This Hail Storm drop some Big hail in Connecticut
Connecticut is not known for hail storms but they do have their occasional ones. This one in July of 2012 dropped some pretty good sized hail. This size hail is enough to damage some types of shingles.
This is especially try of shingles that are older, dryer, and more brittle. This is not usually of concern to homeowners after a storm unless hail damages windows and puts holes in the siding.
The problems can actually occur years down the road because of the shingles being compromised from granule loss and matting damage from the ice falling on the Shingles.
This is not a disupted fact, that hail can damage shingles, as home owners insurance policies have set criteria for the amound of hail damage needed to deem the roof a total loss and in need of repair.
Fortunately for Homeowners in Connecticut, most insurance companies will pay the replacement cost value of a new roof.
