Hail Damage 101
Hail is one of the most common causes of storm damage to Dallas/Fort Worth residential roofs. The DFW area experiences several hail storms each year. Hail pummels the roof surface at high velocities, which can cause anything from minor to catastrophic damage, depending on the hail’s size.
Even “minor” hail damage, like surface divots, can be problematic since those areas hold water instead of shedding it. Anything beyond “superficial” damage should be evaluated by a professional roofer soon after the storm passes. Identifying and addressing hail damage helps homeowners prevent premature roof leaks, degradation, and failure down the road.
Hail is the most frequent cause of storm damage to Texas roofs. When large hailstones hit shingles at high velocities, their impact can crack tiles, expose nailheads, and create holes. Golf ball-sized hail and larger tend to inflict the most roof damage. Heightened springtime storms drop hail upwards of 4+ inches routinely in areas statewide. When this extreme hail falls in metro regions, losses of ten million dollars or more quickly result.
Signs You Have Hail Damage
- Pits/craters in shingles
- Granule loss exposing asphalt
- Visible nailheads
- Shingle cracking/splitting
- Roof leaks after storms
If you notice any of these issues after a major hailstorm, contact us right away for an inspection. The extent of damage may be greater than initially meets the eye.
