Commercial Roof Hail Damage
In the great state of Texas, Hail Storms are one of the most common reasons for Commercial Roof Damage. In North Texas we can almost count on at least one major Hail Storm each Spring, and if your Commercial Building is an unfortunate target of Large Hail, you can be certain significant Hail Damage has occurred.
Hail measuring at least 1 inch in diameter can cause enough damage to compromise most Commercial Roofing Systems. If you’ve lived in North Texas long enough, you know that Hail Storms are frequently capable of producing much larger Hail Stones resulting in devastating structural damage.
Even one Hail Storm can cause enough damage to compromise the integrity of a Commercial Roof, so one can imagine the issues that can arise after a few years of storms with delayed Commercial Roof Maintenance. It is extremely important to have your Commercial Roof professionally inspected by a qualified Commercial Roofing Contractor after any type of Hail Storm.
Roofing Materials For Hail Damage Prevention
Commercial Roof Hail Damage can be mitigated with a proper roofing material. Depending on the type of Commercial Roof, Rubber Roofing is a great Hail Resistant product manufactured from recycled materials. It is very low maintenance and comes with several advantages, including durability and energy efficiency.
Stone Coated Steel Roof
If a Rubber Roofing System isn’t an option, Stone Coated Steel is an outstanding choice for Hail Protection. Its rigid structure provides extra strength and the Stone Coating provides an attractive finish with styles that mimic many classic roof designs.
Commercial Roof Hail Damage Inspections
It is important to assess the extent of hail damage to your Commercial Roof by carrying out a Professional Commercial Roof Inspection. It’s easy to assume that because you don’t observe any interior leaks or obvious damage from the ground, that your roof was saved from Hail Damage. With Hail Damage, what you don’t know can and will hurt you in the long run.
Traces of hail damage to the roof are visible at the downspouts, and these areas require careful inspection. If the damage is severe, you will be able to file an insurance claim, although the extent of damage needs to be determined by a Professional Roofing Contractor.
What To Do When Your Roof Has Been Damaged By Hail.
Most damage caused by hailstorms is cosmetic and generally won’t have any immediate effects on your commercial roof. However, over time minor cosmetic damage can lead to more significant damage when allowed to go without repair. Through the course of a year, temperatures change, wind exposure, and debris can exacerbate minor damage.
If the damage has caused leaks, exposed areas should be sealed with tarps, and it’s advisable you contact the storm restoration services of a professional roofing contractor to quickly repair any known Commercial Roof Damage.
