Factors Affecting the Degree of Hail Damage
1. Size and Density – Some hailstones are very small while the others are as large as softballs. The sharper the edges of the stones, the more damage they inflict on your roof.
2. Wind – The changes in wind direction and speed affects how hard the hailstones fall.
3. Barriers – Natural barriers like trees or landscaping can reduce the impact of hail damage.
4. Roof material – Depending on their age and condition, materials absorb hail impact differently. Hail can cause dents on asphalt, cut through wood shakes and crack vinyl siding.
