Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding hail damage and roof repair in Kansas City:

What kind of damage can hail cause on my roof?

Hail, depending on size, can cause a variety of damage on your roof. Small pieces of ice may bounce off your roof without doing actual damage, but the bigger ones will not leave your roof unharmed.

Hail the size of ping pong balls hurtling towards your roof at 50 to 80mph is likely to crack, dent, and break your roofing shingles in pieces. Aside from these cracks, hail damage can also result in leaks, especially if the broken shingles leave nail heads and gaps exposed.

What are the signs of hail damage?

Signs of hail damage vary as much as the size of hail stones itself. Cracks and dents are the most visible signs which you can probably see from the ground by using binoculars. Don't climb and scale your roof to check. It's a risky prospect, especially if your roof has suffered a lot of impact damage.
