Hailstones can travel up to 90 mph.• The stones will scour the protective granular surface off of asphalt shingles.
• Larger stones can crack tile and slate, inviting leaks.

Not all Damage is Visible
To an untrained eye, from the ground, the surface may appear untouched after a storm. You might not spot problems in the roofing materials. We suggest that you look for less obvious signs of distress.• Inspect your gutters, metal mailboxes and nearby cars. If they have dings and dents, your roof might also.
• Check for piles of tiny dark chips or sand-like grains around gutter downspouts. This may indicate erosion of the protective granules on asphalt shingles.
• Look for dark spots, discoloration or holes in your ceiling. This is a good indication of a leak.
