The process of assessing hail damage is sometimes subjective. Damage can range from minor bruises to major punctures. Surprisingly small amounts of damage can harm the granulated surfaces resulting in future deficiencies.
The granulated surfaces protect the underlying bitumen from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays. Without the granules on the shingles the asphaltic bitumen will eventually deteriorate, exposing the fiberglass substrate and creating a potential leak.
Large hail can puncture roofs and become an immediate water hazard to the interior contents. This kind of damage is objective. All parties concerned agree on this damage. Significant granular loss may reduce the life expectancy of the shingle. This kind of damage is subjective.

Upgrading to a Hand Nailed Roof System
Many Roofers consider hand nailing to be the best installation procedure for asphalt shingles. The only down side to hand nailing is that it is more expensive. Over the years we’ve noticed that it is possible for nail guns to overdrive nails, which may reduce the wind resistance of the newly installed roof.
We’d like to share one example from our office in Houston, Texas of the strength of a hand nailed roof. After Hurricane Ike we discovered how wind resistant a hand nailed roof is. Several hundred of our hand nailed roofs in Kemah, Seabrook, and the Galveston area faced the full force of Hurricane Ike. The only shingles our clients were picking up in the aftermath of the storm belonged to their neighbors. Every one of these upgraded roofs withstood 90 mph + winds. Unfortunately for some other homeowners in the area, they realized that their pneumatically installed roofs did not withstand the hurricane force winds as well as the hand nailed roofs.
On average a hand nailed roof will cost $20 more per square to install, but it is well worth it. Please let us know if you’re interested in having us quote a hand nailed roof system as an optional upgrade.
