Hail Roof Damage
Central Texas is known for some pretty big storms in the Spring and Summer months. Many of these storms can create severe thunderstorms that produce smaller pea size hail to golfball size or even larger hailstones. Depending on the age and the materials of your home's roof, any of these types of hail can produce adequate damage requiring a repair or complete roof replacement.
SUSPECT HAIL DAMAGE/ WHAT TO LOOK FOR?
The fastest way is to determine damage is to look for any dents or broken parts of gutters, skylights, windows, or even dented airconditioner units. Getting on your roof to determine damage should be done very carefully and by a trained professional.
Hail damage can look like a few granules have come loose on the roof, There’s not necessarily a hole in the roof, you’d be surprised at the force it takes to knock the surface materials off of a shingle. When this is discovered, the integrity of the shingle has been compromised, and a water leak can develop over time. Even the smallest hail impact on a shingle can lead to a roof leak.
How to file an Insurance Claim for a roof.
It's likely when your roof is damaged to the point that it needs replacement, you'll want to get a new one as quickly as possible -- but that doesn’t mean you should cut corners to speed things along.
