Roof repairs with hail damage like we see often here in Tulsa are becoming more and more needed with the past years storms. Hail is dangerous to your home or commercial roof because it decreases the roof's life expectancy. Damage to an asphalt roof occurs when the protective granular surface of the asphalt shingle loosens and falls off. With the granules removed the shingle loses some of its protection, shortening the lifespan of the roof and making it more susceptible to additional damage.
Hail can strike in any season. Hail stones can vary from pea size to 7” in diameter and anything larger than 1-3/4” has the potential to inflict significant damage. All too often, roofs sustain severe damage during a hail storm but owners and building occupants won’t realize any damage has occurred until the roof is beginning to leak. In most of the country, asphalt shingles are the primary roofing material used on roofs in general. Some common signs your roof has been damaged by a hail storm are; Dents or bruising on the roof's asphalts shingles, Granules are missing from the shingle (roofing shingle has ‘bald spots’), Affected roofing shingles feel softer to the touch, Granules are present in the gutters or at the base of downspouts, Metal air vents, gutters and siding are damaged and dented.
