  1. Hail hits your roof and causes an indentation, weakening the integrity of the shingle.
  2. Over time the protective granules wash away, exposing the fiberglass shingle.
  3. The sun then bakes the fiberglass core, weakening the shingle.
  4. Water intrudes behind the compromised shingle causing a water leak.
