Storms challenge Cumming, GA homes in Forsyth County roofs year round and hailstorms do a lot of roof hail damage. Made of ice and dirt, high wind slams hail into buildings with the force of a machine gun, damaging anything in its path. Hail is formed when rain, caught within the vortex of a cloud, passes back and forth between warm and freezing air, collecting layers of ice until the iced over raindrops grow too heavy for the wind within the cloud and fall to the ground, their weight increasing the force.
Irregularly shaped pellets of ice, hailstones can range in size from ¼” to grapefruit size and have the capability to leave holes in the protective covering on your roof. In worst case scenarios, they can cause splits in wood shingles. Asphalt shingles can lose granules, leading to deterioration and possible breaches.
