Hailstorms can be a nuisance, especially for homeowners. While most people know that hail can damage roofs, many don’t realize that it can also cause damage to other parts of their home. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some of the other areas that hail can damage besides the roof.
First and foremost, hail can damage your home’s siding. Hailstones can leave dents and pockmarks in vinyl or aluminum siding, which can compromise its structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. These dents and pockmarks can also create areas where water can seep in and cause damage over time.
Another area that hail can damage is your home’s windows. Large hailstones can shatter windows or cause cracks, which can lead to air leaks and reduced energy efficiency. In extreme cases, hail can even break through the glass and cause injury or property damage.
Hail can also damage your home’s gutters and downspouts. When hailstones hit gutters, they can dent or damage them, causing water to overflow and potentially damage your home’s foundation. Additionally, hail can cause downspouts to detach from your home, which can lead to water pooling around your foundation.
Lastly, hail can damage your home’s outdoor fixtures and landscaping. Hailstones can break outdoor light fixtures, damage fencing, and even harm plants and trees. If you have outdoor furniture, hail can also leave dents and scratches on the surface.
