On Monday, February 27th 2017, several areas across East Texas were affected by hail damage. We received reports of marble-sized hail all the way to ping pong ball-sized hail. We are monitoring the situation closely over the next several days as more bad weather is anticipated to roll across the area.
First of all, it won’t cost you anything – we will check your roof for hail damage for free. Secondly, it will cost you a TON of money if you have hail damage and do nothing about it.
The shingles on your roof are actually made of multiple distinct layers. The bumpy granules on the surface protect the shingles from the day to day effects of the sun while the lower layers provide a surface to hold the shingle in place and function as a seal to keep the water safely outside.
When it hails, repeated strikes on your roofing shingles can chip away that protective layer. Without that top layer of granules, the fiberglass layer beneath becomes exposed and can flex and crack, almost like a dried out leaf from a tree. Those cracks let in water, and water, of course, causes all kinds of nasty problems. Long term damage from a hail storm can include mildew, pest infestations, harmful mold, and water damage to your home’s ceilings and walls.
If you’ve lived in East Texas or DFW Metro for any length of time you know our weather can change on a whim. A day can start clear and beautiful only to have a powerful storm move in by lunch time. Did that bracing half hour storm that blew through a week or month or year ago have hail? Did you even have time to step outside and check?
Our professional inspectors can quickly spot the subtle signs of hail damage. In addition, we can check your roof for problems with your: Gutters, Flashings, Ventilation, Chimney, and Attic. We’ll give you a solid report on the condition of your roof and can help walk you through your re-roofing options in the event we do find damage. Our experts are specially trained to work closely with your insurance company and adjuster to ensure you receive the most towards your new roof.
Hiring a professional roofing contractor will assure you that all of your hail damage repairs are done correctly. If your home has suffered hail damage, please give us a call at (903) 500-2843
