Hail and wind can cause significant damage to a roof, particularly an asphalt shingle roof.
The inspection image above is of a measurement of a large hail impact.
After a storm, all of your neighbors should hire their neighborhood home inspector to evaluate the condition of the roofs for all of the homeowners. The inspection image below is of an impact area by an inspector using chalk.
There’s no need for a homeowner to risk their life doing something that an experienced professional does every day. Hail and wind damage may likely be covered by a homeowner’s insurance policy. Every roof should be inspected every year, especially after a severe hail and wind storm.
