How Hail Damages a Roof
Hail is dangerous to your home’s roof because it damages and decreases the roof’s life expectancy. Damage to the roof occurs when the protective granular surface of the asphalt shingle loosens and falls off. With the granules removed the shingle loses some of its protection, shortening the life span of the roof and making it more susceptible to additional damage. Such damage can easily compound into leaks and additional structural damage, causing tens of thousands of dollars worth of more damage.

Wind Damage, Storm Damage, Hail Damage
Roofing materials are subject to severe damage from elements such as hail, strong winds and flying debris. Generally, roofs are not designed to withstand winds of severe hail storm and tornado intensity. However, roofs may also be damaged by winds of moderate intensity, with gusts that may reach 50 to 75 miles per hour. The primary cause of wind damage in Minnesota is from the partial vacuum created by wind blowing over the edge of the roof. Nature tries to neutralize the low-pressure area by bringing in air from a higher pressure area, usually from inside the building. This air pushes up on the bottom side of the roof assembly. Over time, it loosens fasteners and breaks the adhesion making the roof susceptible to damage from the next moderate or strong wind. To counteract the effects of wind-uplift forces, the roofing and insulation should be adequately fastened to the roof deck. Also a securely-fastened perimeter detail should be provided.
