Even a fast-passing hail storm can result in significant damage to your home’s roof. It’s not uncommon in Texas to have up to golf ball size hail that seems to come out of nowhere.
These storms can cause thousands of dollars of damage in just a matter of minutes. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to detect damage from the ground, and just because you don’t have a leak doesn’t mean there’s not a problem.
Keep in mind the hail can cause damage to other parts of your home like your siding, windows, AC units or other buildings (like sheds or barns) on your property which you’ll want to make sure are all functioning properly.
Spotting shingle damage from the ground can be nearly impossible— but lucky for you, roofers like us here at GAL-TECH, perform free inspections to check for possible damage.
What you should do if your home’s been in a hail storm?
If your home or business experience hail of any kind, there’s no harm in having it checked out. If your roof is okay, you’ll have peace of mind—but if there is damage you’ll want to have it taken care of as quickly as possible.
