One of our goals here at Atlas Restoration is to educate homeowners about hail, how it can damage homes, and how to repair that damage properly and cost-effectively.
Here is an interesting infographic that teaches us how hail forms:
How to Spot Hail Damage
After a hail storm, it is typical for homeowners to give their roof a quick glance and, because they don’t see anything from the ground, conclude that they do not have any hail damage. However, there’s always more than meets the untrained eye, so we always recommend hiring a professional contractor to do a thorough inspection of your home.
In addition to inspecting your roof, we will take the time to do a thorough inspection of other areas of your home, including:
- Siding, doors, windows, and casings
- Air conditioning and generator units
- Decks and stairs
- Gutters and downspouts
Then, as part of your roof inspection, we will also inspect your vents, chimneys, flashing, and other features that may also have been damaged during a hail storm.
Here are some pictures of typical hail damage:
