Hail on the Ground Hail can come in many different shapes and sizes, but you don’t want any of it hitting your roof.

Oh, hail! Hail can come in many different shapes and sizes, but you don’t want any of it hitting your roof. The recent unpredictable weather in Texas has brought forth hail as a problem. The hail havoc can become pretty costly with roof repairs and potential structural issues. Fortunately, this is where we step in! One can take precautions to help your roof survive possible hail storms. Here are five preventative measures to help prolong your roof’s lifespan.


  1. Roof Materials: Consider materials that will withstand hail and other weather conditions when installing or replacing your roof. We all want a beautiful roof, but why not have an effective one as well?

  2. Roof Structure: It all starts with the structure. Ensuring a sturdy roof structure can enhance the roof’s ability to withstand impact. This includes proper roof decking, strong sheathing, and well-secured trusses or rafters.

  3. Overhanging Branches: Say bye, bye, bye to those overhanging branches in your yard! Trees near your roof can result in a significant potential hazard. Overhanging trees can cause damage to your roof when strong winds and hail are involved. Be sure to trim them to avoid the risk!

  4. Gutters: Clogged or damaged gutters are a big problem when it comes to hail. It can worsen hail damage to your roof and cause leaks, water backup, and deterioration.

  5. Roof Inspections: It is always important to get regular roof inspections, but with recent unpredictable weather patterns, getting your roof checked out is even more critical. If you call us, we can check for pre-existing vulnerabilities, wear and tear signs, or areas needing a makeover.


By implementing these preventative measures, you can significantly reduce the risk of damage to your property from hail-related issues. Be sure to invest in your roof like any other valuable asset.
