Hail Damage Assessments
Hail damage will always be a given in Missouri. With hail that ranges from pea size to softball size, degrees of damage vary.
Some homeowners figure if their car escaped hail damage and no glass broke, there’s no cause for worry.
With speeds up to 90 MPH, hail damage can be very obvious. However, most times when it comes to roofs, it is hard to spot by the untrained eye. Nor should you try. We don’t advocate climbing onto your roof after a storm. It can be dangerous, and even with the risk, you can’t be assured you’ll get the answers you need.
Hail damage can cause slow leaks and issues with your roof that aren’t immediately evident to those on the ground. If your home recently experienced a hailstorm, it might be a good time to schedule a free roof inspection.
Signs of Hail Damage
When we walk your roof as part of your free roof inspection, we’re going to look for some of the following things:
- Dented gutters, gutter screens, or downspouts. If a roof has significant damage on top, the gutters will more than likely also have some impact damage.
- Cracks. Damaged shingles can happen without the presence of hail, but they’re still an indicator your roof needs maintenance regardless of cause. Cracked shingles often mean the water barrier is suspect and it’s not something you want to chance.
- Exposed roofing If your roof has shiny spots, or you are able to see underlying matter where the asphalt granules were knocked off, or if you see missing pieces along your roof, you need to address these areas.
- Bruising. We feel along the surface of the roof for dimples. If the bruising is small enough, action may not be needed at the time but can be a future concern and something that should be watched. We also check the dimpled shingles by pressing on them. If they have any give, the shingles may be starting to decay.
- Bubbles. No, not the fun kind you blew as a kid. These are much more serious. If your roof shows uneven bubbles throughout, you may have hail damage.
If you weathered a recent hailstorm, we suggest an in-depth inspection of your roof by a professional. A roofing professional can give you peace of mind that everything is okay or can help determine if your roof will require repair or replacement.
Don’t walk the roof on your own. It’s dangerous and it won’t save you any money. We believe in this advice so strongly that our emergency roof services begin with our offer for a free roof inspection. We don’t want anyone walking their roof—and worse, falling—because they were trying to save money or time.

Roof repairs need to be taken care of immediately for the best possible protection during a storm. It’s not something you want to let ride until the “end of the season.”
Assessing Wind Damage to a Roof
The damage caused by wind is a bit more subtle and something most homeowners wouldn’t consider unless there is a physical indication of the wind damage like a tree falling or shingles in the yard. Most people are just happy that the “howling” is over and their roof is not their first thought.
That’s why we offer a free roof inspection.
Signs of Wind Damage to a Roof
Here are a few key indicators to look for that can help you determine if there might be damage to your roof due to wind. However, always err on the side of caution. Give us a call and we’ll walk your roof for free and let you know if the roof has sustained any damage.
Missing or Damaged Shingles
This is the most obvious sign. A few missing shingles are fairly normal after a big storm. When caught early, missing shingles are easy and cost-effective to address. However, don’t ignore the shingles in your front yard. If they’re not on your roof, then you likely have an area of vulnerability where water can seep in. You could see a leak in the interior of your rooms, or it could be leaking on rafters in your attic and not making it into the interior yet.
Don’t assume that “no visible leak” means you can ignore this potential problem. Shingles are designed with wind-proof capabilities. If the wind can rip them off, there’s a vulnerability that should be addressed. If the vulnerability permeates several parts of your roof, it may be time to consider a roof replacement and not just a simple patch.
The thin strips you normally see on the roof’s most vulnerable parts, such as the valleys and hips are called flashings. Usually made of metal and sealed with tar to keep water out, flashings are highly susceptible to damage—or even removal—by strong winds. If you notice any of these missing, the rest of your roof is not far behind.
Granules in the Gutters
Lastly, check if you see a lot of shingle granules in the gutters. These are the waterproofing protection of your shingle system. Strong winds can strip these completely from your shingles and make them more vulnerable to the elements.
While you can check these things for yourself after strong winds, we suggest an in-depth inspection of your roof by a professional to help you better determine if your roof will require repair or replacement. A licensed contractor is best suited for this potentially dangerous job and, best of all, it won’t cost you anything.
