When hailstones strike aluminum siding, it can create what is called cosmetic hail damage.

Hail can also put cracks in vinyl siding, that may not show up, for months or years, until it is too late, to turn into insurance for replacement. You should always look closely AT YOUR SIDING AFTER A SEVERE STORM JUST TO BE SURE.


Depending on the size of the hailstones, the strength of the winds and other factors, the damage may consist of obvious deep impressions or more subtle dents, only visible in certain light. Under this certain light (when the sun reflects upon your house at a certain angle) a house that looks normal can suddenly look ravaged.


Hailstones can also cause damage to different types of roofing systems. Hail can damage a cedar roof by causing small splits in the wood shingles. This can greatly diminish the life of the roofing structure. Asphalt roofing can get what are often called “bruising marks.” These marks can lead to problems in the future if left not repaired.
