Asphalt Roof Shingles Can Easily Be Damaged After a Storm
The most common type of roofing in the country is asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles are made from asphalt that has been reinforced with organic material or fiber glass and they are coated with small metal granules that protect them from the sun’s rays which can cause them to deteriorate quickly. Many builders choose asphalt shingles because they come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and styles. Asphalt shingles do not do well when they are exposed to any type of severe storm. Asphalt shingles can become seriously damaged and require a great deal of repair after a major storm has hit.

If you have experienced a hail storm, look for dark areas or spots on your asphalt shingles. This indicates that roofing has been knocked away and in some cases you may even find holes, cracking or missing shingles.
