As opposed to wind damage which is extremely easy to see and identify, hail damage is often times subtle and hard to identify. Proper identification of hail damage requires specialized training and experience. Hail damage to asphalt shingles cannot be seen without physically getting on the roof or a drone with a high resolution camera. Many homeowners have inspected their own properties and not noticed the damage they received. If there are many contractors and roofing companies frequenting your area it is extremely likely that there will be damage on your home.
When hail strikes an asphalt shingle, the granules are knocked loose and knocked off as well as driven into the matting of the shingle itself. At the same time, the fiberglass matting on which asphalt is laid before applying the granules during the manufacturing process, gets fractured/torn. Depending on the size of the hail and the condition of the shingles, the fractures may be small or large. Even with smaller fractures, over time the exposure to UV sun rays and temperature variation particularly in the winter, small fractures develop into leaks over time.
If your property sustained storm damage, you are obligated by your insurance policy to report the damage as timely as possible.
