Nashville gets its occasional hailstorms, so it’s important to be prepared for when hail strikes! Everyone knows that hail can bring serious damage and dents to cars and windows, but did you know that hail can seriously damage your roof? In fact, it can damage your roof in several different ways.

Hail Damage

  • Wind – The wind from a hailstorm can sometimes be enough to damage your roof. When the winds are stronger, loose shingles may break free. Hail may also travel at a faster, more damaging speed when this happens.
  • The size of the hail – Hail comes in all sorts of sizes, from a pea to a softball. Those pieces of hail that are larger will likely cause more damage to your roof.
  • The material of your roof – Different building materials respond to the impact of a piece of hail in various ways. Hail can dent aluminum siding and gutters, but it can crack vinyl siding. Roofs can even be punctured if the hail is fast and large enough.
  • Barriers – Thankfully, trees and other coverage near your house may help prevent too much damage to your roofing from the hail.
