roofing Fort Worth TX Hailstorm Damage


Hail is a threat for any roof, regardless its location. If you are lucky, hail will be small and not generate special problems, maybe only cosmetic. But if your luck turned its back on you, you may experience hail of large density and size, which can break, crack or scratch roofing materials.

All materials can be affected, especially brittle ones such as asphalt shingles, ceramic tiles, etc. Even metal tiles are not immune, although they tend to be more resistant in such conditions.  However, dents and scratches may come along with damage to the protective paint coating, which will lead, over time, to rust, corrosion and water infiltrations.

As a homeowner, it is good to know that there are still things you can do to minimize the impact of hail damage.

First of all, it is preferable to purchase a roof tested in hail conditions and certified as resistant to impact for roofing Fort Worth TX homes. If you cannot afford the higher price of such a roof, you can at least opt for ordinary materials that behave better than others in hail conditions. These include metal shingles, EPDM rubber, wood shingles and shakes, etc.

In addition, to reduce the impact of existing damage, you need to call a professional roofer to inspect your roof immediately after a hailstorm and make the necessary repairs promptly.
