Roofing for Wind & Hail Damage in Dallas-Fort Worth From April 28, 2021 Storms
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
RestoreMasters emergency roofing and repair teams deployed from offices in Addison into the Dallas-Fort Worth area after strong storms dropped damaging hail on Wednesday, April 28th, when a storm bombarded Terrant county and the surrounding area. Many property owners reported significant hail damage to vehicles, siding, windows and roofs.
Reports of hailstones falling poured in from all over the state of Texas, including Coke, Coleman, Val Verde, Howard, Kinney, Real, Uvalde, Stonewall, Medina, Parker, Tarrant, Bexar, Throckmorton, Denton, McCulloch, Comal, Hays, and Kerr counties. The National Weather Service also reported an EF1 tornado in Medina county that was on the ground for over 2 miles, with 110mph+ winds causing severe property damage.
It only takes a 1″ or above diameter hail stone to cause damage to asphalt shingles, and NBCDFW Channel 5 reported hail as large as baseballs, with the largest reported at over 3” in diameter in Keller. Small hailstones typically produced by severe thunderstorms can fall 25-40 miles per hour. Hail 2-4” in diameter can reach speeds as fast as 70mph. Roof damage from hail and high-speed winds often goes unnoticed until property owners start seeing leaks or cracks.
Local hail maps indicate the most intense part of the hailstorm was a band just north of Fort Worth, Texas. The band stretched along Highway 121, with hailstones 1.5” or larger (orange and red) falling on the Melody Hills and Colleyville areas. Hailstones 2.5” and bigger (purple) were centered over the Watauga and North Richland Hills communities.
In addition to hail, strong winds can be incredibly destructive on roofing systems. Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour. The severity of damage depends on several factors including: type and age of roofing materials, presence of flying debris, roof shape and angle, building height and proximity to adjacent structures and quality of original roof installation.
After a storm like this, it's important to have your roof professionally inspected to determine whether or not you have roof damage from hail or wind. If leaks area occurring, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) is covered with a durable shrink wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place.
Even if you don't think your roof was damaged, you may want to get your roof inspected (especially if your property lies within hail map charts). Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away. And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
