Hail damage is not simply a threat to the materials on your roof; it is something that may affect features below your roof and those making up your outdoor lifestyle, too. Here in North Texas we experience the gamut of weather perils, from wind to drastic changes of temperatures throughout the year, and hail is a particularly potent one.
Hail damage may include a multitude of risk factors you may not have yet considered. Call for a free estimate on repairs at 214-244-3619.
You have likely experienced this weather menace for yourself if you have spent any length of time in the Dallas, Ft Worth area. Hail damage is caused by a weather phenomenon of upward drafting winds that send moisture into the upper levels of the atmosphere. The more times precipitation is cycled from lower levels to upper levels – the more this is repeated – the larger a hail sample will be. Hail may happen in several instances throughout the rainy season, and it only takes one squarely-landed chunk of ice to compromise your roof's (and therefore your property's) weatherproofing.
Protection from weather and hail damage on your property starts from the top down. Additionally, your roofing system is only as good as its weakest area because once a breach is established moisture can find its way into parts of your property where it should not exist. Let's take the case of your home – though we service all types of roofs, hail is often a problem throughout residential areas and carries with it these liabilities, including:
- Roof leaks … There are record samples of hail exceeding the girth of a softball! However, a much more modestly- sized example may ignite hail damage. It may be the width of a quarter or smaller, traveling from the top of cumulous cloud and smacking on an asphalt tile at speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour, rapidly accelerating the deterioration process. Unexpected water may soon find its way into your interior walls and affect electrical components as well as furniture.
- Windows … We not only have plenty of experience troubleshooting and preventing interior havoc after a hail storm on roofs, but we also fix peripheral hail damage. That includes windows, which are particularly vulnerable when solid objects fall from the sky. More features throughout your property at risk typically include:
- Furniture (such as outdoor patio goods)
- Storage sheds
- Security cameras
- Satellite dishes
