What kind of hail will damage a roof?

Your roof is your home’s first line of defense against all Mother Nature may have in store. And every homeowner should feel confident that their roof is capable of handling various weather conditions, such as rough winds, pouring rain, and piling snow.  And one weather condition that homeowners may not initially consider, but should be aware of, is hail.

Not all hail can cause roof damage. Small fragments of ice may pelt your roof but cause little to no harm. However, if a stronger hailstorm comes through your area, it can cause damage to your roof.

Hail That Can be a Cause for Concern

Your roof serves as your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Therefore, having a strong and dependable roof in place is critical. However, even a hard-wearing roof can fall victim to a difficult hailstorm.

Hail that is around 1 inch in diameter, or bigger, can cause damage to your roof and warrant an insurance claim. When hail of this size comes in contact with your roof, particularly if your roof is made up of asphalt shingles, it can leave dents and dings. The impact of hail can also cause roof shingles to split. These compromised areas may negatively impact the structural integrity of your roof by creating weak spots that could deteriorate with time.

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

Brian N.

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.
