How Hail Affects Roofs In These Affected Areas of North Texas

If you live in these affected areas, when hail come down on a roof’s surface, granules in shingles may be lost. Granules serve three main purposes. They protect asphalt shingles from UV rays, provide added resistance against the elements, and add aesthetic beauty to your roof.

Hail can also crack shingles break through the substrate, and expose the felt that’s underneath. If this happens, there’s an increased risk of moisture getting into the underlying parts of the roof.

The granule-asphalt surfacing sometimes breaks away from the fiberglass mat. Hidden hail damage may be experienced if the fiberglass mat tears from the impact. It’s hidden damage that can also make shingles more likely to blow off during future storms or with high winds.

Damaged shingles may affect flashing around roof protrusions like chimneys and vents. Larger hailstones, like what came down recently in Allen, Frisco, McKinney & Prosper, could also cause damage to gutters and downspouts.

Signs of Hail Damage

Before calling on Allen, Frisco, McKinney, Plano and Prosper roofers, take a moment to go outside of your home or business to look for signs of hail damage. This can usually be done safely from the ground with a visual inspection. More obvious signs of storm damage that can usually be spotted with this type of inspection include:

• Missing granules
• Bruising and visible depressions
• Half circular or full circular cracks on your roof
• Dented flashing

Your Next Steps With Storm Damage?

In the event that you see any of these indications of roof damage, SPS Roofing can evaluate the state of your rooftop and decide the most proper approach to fix the damage. Give us a call and we will examine your rooftop to give you a suitable appraisal. CALL US NOW : 972.929.9944

We will also inspect other parts of your roof to look for hidden signs of damage that should be addressed sooner rather than later. Gutters and downspouts can also be checked for signs of problems, such as detachment from your roof.

For damage from hail, wind, or heavy rain that’s widespread, our Allen roofers, Frisco roofers, Plano roofers, Prosper roofers and McKinney roofers may recommend a re-roof, which is the placement of new shingles over the existing ones. If damage extends to underlying structures, a complete replacement may be a more cost-effective option.

Restore your peace of mind and call on our local roofers to perform a thorough inspection of your home or business roof that’s more extensive than what can be safely done without the proper equipment. If damage is detected, our experienced roofers serving the Allen, Frisco, McKinney, Plano & Prosper areas can recommend appropriate repairs. Should roof replacement be necessary, we’ll go over your options and offer an honest estimate before any work is done.
