It is normal wear. That is my point. Granular loss is NOT damage. Roofs wear, fast or slow. There is no way to prevent it. And that granular loss will have no more impact on the life of the roof than any other storm.
Correct...not "damage", but the homeowner may have to replace the 25 year shingle sooner than 25 years!
In the report, I didn't mention "damage" at all...just that the overall life expentancy had been reduced.
Just posing the question here, but if it's considered "normal wear" and the shingle doesn't last per the warrantied 20-25 years, are the mfgrs. then liable for warranty or will they say it was storm damage?
