Addressing Hail Damage Concerns

Updated: Oct 25, 2023

Metal Roofs have excellent resistance to extreme weather conditions. They are highly capable of enduring hail without significant issues, even outperforming most other types of roofs. While all roofing materials, such as shingles, tiles, and shakes, are susceptible to hail damage, metal roofs exhibit a high level of resistance. During severe weather conditions, a metal roof may sustain minor dents without penetrating the metal roofing.

In the rare event of hail damage to a metal roof, it is highly likely to manifest as minor cosmetic dents. If there happens to be a crack in the roof, water can seep through it, resulting in severe harm to the interior of the house and potentially leading to long-term problems like mold and rot. Furthermore, the stretch caused by the initial impact of the hail will compromise the integrity of the metal roof and will increase the breakdown in the impacted area leading to faster corrosion.
