We just had a terrible hail storm this past weekend, and were curious to know how I could detect hail damage to my roof.  What do you suggest?  

Looking for hail damage can be difficult if you don’t know where to look.  We recommend looking at a few places when identifying damage to your roof from hail.  Inspect your gutters and downspouts for any possible dimples caused by hail.  We also recommend looking for internal damage to your building caused from roof leaks.  This type of damage usually doesn’t happen overnight, but if you do spot a leak, this means it’s probably from damage you’ve experienced over a long period of time. 

Lastly, inspect your roof.  If you see dimples or damage to equipment such as HVAC equipment, this could mean your roof took a beating from a hail storm.  If you do see these signs, don’t wait and let the problem persist.  Have a trained roofing professional thoroughly inspect your roof for possible repair.
