Hail storms account for billions of dollars in property damage in the US every year. It can be difficult to spot hail damage on your roof from the ground. If your home has had a hail storm and you are concerned that your roof may have been damaged, you may be able to tell from a few other signs:
- Dented gutters or downspouts.
- Damaged HVAC unit.
- Dented siding.
- Chipped paint on decks.
An experienced roofer will be able to get up on your roof and determine if it indeed has hail damage. If you are concerned about hail damage to your roof, KEE Roofing can help. Contact us today and one of our experienced team members will be happy to assist you!
Absolutely a new roof can get hail damage. Typically it will take a 1” or more in diameter sized hail stone to cause damage to common asphalt shingles, but regardless of when they were installed, they can be damaged. Newer roofing materials do hold up better against hail than older roofing materials that have been under the elements for years, so depending on how old your roof is could determine the amount of damage you sustain. In addition, the quality of the roofing materials will also factor in how much a roof is damaged.
If the damage from a hail storm is functional and not cosmetic then it should be covered under your homeowner’s insurance policy, depending on the policy. It is very important to have a professional contractor inspect your roof and be in communication with your insurance company so that if you do need a new roof because of hail damage and you do have the appropriate coverage, it will be paid for.

Studies have shown that hail 1” in diameter and larger has the potential to damage roofs. Hail doesn’t have to create a hole in your roof to cause damage. If the surface materials from an asphalt shingle are knocked off that means the stability of the shingle has been compromised and water could leak in over time.
