Storm Damage Roof Repair
The DFW area has notoriously fickle weather as big as Texas. Straight line winds, hail, extreme rain - let's get your property back to normal as fast as possible.
Extreme weather events cause a variety of problems for your roof - leaks, destabilization, and hard to see issues that become way more expensive over time - like car brakes. Here's just some of what we fix.
Sometimes storm damage is very obvious, such as when shingles are missing or windblown. High winds can wreak havoc on most residential roofs, which are most prevalent in the spring. If your roof was subject to high winds, the damage might not be visible from the ground. Wind lifted shingles can reduce the life of a shingle when debris, dirt, and water are blown under the adhesive strips that stick shingles together. Shingles that have lost their adhesion are more vulnerable to even moderate wind. If you are unsure about whether your shingles were wind lifted, an experienced roofing technician can walk the roof and determine the scope of the damage, if any.
The most serious threat to a roof is hail, which also is most prevalent in the spring months, although large hail storms may occur any time of the year. When large hail storms come through, carrying stones the size of golf balls or larger, they usually cause enough damage to be seen from the ground, but not always. Many storms cause serious damage that can be seen only by inspecting the shingles from the roof top. Most homeowners, in fact, could not identify hail hits from a smaller storm. Experienced roofers frequently find enough hail damage to warrant full insurable roof replacements, whereas homeowners would not otherwise be aware.
Size of hail stones vary greatly, especially in Texas. Generally speaking, hail stones smaller than golf ball size do not do significant damage to roofs in moderate to good condition. Older roofs, however, are more easily damaged by even small stones.
It is not unusual for Texas storms to produce tennis ball or larger sizes stones. Hail this size will damage roofs of just about any size, including metal tile, even concrete tile roofs. In 2016 stones the size of large grapefruit cane through the northeast section of Dallas County. There were many instances of stones penetrating the plywood roof deck and plunging through through ceilings. These storms damage far more than roofs. They can cause total damage to vehicles, wreck wood fences, crack pool decks, and crush outdoor furniture. Wind driven hail storms can cause significant damage to wood, vinyl, and aluminum siding. Large wind driven storms can even crack brick walls.
Homeowners frequently are unaware their roofs are hail damaged for a variety of reasons: they moved in after an older hail storm came through and the inspectors missed the damage; homeowners may have been away during the storm, or simply don’t believe their roofs were damaged, even though their neighbors are getting theirs replaced by insurance funds.
