Billings, MT has entered the hail damage season. Some of the storms of the last few years have produced serious damage throughout the Billings area. Even the smallest hailstones can create wear on roof shingles – a hailstone that is only 1cm can impact your home at 20 mph. Needless to say there are no ways to protect your home against a hailstorm, especially your roof, however not all hailstorms cause tremendous damage. Sometimes the damage is very minor, although the minor damage can decrease the life of your home’s roof. Hailstones can pick away at the mineral granules in the shingles of the roof and this can cause a problem for any homeowner.
