Considering hail resistant materials
There is not a whole lot you can do to ensure that your home will be 100% immune to hail. Some materials are not good under hail conditions. If you want to replace your roof, you might want to consider a material that is more resistant. Insurance companies in Texas realize the issue homeowners have, and to help them out, they offer insurance discounts if you purchase a roof with a higher impact resistance level. Storm damage repair is responsible for a good number of insurance claims homeowners in Texas have made this year. There are four different levels of material, with level four being the most resistant to weather conditions.
What Hail Can Damage?
Any part of the exterior of your home that has been damaged can be covered by your homeowners insurance. The following are ways that different materials can be damaged:
- Damage to the graininess of asphalt roofing. Wind conditions can tear off asphalt shingles.
- Dents in aluminum roofing and siding. Depending on the size of the hail, the dents can vary in size. If these dents are left alone, they might cause your roof or siding to rust.
- While hail does not generally put dents in vinyl siding, it can cause vinyl to crack. If winds get high enough during a storm, it can result in pretty big cracks in your siding.
- Damage to gutters, gutter guards, and skylights. If your gutters are dented, they might not work properly, and you might experience a leaky roof after awhile.
Some people might think that a few dings or scratches here and there aren’t worth a timely fixing. While it is true that some home improvement projects or repairs can take a while, it is ultimately worth it if your repairs are covered by insurance.

Damage After a Storm
Hail storms do not come through the Austin area very often, but when a hail storm does come through Austin it can leave a large amount of homes in the Austin area with roof damage. As a homeowner it is never fun to have to deal with the hassles of having new shingles put on your home. The problem with big storms coming through is not just the strain it places on you as a homeowner.
The real problem is that bad weather attract predatory companies that do shoddy work and cut corners. The large amount of damageby hail creates a large influx of work to be done and attracts contractors from many miles away. Many of these roofers are unlicensed and are not qualified enough to be doing roofing replacement work. Many times our company will get calls to repair or redo the work that some of these contractors have done. Make sure that you are spending the time to do proper research on any company that you hire especially if you are hiring them after storm damage.
Any roofer that you have hired should be registered with the state of Texas and have an active and up to date contractor license. Some contractors will let their license lapse and will not keep it up to date. If a contractor is not licensed you may be held liable for any injuries workers get while working at your home. You will also want to make sure that the contractor carries the proper amount of workers compensation insurance required by the state of Texas.
We will travel to areas like Dallas and Fort Worth to assist homeowners that have damaged roofs. We want to help homeowners avoid predatory contractors that are not there to work in their best interests or really help them. You already have a damaged roof which can be a headache the last thing you as a homeowner should have to deal with is having the work redone a second time because you were the victim of a crummy job the first time.
