Hail Damage Repair in Arlington

Protecting Texas Homes & Businesses from Hail

Hail can be difficult to predict. Many Texas storms produce hail, and although the typical size of hail varies, the stones don’t need to be the size of golf balls to damage your property. In fact, hail between 2.5 cm and 4.4 cm often causes damage, but stones larger than 2 cm are considered dangerous. Your roof is the first line of defense against inclement weather. Trust the roofers who can keep it working for you. Frazier Roofs & Gutters has been serving residents and business owners throughout Arlington and the surrounding areas since 1977.

How Do You Know If Your Roof Has Hail Damage?

Determining whether your roof has hail damage requires a thorough inspection. 

Here are steps to help you identify hail damage on your roof:

Safety First: Before inspecting your roof, ensure your safety. Use a sturdy ladder, wear appropriate footwear, and be cautious when climbing onto your roof. If you're not comfortable doing this yourself, consider hiring a professional roofer for an inspection.

Check After the Storm: Perform the inspection during daylight hours and after the hailstorm has passed. Look for hail damage when the roof is dry, as wet spots can make it challenging to identify damage.

Look for Visible Signs:

  • Inspect the Gutters and Downspouts: Check for an accumulation of granules in the gutters and downspouts. Loss of granules is a common sign of hail damage.
  • Examine the Shingles or Roofing Material: Hail can leave dents or bruises on shingles or roofing material. Look for circular or irregularly shaped depressions. These dents may or may not have cracks.
  • Check for Cracks: Examine the shingles closely for cracks, especially around the edges. Hail can cause cracks that may not be immediately visible from a distance.
  • Inspect Metal Roofing and Flashing: Metal roofs and flashing can also show dents and dings from hail impact. Check for any deformities or signs of impact.

Look for Indirect Signs:

  • Check for Water Stains: Inside your home, inspect the ceilings and walls for water stains or signs of water damage. Hail damage can lead to roof leaks.
  • Inspect the Attic: If you have attic access, look for daylight shining through the roof boards, which may indicate a hole or gap caused by hail.

Use a Professional Roofing Contractor: If you're unsure about the extent of hail damage or if you find any signs of damage, it's advisable to hire a professional roofing contractor. They have the expertise to conduct a thorough inspection and provide a detailed assessment of any damage.

Document the Damage: If you find evidence of hail damage, take clear photographs and notes to document the damage. This documentation will be useful when filing an insurance claim.

Contact Your Insurance Provider: If you have homeowner's insurance, contact your insurance company to report the hail damage and initiate the claims process. They will guide you through the necessary steps to file a claim and may require an inspection by their own adjuster.

Remember that hail damage can vary in severity, and even small dents or granule loss can lead to long-term roofing issues. It's essential to address any hail damage promptly to prevent further damage and potential leaks.

Can Hail Damage Be Invisible?

Yes, hail damage can sometimes be invisible or difficult to detect immediately, especially to an untrained eye. 

Here are some reasons why hail damage might not be immediately visible:

  • Damage to Underlying Layers: Hail can damage the underlying layers of your roofing material, even if the top layer (such as asphalt shingles) appears undamaged. Over time, this hidden damage can weaken the roof's structure and lead to leaks.
  • Hail Damage Size: The size and density of hailstones can vary widely during a storm. Smaller hailstones may not leave visible dents or bruises on the roof's surface, but they can still cause damage over time.
  • Roofing Material: Some roofing materials, like metal, may show hail damage more clearly due to dents or dings, while others, like asphalt shingles, may not immediately display visible signs of damage.
  • Granule Loss: Hail can knock off the protective granules on asphalt shingles, which may not be immediately noticeable. Over time, granule loss can lead to accelerated aging and deterioration of the shingles.
  • Damage Hiding in Plain Sight: Hail damage may be obscured by dirt, debris, or the angle of the roof. It may become more visible as the roof dries and debris is removed.
  • Subtle Cracking: Hail can cause subtle cracks in roofing materials that may not be immediately evident but can expand and lead to leaks over time.

Due to these factors, it's essential to have a professional roofing inspection after a hailstorm, even if there are no obvious signs of damage. 

Roofing experts can identify hidden damage and provide a thorough assessment of your roof's condition. Early detection of hail damage can help prevent more significant issues and potentially save you money on repairs in the long run.

When Do Hailstorms Happen in Texas?

Hail is common in Texas during the warmer seasons; the Texas hail season is usually between March and August. While it may seem counterintuitive that hail falls in warm weather, this often occurs because of the temperature differences in the atmosphere during storms. Bigger storms with more wind can create increasingly bigger hailstones, and with an average of 195 severe hail days per year in Texas, it’s important to make sure your roof is prepared.
