San Antonio, Texas – A Hotspot For Hailstorms? – Thoughts from a San Antonio Roofing Company Owner
Hail storms seem to be a frequent occurrence here in San Antonio. One minute the sky is crystal clear, the next minute all hail broke loose and the ground is being pelted with golf-sized balls of ice. In 2016, San Antonio experienced a record-breaking hail storm that caused 1.36 billion dollars in damages. San Antonio has experienced two hail storms in 2019 so far, one in April and another in June that caused serious damage.

Once a Hail Storm Happens, What’s Next?
The initial reaction will be to check if loved ones are ok and if your cars are intact. Homeowners will typically observe the bottom of their residence for damage, but won’t always consider the state of the roof.
Most homeowners are usually not aware of hail damage on their roofs because there is an assumption that it is sturdy enough to sustain the damage, or that since there is a barrier needed to survey the damage that there isn’t a pressure to see if there is damage. Once a hail storm hits, we recommend that you immediately survey the damage. Take as many photos as you can of the damage, the more the better.
