San Antonio Hailstorm: A Homeowner’s Guide to Roof Damage Assessment


In San Antonio, hailstorms are a common occurrence, and they can wreak havoc on your home’s roof. From minor dents to significant damage, hail can compromise the integrity of your roof and lead to costly repairs if left unchecked. In this comprehensive guide, Stonehouse Roofers offers valuable insights and tips for homeowners to assess roof damage effectively after a hailstorm.


Identifying Hail Damage:

Hail damage to a roof can manifest in various ways, and it’s essential to know what signs to look for. One of the most common indicators of hail damage is dents or dimples on the roof’s surface, especially on metal components such as gutters, vents, and flashing. Additionally, inspect the shingles for granule loss, bruising, or fractures, which may indicate hail impact. Keep in mind that hail damage can vary in severity, depending on factors such as the size of the hailstones and the material of your roof.


Tips for Documentation:

Proper documentation of roof damage is crucial for filing insurance claims and ensuring you receive adequate compensation for repairs. When documenting hail damage, take clear photos of the affected areas from multiple angles, capturing close-up shots of any visible dents, punctures, or granule loss. Include timestamps in your photos to establish the timing of the damage. It’s also helpful to make notes detailing the size of the hailstones and the date of the hailstorm.


Importance of Professional Inspection:

While it’s essential for homeowners to conduct a preliminary assessment of hail damage, a professional inspection is necessary for a thorough evaluation. Stonehouse Roofers recommends scheduling a professional inspection to assess the full extent of the damage and identify any underlying issues that may not be immediately visible. Professional roofers have the expertise and experience to detect hidden damage and provide an accurate assessment of the repairs needed.
