We kicked 2021 off with a winter storm of epic proportions, a trend that has only continued into the spring. Thus far there have been reports of major storms packing baseball-sized hail and gale force winds throughout central Texas, and beyond. If you or a loved one have been impacted by these storms, we encourage you to take steps soon to have your damage assessed and address any damage your property has sustained.

Your Home Exterior & Roof Hail Damage Experts

At DRC we specialize in home exterior and roof hail damage restoration. We have already met with dozens of property owners throughout San Antonio and Austin in order to assess their storm damage and help them determine their best course of action. In some cases, only minimal siding and/or roof repairs are necessary while others are in the process of completing insurance claims* for full roof replacements.

Hail that Packs a Punch

From Boerne to Liberty Hail, these storms have packed a major punch, leaving homes, businesses and automobiles riddled with costly hail damage.

Did You Know?

  • Hailstorms outpace tornadoes annually in the US 5 to 1. That means for every tornado that touches down, 5 hailstorms are reported.
  • It’s not the size that matters, it’s the density. That’s right, a small piece of dense hail can cause more damage to your property that a larger piece of soft hail.
  • Hail can fall at speeds ranging from 9 mph to 110 mph (177 km/h)

Hail Damage and Your Roof

Spotting hail damage can be difficult to the untrained eye. While some damage is easy to recognize, such as dents in flashing, gutters and siding, small divots in asphalt shingles can be hard to spot. Here are some examples of some of the roof hail damage we have recorded over the last couple of weeks in the wake of these major storms.

Time is of the Essence

When your property has been hit by major storm activity, to say that time is of the essence is an understatement. A small problem today can become a major issue if left unaddressed, especially as more storm activity is predicted. In addition to the risk of exacerbated property damage, not acting quickly can leave you unprotected from an insurance perspective. All homeowners’ policies include a statute of limitations when it comes to making a claim.  It’s critical to determine if you in fact have enough roof hail damage, or general storm damage for that matter, to substantiate making a claim as quickly as possible.
