Hail? In Southeast Texas?
Here in southeast Texas, we don’t usually experience harsh winter weather very often. It almost never gets cold enough to snow, though the humidity makes it feel ten times colder than it really is. The idea of needing hail damage roof repair work done isn’t something that many of us here think about. Hail storms happen more often than you would think, though. Luckily, Tycoon Home Solutions has trained teams that can repair your roof, and home, after a nasty hail storm!
How to Spot Hail Damage
When it comes to hail storms, spotting damage can be very easy. Everything in the area will be damaged in some form. The extent of damage will depending on the length of the storm, the strength of the storm, and the size of the hailstones themselves.
Things to look for after a hail storm:
- Cracked windshields/windows and dents on your vehicle
- Check outdoor furniture and A/C units for dents and damage
- Dented, or cracked, windows and siding on your home
- Stripped trees and bushes (this is often the easiest sign that hail damage roof repair work needs to be completed)
Remember, always be careful and safe when checking your roof for hail damage. Instead of checking yourself, consider calling a professional team, like Tycoon Home Solutions, or using binoculars to check for damage from the ground.
If you do encounter damage, be sure to record it with pictures!
Hail Damage Roof Repair
Unfortunately, roof damage caused by hail can be difficult to spot for an untrained eye. The hailstones can strike your shingle at nearly 120 mph and cause soft spots along your roof. If the stones are big enough, they can even crack and break the protective shingles covering the roof. Hail has also been known to remove the protective granules from the shingles, weakening them, and making it easier for future damage to occur to your roof.
Once you know for sure that your roof has been damaged by hail, it’s time to move onto securing repairs. As with any roofing damage, time is of the essence. If the damage is slight, repairs should be conducted quickly to avoid the damage worsening over time. You can wait to fix things, in some cases, but it often results in higher repair costs. Heavy damage, though, should be handled right away.
