Has Your Katy Roof Sustained Hail Damage?
As we enjoy the spring weather, be mindful that we are also in peak hail season through May. Although we have yet to experience severe thunder or hail storms, we won't be out of the woods for a while, so it’s a good idea to know what to look out for so you can address your Katy roof damage in a timely manner. Because of this, this article will break down some of the most common signs that hail damage has taken place on your roofing and what you can do to protect it.
Hail Damage On Your Roof Gutters and Downspouts
Hail primarily inflicts damage on structures by denting them due to the force at which the hailstones are falling. Contrary to what most homeowners believe, a small piece of hail can inflict damage. In fact, hailstones only need to be the size of a quarter to damage your gutters and downspouts.
Shingles Suffer The Most Katy Roof Hail Damage
We install multiple types of roof shingles on Katy homes, each of which is designed and built to withstand different levels of Katy weather damage. Hail damage to your roof shingles appears in different ways, but you can easily identify Katy roof hail damage if you see chipped areas/bald patches on your roof shingles. If you spot roof shingle granules in your gutters, this also suggests that hail may have struck your roof shingles and damaged them.
Addressing Katy Roof Hail Damage
Keep in mind that once your roof has been dented or shows bald spots anywhere, this means that the material has been compromised, making it easier for greater damage to take place. Roof damage tends to snowball, so it is imperative that you address it as soon as possible.
If your neighborhood experiences a hail storm, we recommend you first contact us for a free roof inspection. This gives us a chance to evaluate your roof for any damage, such as roof leaks, torn or curled roof shingles, bald spots, and even sagging areas.
