The Effects Hail Damage Can Have on Your Home
Did a hail storm just occur around your house and you’re worried about the damage it caused to your roof? CD Strong Construction is ready to help, but before you schedule your estimate with us, take a minute to remember if you’ve seen any of the below since the hail storm.

- Dented gutters and downspouts
- Hail splatter marks on the driveway

Hail damage can vary and in some cases may not be something that needs to be fixed right away. To cause roof hail damage, it usually takes a hailstone that is 1” or above in diameter. While some roofing materials are more hail-resistant than others, your roof can still become damaged from the hail storm. There are several factors that go into deciding whether a roof needs to be repaired following a hail storm.
Some of the factors include:
- Roof type
- Roofing material quality
- Installation methods
- Shingle layers
- Roof slope
- Wind speeds
- Size of hail
