    Effect of Hail on Roofing Shingles

    Hail is a natural weather phenomenon that is common in our region and can severely affect the roofing shingles. The frozen precipitation falling at higher speeds on the surface of the asphalt shingles can create dents or chip off the surfaces and underlying mat. The exposed material further deteriorates and eventually causes leaks on your property. Installing Class 4 impact resistant shingles such as the CertainTeed Northgate shingles is the best way to mitigate the effects of hail damage on your roofing shingles.

    Roof Hail Damage

    Hail Damage Roofing Shingles

    Hail can cause dents on the asphalt shingles when they hit the roofs at greater speed. Continuous hail impact at the same spots can break the roofing shingles. A quarter size hail is enough to create havoc on the roof surface causing heavy damage to the asphalt shingles.

    Here are some common effects of hail on the roofing shingles.

    Hail Impact

    Effects of Hail on Roofing Shingles

    Hail can be in different shapes and sizes and can damage even the metal parts of the roof. Severe granule loss can result when the hail hits the roofing shingles. The protective coating on the shingles is lost and can further crack the shingles. When the shingles are splitting and cracking after a hail storm, the roof deck is immediately prone to moisture and rotting.

    Fixing Hail Damaged Roofing Shingles

    Roof Hail Damage

    After inspecting the roof, a roofing contractor may suggest complete or partial roof replacement. If any insurance claims processing is involved, they may need additional proofs and documentation. Hail damaged shingles if left unattended can cause water penetration in to the interiors of the building. In some cases, the entire roof deck and sheathing may need replacement.

    Class 4 Impact Resistance

    Hail Impact Roofing Shingles

    Selecting a roofing shingle that has Class 4 impact resistance rating is necessary. These products are tested against a steel ball of two-inch diameter. Even when hit by the steel ball in the same spot twice, Class 4 impact resistant products do not crack. The Class 4 impact resistance rating also ensures that the exposed surface, the back surface, and underneath layers are unaffected. The products must demonstrate resistance to fracturing, cracking, splitting, rupturing, crazing, or any other opening of the roof layer during testing.

    CertainTeed Northgate Shingles

    CertainTeed Northgate shingles are some of the impact resistant models that can reduce the hail damage on your roof. The residential shingles are rated Class 4 impact resistance according to the UL 2218 standards. The Northgate shingles when installed by a certified roofing contractor such as the Olde Town Roofing, can result in a long-lasting roof. Limited lifetime warranties are available from the manufacturer which are effective only if installed by a certified roofing contractor.

    Ice Dam Threat Levels

    Ice dams are an indication of the underlying problems in the roofing system. The freeze-melt cycles of brutal winters cause the ice dams on a property. Homeowners must observe the ice dams and identify the threat levels. Aged out roofing systems with outdated components also contribute to the ice dam issues. When ice dams are present, call the expert roofing professionals to investigate and prevent the ice dams in the future.

    Ice Dams

    Poor insulation and air leaks in the house end up in the attic. In the winter, warm attics melt the snow on the roof. The melted snow refreezes at the eaves before reaching the ground causing ice build up. Continuous freeze-melt cycles throughout the winter increase the roof ice damage. Preventing ice dams is a better approach to avoid long-term roof issues.






    Residential buildings, apartments, townhomes, abandoned buildings, vacation homes, and all properties are susceptible to ice damage in winters. If left untreated, the ice dams can ultimately lead to collapsing of the building.

    Ice Dam Threat Levels

    The ice dam threats can be classified into five levels:

    1.Low Ice dam Threat:






    Icicles showing up at the edges and eaves causing ugly and creepy look to the property. The property owner can schedule the roof inspection for an overall assessment.

    2. Medium Ice dam Threat:






    Ice dam built up continues to the overhangs of the roof. This increases the area of ice roof damage and more shingles are damaged. Time to get the attic checked and measure the airtightness of the building.

    3. High Ice dam Threat:






    Ice dams building up under the overhangs and in the patios. This indicates that the water under the shingles has melted and leaking under the overhangs. Interior ceilings and walls have water spots due to the roof leaks. The inspection is required for any damage caused to the affected areas. Mandatory replacement of the shingles or sheathing may be recommended.

