Roof Hail Damage

Identifying Hail Damage on your Roof

Catch problems before they do costly damage to your home's interior

Signs of Hail Damage

Coastal Carolina sees more than its fair share of storms.  It’s no surprise that mortgage companies require “Wind and Hail” policies for coastal residents. Hail causes serious damage to our property, including roofs. It can bruise, crack, and split roof shingles, letting water inside your home.

It’s important to inspect your property after a storm. Since some roof damage isn’t easy to identify, its recommended that you call a roofing professional. Our inspectors can safely perform a thorough inspection and put your mind at ease. Here are some of the things we look for.


Small divots in your shingles may look harmless but over time, rain + wind will remove loosened granules, causing rapid deterioration resulting in leaks a year or two after the hail event.


Often not visible from top of the shingle. Experienced roofers can locate impacted areas by noticing missing granules. We feel for a dent or soft spot then lift shingle to confirm the rupture.

Granules in Gutter

One of the biggest signs of hail damage. Hail knocks the asphalt on your shingles loose and it usually ends up in your gutters.

Damaged AC Unit

Hail damage to your AC unit and other things around your house, such as gutters and siding, indicate that your roof was also damaged, even if you can't see it from the ground.

Damage to Car

If your car was damaged by hail, chances are, your roof was damaged too, even if you can't see it from the ground. Call us for a free roof inspection.

Missing Shingles

Missing shingle tabs mean your roof sustained significant damage. This is a strong indicator that you may need a new roof. Call us for a free, professional roof inspection.

What Our customers say

Kevin F. ★★★★★
“We were very happy with Marathon, and John in particular. He worked tirelessly with our insurance coverage and ended up getting us a complete roof replacement even though our insurance company only wanted to cover half. The new roof is beautiful and seems to be holding up to the recent winds and rain very well.”
Ward M. ★★★★★
“I think this is the best contractor I have encountered in 8 years in the area. John runs an exceptionally responsive and professional operation.”
Linda W. ★★★★★
“We used Marathon Roofing to replace our roof in Leland and inspect and repair our roof at Carolina Beach. This is the best customer service we have experienced since we moved here in 2007. I would highly recommend Johnathan Hakes and Marathon Roofing!!”
Yelena & Bryan ★★★★★
“We would like to express our appreciation to John, with Marathon Roofing, for his fast response and a job well done on our chimney, which was damaged by strong winds. We would recommend him to anybody who need a quality job, or help with insurance clam, as Marathon is very reliable and knowledgeable company. We couldn’t have asked for better service and would definitely use this company again in the future.”
