North Georgia's most typical size hailstone is less than the diameter of a monetary quarter. Smaller hail sometimes falls from higher in the earths atmosphere and can actually have a harder, more dense ice composition than the lower atmospheric slush that can sometimes make up larger hailstones. What this means for you is not having huge, "baseball" size hail, doesn't necessarily mean your roof hasn't been affected. A trained roof inspector who specializes in storm examination is qualified to determine if the lifespan of your roofing system or if the integrity of your shingles has been compromised, both of which should be covered by most homeowners insurance policies. If you haven't had leaks yet is doesn't mean you won't. Usually it takes 6 months or more for leaks to show from hail damage. Because the statutes of homeowners insurance varies from company to company we suggest you take advantage of our free roof inspection today, if not for a new roof, then at least for peace of mind.
