What kind of Damage does hail cause?
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, hail causes an average of $1 billion damage to crops and property each year; some years have exceeded more than $2 billion in damage. Hail Damage will destroy roofs, windows, siding, screen enclosures and more.
Anyone whose property is struck by hail needs to have professionals check to make sure there is damage. Not all hail storms cause damage, Brennan says. Pea-sized hail (1/4 of an inch) or marble-sized hail (1/2 inch) might not cause damage. Anything larger, say a dime or a quarter (3/4 to one inch) can cause serious damage. Golf ball-sized hail is 1 ¾ inch and softball-sized hail is 4 ½ inches according to NOAA.
