Most people will do just about anything to avoid climbing on a roof. I get it. For those of you that prefer to stay on the ground, I’ll show you exactly what you’re missing.

Today’s topic is seeing is believing and what does hail damage looks like on your roof. My name is Jeff Riss and I’m the president of Peak Roofing & Construction, based in Frisco, Texas. We serve the North Texas area.

After a hailstorm most people do not want to climb their roofs which I highly recommend. I’m here today to show you what hail damage looks like both on a minor and major scale. This roof was hit by a recent hailstorm and had anywhere from two to three-inch hail on it.

This is a good example of a minor hail hit.

This is what I would consider a major hail hit on a double layer ridge cap that has two layers. It has punctured through the matting on the shingle of both layers as you can see.

As you move up the ridge cap you can see the severity where the damage has completely penetrated the shingle. I would consider this major hail. Here’s another example of severe hail damage to this roof. You can see the fiberglass coming out of the mat of the shingle. Here is a severe hail hit. What is dangerous about this area is that it is in the valley where the water flows down the roof.

Seeing the severe hail damage on this roof, you do not want to wait any longer to have your roof inspected. Please contact Peak Roofing & Construction. Our products and craftsmanship are guaranteed.
