Even in the warmer summer temperatures, it can still hail. It commonly occurs in mid-latitudes in the early summer, where the surface temperatures are warm enough to encourage strong thunderstorms, but the upper atmosphere is cold enough to hold ice.
It’s important to get your roof inspected after a hailstorm to determine signs of damage.
Beneath the Surface
Hail damage affects more than just your roof’s surface. Even the smallest cracks from hailstones can cause water to seep in under the shingles. The granules on the shingles can loosen and fall once the moisture evaporates. Over time, this can weaken the shingles and increase their likelihood of being blown off in high winds.

Degree of Damage
The size, speed and direction of the hail determine how much damage it can inflict to your roof. Compared to metal or wood shake, asphalt is more prone to hail damage. A roof inspector has to measure the size of dents on the shingles, flashing or metal roof vents.
Severe damage on a roof due to hail refers to obvious dents, cracks and holes while latent damage is characterized by granule loss or structural weakening of shingles. Shingles that are installed over other shingles are more likely to get severely damaged. Poorly ventilated, low-quality shingles and aging roofs will also get seriously affected.
