Hail Storm and Wind Storm damage to roofing can be clearly seen from the road or it may take a specially trained eye for it to be detected. In the image above there are clearly visible impact points on the roof. However, to a trained eye the shingles show signs of aging that compromised the shingles ability to withstand even the impact of small hail stones.
Wind Storm damage can be seen when tabs of the shingle is missing or even complete sections be missing entirely. There is a form of wind storm damage that is not easily detected except when you have water damage to your ceiling or walls but when you inspect the roof it appears to be intact. Low pitch roofs can experience tabs of the shingle lifting up from the shingle below it but the tab is not torn off. When this occurs the storm winds push water up and under the tab past the moisture barrier and a leak is manifested inside the structure. What is worse this kind of damage may not be evident at the time of the wind storm. So if other homes in your neighborhood has visible roof damage or you observe homes receiving tear offs and re-roofs it is always best to have a professional come out and inspect yours.
