What Factors Determine if Your Roof Gets Damaged in A Hail Storm?
The best roof for your home depends on various factors from aesthetics to your budget. When choosing a roof most homeowners never consider how hail damage will affect the material chosen to construct the roof. Below are some of the factors that determine how damaged your roof can be when Houston is hit with our next hail storm.
Material: Some roofing materials can handle impact better than other types of material when pelted with hail. The most common type of roofing material in Houston is asphalt shingles because of their affordability. Other choices include wood, slate, clay, rubber, and concrete just to name a few. The best durable roofing material for a hailstorm is rubber. The worst shingle for a hail storm is asphalt because they are not designed to stand up to significant size hail in fact class 4 asphalt shingles are not covered by the manufacture by hail damages. If a hailstone is larger than two inches and your roof has asphalt shingles, you will likely need to have your roof repaired if not replaced. During the inspection we will look for signs of dents and impressions that loosen your granules coating, shortening the lifespan of your asphalt shingles.
Wind Damage: Another factor in how your roof holds up during a hail storm is the speed and direction of the wind. During a hail storm changes in wind can affect if there is damage to an isolated area of your roof or if the hail damage covers the entire surface area. When hail damage is confined to only a small section roof repairs are generally sufficient but if there is a large area of the roof that has been impacted you may need more significant repairs in which case a roof replacement may be sought out by you or your insurance company.
Size: If you have lived in Houston long enough you have seen some hail storms bring only small BB-sized hail while other hail storms can be golf ball or even baseball-sized. If the hail is larger than the size of a coin severe hail damage can occur to your roof as well as damage your flashing, chimneys, vent hood, and any skylights you may have.
Barrier: Some roofs are left out in the open, there are no trees above them or barriers in the way, this can have both pros and cons. Some natural barriers can reduce the ability of hail damages but then again, a tree branch falling on your roof can leave damages if the impact is hard enough.

Common Hail Storm Roof Damages
Hail Damages to an Asphalt Roofs
Any hail larger than 1 inch in size can damage asphalt shingles, some of the damages can be punctures, tears, and fractures or bruises to the shingle but the most common issue is having the granules knocked loose. The granules on your roofs main purpose is to protect the underlying asphalt from harmful UV rays and sun exposure. When your asphalt shingles are left unprotected, the shingles can crack, blister and are prone to leaks causing water to seep into the interior of your home. Also, when the granules are not there to protect the roof, your roof is more susceptible to harmful botanical growths such as mold, mildew and algae. These types of damages usually are able to be covered under the homeowners insurance so that you only have to pay for the deductible to replace your roof.
Hail Damage To Slate Roof
If you’re a Houston homeowner who has a slate tile roof this means your roof has sedimentary stone composed of layers. If you had a roof recently installed it may hold up better in a hail storm if the hail is smaller than the size of a quarter, but no roofing material is not susceptible when hit with ping pong-sized hail for even just a few minutes of the day. Older slate roofs can be damaged by almost any hail impact as the slate has become softer and more brittle. After a hail storm, you may notice your slate roof has become punctured or cracked. You may notice this if you view your roof from the ground with a set of binoculars but at EDR Roofing our roof specialist have access to the proper equipment to check the entire roof surface safely. We look for damages not only to the slate but the nails holding the slate in place. Hail can damage the nail holes from the backside leaving an entry hole or larger exit hole. Regardless of what type of roofing material is over your head you can rest assured that our roofing specialist are knowledgeable and skilled to know how to repair and replace a roof impacted by hail damages within the greater Houston and Fort Bend County area so that your roof is structurally intact keeping you, your family and house safe and defended from all storms and outside elements.
Clay Tile Hail Storm Roof Damage
Any hail smaller than 2 inches will generally not damage a clay or concrete roof unless it's improperly installed. Assessing storm damage roof repairs can be difficult for these types of roofing materials unless you have trained eyes to know precisely what to look for. Some of the storm damage roof repairs needed for these tiles can break or chip the clay tiles or the hail may cause cracks to go all the way through the center of the clay tile. Your clay tiles may have hairlines cracks across the entire roof surface due to a severe hail storm with a golf ball or baseball size hail, if this is the case you will likely need your roof replaced.
