What Size Hail Causes Damage To Your Roof?
The size of the hail is a major factor in how it will affect your roof. The bigger the hailstones, the more likely they are to cause damage to your roof. It is important to know what size hail can cause structural damage and which ones should be left intact on your roof because some types of hailstones can actually help protect your home from other weather conditions like wind. In this blog post, we’ll explore the different sizes of hailstones and their effects on roofs so you can make an informed decision about if there’s any risk at all for you!
1. What is hail and what does it do to roofs
Hail is formed when water droplets are carried up into the atmosphere where they start combining with supercooled water to form ice. Once these hailstones form, gravity pulls them back down towards Earth and some of them will land on your roof! Hailstones can grow in size by picking up more water as they fall through a storm and this is why larger hailstones are more likely to cause damage to your roof.
What does this mean for you? If it starts raining, listen closely and watch the size of the hailstones because there’s a chance that they will be large enough to do some damage! You might see a few smaller ones in between or what look like flakes of snow but these can be misleading and make you think there is nothing to worry about.
3. The importance of inspecting your roof after a storm has passed
If it starts raining and you see a few larger hailstones, make sure to inspect your roof for damage after the storm has passed. You don’t want this problem lingering or leading to more serious problems like leaks in the future!
Not only should you have your roof inspected. You should be very careful that you hire a well-experienced roofing contractor to do the job. You should never try to repair a roof on your own, as this can create more damage and cost you even more money in repairs!
