Recent storms have brought torrential rain, strong winds, and baseball-sized hail through the San Antonio area. These weather conditions caused widespread damage. Many homes with shingle roofs suffered hail damage from the storm. If your house was one of the ones that got hit, you need to call a professional roofer as soon as possible! Here’s why:
Storms can devastate a roof with their strong winds, driving rain, and flying debris. Downed tree limbs are another hazard; they can fall onto a home and crush part of the roof, leaving it vulnerable to water damage and structural collapse. Considering the storms that the San Antonio area has experienced, you or someone you know could need a roof inspection or repair.
Hail is a threat to roofs everywhere. This year, parts of North and Central Texas have seen an unseasonable amount of hail, with some stones over 3 1/2 inches in diameter! Violent hailstorms like these can punch holes through your roof, leaving it battered and susceptible to leaks. If your home was hit by hail, you definitely need to contact a professional as soon as possible!
Storm and Hail Damage on Shingle Roofing
Shingle roofing is a very popular choice for residences because of its affordability. However, it isn’t the most resilient roofing material when it comes to weathering storms. Wind, rain, and hail can all dislodge the shingles and send them flying. Missing shingles open up the underlying layers of your roof to rain damage. If the water soaks through enough layers of your roofing, you will end up with a leak inside your home — or multiple leaks!
