Hail ice rain on a red metal roof in Alabama.

At HomeSouth Roofing, we understand the challenges homeowners face when it comes to weather-related roof damage. That’s why we specialize in providing robust metal roofing solutions that not only meet but exceed the demands of harsh weather conditions, including hail. Here’s a comprehensive look at how hail of various sizes can impact metal roofs of different gauges.

How Different Sizes of Hail Affect Metal Roofs

**Small Hail (Under 1 Inch)**

– **24 Gauge Steel:** Highly resistant, virtually no denting.

– **26 Gauge Steel:** Very resistant, minimal risk of denting.

– **29 Gauge Steel:** Resistant, slight dents possible with larger stones.


**Medium Hail (1 to 1.5 Inches)**

– **24 Gauge Steel:** Sturdy with potential for minor denting.

– **26 Gauge Steel:** Possible moderate denting; good overall performance.

– **29 Gauge Steel:** Noticeable denting; vulnerable to frequent medium-sized hail.


**Large Hail (1.5 to 2 Inches)**

– **24 Gauge Steel:** Resilient; small dents may occur.

– **26 Gauge Steel:** Likely to show clear denting; consider more robust options for hail-prone areas.

– **29 Gauge Steel:** Prone to significant denting; potential for puncture in severe storms.


**Very Large Hail (2 to 2.5 Inches)**

– **24 Gauge Steel:** At risk of denting and punctures.

– **26 Gauge Steel:** High likelihood of significant damage and potential punctures.

– **29 Gauge Steel:** Severe denting and high risk of puncturing; structural integrity concerns.


**Extreme Hail (Over 2.5 Inches)**

– **24 Gauge Steel:** Dents and punctures are highly probable.

– **26 Gauge Steel:** Severe denting with a high risk of punctures.

– **29 Gauge Steel:** Extensive damage likely, with punctures and major dents almost certain.