    4. Severe Ice dam Threat: 









    Ice dams on the siding, windows, reaching up to the ground and complete building. Ice has completely formed on and under the gutters, soffit vents, and walls. At this point, the complete roofing system has suffered ice damage. The aged out components including the gutters have to be replaced with newer ones.

    5. Ice dam Emergency:

    Ice dam emergency is when the water starts pouring down the interior and exterior walls. You can see chunks of ceiling falling down and multiple roof leaks are evident. Residents must evacuate the building and return only after fixing the issues. The continuous moisture creates dangerous levels of mold and the falling debris may injure the residents. Contact expert complete home improvement experts at Olde Town Group to fix the overall exterior and interior ice damage.







    Most home insurance policies do not cover the ice damage or roof ice/snow removal services. Some may cover the damage if there are roof leaks but it entirely depends on how the insurance agent classify the loss. It is the responsibility of the property owner to identify the ice dam threat levels and take the necessary remedy.

    Prevent Ice Dams on Your Roof

    Tons of snow, deep freeze, and melting snow cause ice dams on the roofs. If left unattended, the ice dams can further increase the moisture on the roof damaging the shingles. Installing top quality products, proper insulation, adequate ventilation, and air-sealing the building are the key ways to prevent ice dams on roofs.

    Ice dams

    Heavy winter snow accumulates on the roofs and stays there until warm weather arrives. Hot sun rays melt the snow on the roof and the water drops down to the cold eaves and then freezes again. Hot air in the attic leaks into the cold roofs melting the snow and refreezing again at the eaves. Continuous back up of the ice on the edges of the roof forms ice dams. The snow on the steep slopes melts and falls off the roof. However, cold parts of the roof such as valleys and eaves freeze the melted water again to form the ice dams.

    Ice dam

    Ice dams can break the shingles and further damage the roof deck. Improper attic insulation and wrong ventilation cause the ice dams. The difference in temperatures in the unheated parts of the roof such as garages, sheds, and outbuildings also cause ice dams and icicles. Ice dams make the building look ugly and are also a clear indication of roof problems which must be fixed by experts.

    Icicles Roof

    Ice dams are also formed by the shade of trees, walls, and dormers on the roof which can cause immediate refreezing. Snow on the unheated parts of the house is melted by the sun rays and refreeze again before reaching the ground.

    Prevent Ice Dams

    Ice dams can be prevented by installing proper roofing system. A robust roofing system with underlayment, ice/water barrier, deck, and shingles are crucial. Proper installation of the material on the sloped and flat parts of the roof is key to prevent ice dams. Ice barrier, flashing, or back-pan may be needed along the walls, skylights, chimneys, and other parts of the roof.

    Edges of the roof where water is likely accumulated have to be sealed completely. Sufficient insulation in the attic is needed to prevent air leaks. Roof ventilation plays a key role to maintain the roof temperature same as the outside of the house. Fluid air/water barriers can be installed on the nails to prevent water leaks.

    CertainTeed Products


    Quality products from CertainTeed can provide a comprehensive roofing solution to prevent ice dams. The superior products are to be installed according to manufacturer recommendation to prevent leaks and ice dams.

    1. The Landmark shingles can be installed in a five-course diagonal pattern.
    2. Continuous ridge ventilation with CertainTeed ridge vent products combined with soffit venting can provide adequate roof ventilation.
    3. CertainTeed valley liner is required before installing shingles in the valleys. Alternate close-cut installation is recommended.
    4. Underlayment from CertainTeed acts as a superior ice barrier in winter.
    5. Drip edges are needed at the eaves and rakes.
    6. Nails are to be sealed with barriers.

    Preventing ice dams is a continuous process and has to be considered at the new roofing or re-roofing stage itself. Getting fall roof inspection and spring roof inspection is the best idea to prevent ice dams in winter.

    Clearing Ice dams

    Clearing ice dams is a task that must be accomplished only by professionals. Using do-it-yourself products such as roofing melt or deicer bricks may further damage the shingles and your shingle warranty may not be effective. You may injure yourself by falling or slipping.

    Multiple aspects of ice dam removal must be considered. Clearing the snow with a snow rake, de-icing the eaves, checking the attic insulation, air-sealing the building, and maintaining the roof temperature is required.
