When you survey the damage done to your car or roof after a hailstorm, it’s hard to imagine how in the world so much damage was done by one storm. Hailstorms actually can cause terrible damage to anything exposed to its path of destruction.
A hailstone can be the size of a pea and reach sizes close to softball. Due to the fact that most hailstones do not have smooth edges, each one can impact the type of damage they cause. It can cause small dings in siding, gutters or asphalt shingle, but it can also crack vinyl siding or wood shakes.
