Home Inspector Finds Hidden Hail Damage

Home Inspector

Home Inspector discovers hail damage on West side of the roof.  The life of this roof has been seriously compromised due to excessive hail damage.  What makes this inspection interesting is the fact that there was very little damage on the East side of this A-frame roof, which is much more easily visible from the ground.  The West side of this home is parked rather close to its neighbor obscuring everyone’s view from the ground.  We have all seen storms where the wind causes the rain, hail or snow to come down at a severe angle.  This is what can result–one side of a roof is devistated while the other may show little or no damage.  Just because one side of a roof looks good, the inspector must check each individual side.  During the home inspection the inspector traversed the roof and discovered this rather serious undisclosed damage.
