home, that can be a bit more complicated. In Georgia, it is normal to spot hail and many homes are damaged each year – some homeowners don’t even realize damage has been done to their roof.
In order to avoid any structural deterioration to your roof, it is important that you keep the roof in good condition. Structural deterioration can lead to a leak in the roof and a roof leak repair is not fun.
Once a roof has been damaged, as long as the homeowner had insurance on the house, most insurance companies do not mind paying to have the roof repaired. However, before the roof can be repaired, the insurance company will need to have a professional opinion from a roofing contractor. Of course, homeowners can go up on the roof and check for hail damage themselves, before they bring a professional in.
The Shingles – Have a look at the whole shingle along with the edges of the shingle.
Metal Roof – Check the metal valleys or roof vents on the roof for any dents. If the metal is soft, it will show dents and will indicate the hails size.
Asphalt Roof – Homes that have an asphalt roof will have missing granules. If there is substrate exposed and it was recently done, it will look fresh.
Before walking on the roof, make sure the individual is wearing proper shoes that have a good grip.
