You must not neglect roof damage from hail
The roof condition is as critical to a building as the condition of its foundation. Texas is a state of hail, rain, storm, snow, and sunshine, so the roof serves the very tough purpose of giving cover from the strongest elements of nature. A strong, durable roof will keep the building structure protected for decades, but it requires regular maintenance and care to ensure its longevity. Even top-quality roofs can get severely damaged after a strong hailstorm. You can observe signs of disrepair from a cursory inspection before calling in the experts. Some common signs that can spell deeper signs of damage are –
- Dampness of wall
- Debris on the roof
- Water pooling in some sections of the roof
- Damp attics or basement
- Damage on building structure
All these may appear latent or unrelated issues, but they are likely to be apparent roof damage and must be addressed presto to ensure that the structure does not get critically damaged.
Professional Roof inspection
We offer professional inspection by our roof inspectors who have all the right qualifications and years of experience. They are thorough in the latest regulatory requirements and understand the travails of weather and the likely problems that are caused after a storm. We have latest equipment for deep inspection of the roof to identify internal damages too. While a cursory first-hand inspection can be done by the building maintenance to spot obvious signs of damage, our roof inspector will come equipped with drones and thermal 3D model that help us spot internal damage. This helps in spotting the damage occurring under the outer layer of the roof covering without disturbing or damaging it. Thus, we drastically reduce the roof repair and replacement costs. With our advanced technologies, the reports are generated faster and accurately, which helps in raising insurance claims and getting faster reimbursements where roof repair or replacement cost is high.

Where the weather is concerned, err in the side of caution
It inadvisable to leave the roof unchecked after a hailstorm as the continuous pelting of the hail is likely to injure some parts of the roof. Also, once the hail settles or gets lodged a part of the roof, it will melt and seep through the roof, causing deeper damages. The roof is out of sight, and it is easy to overlook its condition in the face of the debris that accumulate around the building. if there are trees in the vicinity of the building there is a likelihood of branches falling or leaves blowing onto the roof causing blockage in the gutter or damage to the roof parts.
If caught early, one can get away with repair, which will be cost effective even if there is need for extensive repairs. If the damage is deeper, it is better to get the roof replaced and that would be comparatively cost-effective when one considers the extensive damages that may be caused to the walls.
