What does hail damage look like on a roof?
Wind and hail storms can cause damage that will wreak havoc on your roof. New Mexico weather, although very sunny most of the time, can bring severe conditions including hail and high winds that may require roof repairs or even roof replacements in some situations.
What should you look for on a roof after a hail storm?
After a hail storm, it’s important to have your roof inspected for signs of damage. Some hail damage signs to look for include:
- Dents or bruises on shingles, tiles, or metal roofing.
- Cracks or splits in shingles, tiles, or metal roofing.
- Missing or damaged flashing around chimneys, vents, or skylights.
- Damage to gutters, downspouts, or other roofing accessories.
- Leaks or water stains on the ceiling or walls.
You are also going to need to contact your insurance company as soon as possible to file a claim. In the meantime, you can take steps to protect your property, such as covering any holes in the roof or removing standing water.
Is roof hail damage covered by insurance?
Yes, you may be able to claim hail damage on your roof depending on your insurance policy. Most homeowners’ insurance policies cover damage caused by hail, so if your roof has been damaged by a hail storm, you should be able to file a claim to have the damage repaired.
It’s important to contact your insurance company as soon as possible after the hail storm to start the claims process. The insurance company will send an adjuster to assess the damage and determine the next steps. Keep in mind that your policy may have certain exclusions or limitations when it comes to hail damage, so it’s a good idea to carefully review your policy and discuss any concerns with your insurance company.

How much does repairing roof hail damage cost?
The cost of repairing damage caused by hail can vary significantly depending on the extent of the damage and the type of roofing material. There are a few factors that can influence the cost of repairs:
- Roofing material: Different types of roofing materials have different repair costs. For example, asphalt shingles are typically less expensive to repair than clay tiles.
- Age of the roof: If the roof is older and in poor condition, it may need to be replaced rather than repaired. This will increase the cost.
- Size of the roof: The larger the roof, the more costly the repairs will be.
- Location: The cost of labor and materials can vary depending on the location of the property.

Fiddler Roofing specializes in hail damage
Though you may think you can easily detect wind and hail damage on a roof, some hail damage may not be easily visible which is why our qualified roofing inspectors get up onto the roof and walk it’s entirety to ensure they have identified any and all damages or penetrations and their current conditions.
Even if your shingles are in place, our roofing team can identify dimples from hail, curling, or bald spots from missing granules. While these may seem like minor issues, they all render your shingles less effective, or potentially useless, exposing you to further damage down the road.
