Hail Damage to Siding

Hail damage on aluminum siding looks like a round or teardrop shaped indentation, sometimes accompanied by a mark indicating oxidation of the painted surface has been removed. The picture below shows a wind-driven hailstorm which peppered the side of the home in a directional manner. This type of hail generally strikes one or two sides of a home.

If the dent in the siding is sharp or jagged, it was caused by some other type of impact which is considered mechanical damage. Hail leaves a dent with absolutely no type of abrasion. Depending on rainfall prior to the hail, it may or may not remove oxidation from the painted surface.

Hail will occasionally strike three sides of a structure, depending on the length of the storm and wind direction. The east side of a home rarely shows hail damage, as severe storms rarely track from the east. In general, if a home has damage on all four sides, multiple storms are the cause.
