Hail damage to your roof and shingles

Severe weather and hail cause serious damage to homes every year in Parker County. Hail can cause cosmetic and functional damage to your roof and roof components. The hail can cause dents and bruising that will reduce the service life of your roof. It will accelerate the deterioration and degranulation of the roof shingles and will allow water to start leaking as time goes on. This leaking and moister will weaken and rot the roof’s plywood decking. It can also begin to develop mold. As time progresses these roof leaks caused by the hail can even become significant enough that you start to see staining on your ceilings or even dripping water. Hail can also cause damage to your windows, gutters, fencing, siding, and other areas of your home.

Don’t let hail damage go unaddressed. Our team is ready to inspect your roof and determine what is the best action to ensure you don’t have long-term issues from any hail damage on your roof.

Do you think your roof has hail damage?

Sometimes a storm may be so severe and hail so large that it leaves no doubt your home and roof have been damaged by hail. When this happens the best thing to do is notify your insurance company as soon as possible to being the insurance repair process. 

However, other times you may be unsure if you have damage. If this is the case you can reach out to our team and we will come by and take a close look to see if any storm damage is present. 

Additionally, there are several things you can look at as well to try and verify if your home or rood does in fact have signs of hail damage.

Where to inspect your home and roof for hail damage

When you think your roof may be damaged by hail but the signs are less obvious, here are a few things you can take a look at to see if you could have hail damage and may need our team to do a more detailed inspection. 

Can hail damage on your roof be repaired?

The Short Answer Is MAYBE

In some cases, if the damage is so insignificant or minor, it might be possible to just repair a few hail-damaged shingles or roof components.

The Best Answer Is PROBABLY NOT

Having a situation where only a few shingles and no other parts or components of the roof are damaged would be extremely unusual. So the likely hood of this situation occurring is very improbable. 

The Long Answer Is IT’S NOT RECOMMENDED

Although some insurance companies, as well as some roofing contractors, might suggest that a repair is possible, the truth is it is not.  Your roof works together as a cohesive system. Anytime you start to remove and replace shingles you are disturbing the continuity of the roof itself. Each shingle is bounded together and you are jeopardizing the integrity when individual shingles are removed or replaced. 

Consider The Following Points:

    • Imagine trying to find every single shingle with a hail stone dent or bruise that needs to be replaced, and then actually one by one removing and replacing each one. How can you be sure you even got everyone? When an insurance carrier says you only need 100 shingles replaced, do they mark those so the contractor knows exactly which ones? 
    • If you have an RCV (replacement cost value) insurance policy, you are supposed to be made whole at the cost of REPLACEMENT. Your home didn’t have a mixed match repaired roof before. You didn’t have shingles that were not sealed well because some were removed and replaced. You didn’t have a roofing system that had been compromised. Why would you accept that now?

When your roof has been damaged by hail make sure you truly have a roofing professional and advocate on your side who is knowledgable and trustworthy. Be cautious when being direct toward a repair. Yes, there can be some circumstances where a roof repair from hail damage might make sense. However, as a general rule, it doesn’t and if you have hail damage the entire roofing system should be replaced

common roofing questions about hail damage

Yes, your homeowner’s insurance should cover hail damage to your roof.  In almost all situations your homeowner’s insurance policy will cover your roof if it is damaged by hail. Unless for some strange reason you have a policy that specifically excludes your roof or hail damage, you should be covered. 

Yes, it is required by Texas State law HB2102 Chapter 707 took effect 9/1/2019 and made clear that homeowners must pay their deductibles and that insurance companies can withhold the funds to repair the home to enforce this.  

We understand some contractors, will say otherwise or offer this to homeowners, however, this is insurance fraud. 

Because we understand sometimes money can be tight, or you might have cashflow issues, we have options in place to help finance the deductible for your roof. 

Hailstorms can cause significant damage to a home’s roof. When a hailstone impacts a roof it can cause bruises or cracks to roof shingles. This can cause immediate loss of granules or cause the shingles to lose granules over time. This will expose the asphalt under the granules which will degrade from UV exposure. Eventually, this will lead to roof leaks. 

How can you check for hail damage on your roof and what does it look like?

  • Random damage from hail strikes on the roof with no obvious pattern.
  • Hail hits on the roof that looks black in color (from the granules being knocked off and exposing the asphalt).
  • Clear signs of degranulation and finding the granules from the shingles around your home and in your gutters.
  • Being able to see the shingles shiny fiberglass matting.
  • Feeling a soft spot or a bruise on the shingle where you suspect a hail stone impact happened.

In most cases, hail needs to be around three-quarters of an inch 3/4″ in diameter, or the size of a quarter, to cause enough damage to warrant an insurance claim and replacement. Hail stones this size will cause dents and bruising to your shingles leading to eventual roof and shingle failure. 

Hail larger than one inch 1″ in diameter will often cause obvious and clearly observable damage and requires immediate replacement.

Hail larger than one inch 1″ in diameter will often cause obvious and clearly observable damage and requires immediate replacement. 

No. Texas State law and TDI (Texas Department of Insurance) make clear that this is not allowed and insurance companies cannot raise your rates based on filing a claim for natural or weather-related claims. 

Yes, some roofs can withstand hail damage. 

Factors that determine if your roof can withstand hail damage include:

  • The material covering the roof (shingles, metal, synthetics). 
  • The quality of the roof materials. Some metal roofs are made from thicker metal and some shingles are made to be hail resistant. 
  • The age of the roof will also determine if the roof is damaged by a hail storm. An older roof that has been weathered over time is more likely to suffer damage as it is more worn from the elements. 
  • The size of the hail stones themself. If it’s small hail the chances are less likely your roof suffers damage.
