Fort Worth roofing can be pretty resilient, and a good metal roof installed by a team from an experienced Fort Worth roofing company will be as durable as a roof can get. However, when faced with a powerful hail storm, even the newest and best roofing systems can sustain some damage.
Metal roofing can be installed in a number of ways, either through the setup of metal roof shingles and tiles that look similar to asphalt or slate roofing, or through the installation of metal sheets typically used for flat roofing. As expected, the design will determine a great deal about how much damage the hail storm will do and how easy or hard it will be to repair.
Hail storms will typically cause less damage to sloped residential roofs, simply because the slope will allow the hail to be deflected, and the impact won’t usually be direct. That can change if the pieces of hail are smaller and easily blown by the wind at an odd angle. In such a case, your roof could be bombarded by hail and damaged on one side.
Flat metal roofs in Fort Worth are more prone to direct impact, but because the metal sheets are large enough, the damage will typically be minimal. Unless the coating was previously damaged or your flat roof has sustained wear and tear or was affected by rust, you won’t usually have much to worry about.
