Wind and hail damage is very costly. In fact, between 1991 and 1995, this kind of damage resulted in about $8 billion of insurance payouts each year. Roof damage caused by wind and hail made up a significant portion of these payouts. When asphalt shingles are damaged by hail, they can lose large amounts of granules, lose material at the edges, and suffer penetration by the hailstones.
