Hail Damage

It pays to have an expert on your roof with an insurance adjuster

Classic Contracting claims specialists know what to look for regarding roof damage and may be able to see problems that the adjuster doesn't. We have worked with many insurance adjusters over the years and take a non-adversarial approach when talking with them. Let us help you!

How does hail damage a roof?
With all of the fuss about hail damage, you might expect to see large holes in your roof after a big storm. Instead, you probably wouldn't see much difference at all from ground-view.

So why is hail so damaging? First of all, most hail storms don't damage roofs, but occasionally the hail gets large enough to make small dents or divots in asphalt shingles. Those divots look pretty harmless - and they are at first - but over time they can wreak havoc on your roof.

Why? You've probably noticed that asphalt shingle have a sandy material on top. You may have thought that material (which consists mostly of ceramic granules) was there to give the roof an attractive color or to keep people from sliding off the roof. While the granules do provide those benefits, the real reason for using this material on a shingle is to protect the asphalt from the sun's UV rays.

When a large piece of hail hits your roof, it knocks off some of those granules and loosens others. Over time, rain washes away the loose material, exposing the asphalt. This causes the asphalt to dry up and crack - allowing water to leak in.
