Hail Reported in Temple TX, Lampasas, and Harker Heights
This was a major storm in Central Texas, producing hail that fell across a wide area stretching from Lampasas through Harker Heights and into Temple, TX. Hail also fell in the southern portion of Killeen, which saw a major hail storm as recently as the end of October.
Hail fell hard and fast in many areas, particularly near Belton and Salado to the southwest of Temple. This hail was large and dense enough to cause significant property damage to homes and vehicles in the area, and many hail damage repair projects have already been scheduled throughout southwestern Temple, TX.
How Can I Spot Hail Damage?
If your home was in the path of this storm, chances are portions of your home exterior were damaged by falling hail. However, there are a few telltale signs you can look for that are clear indicators of hail damage. Signs of hail damage include:
- Missing or loose shingles – While not always a result of hail, missing or loose shingles are a clear sign of storm damage that should be repaired immediately. Shingles that are knocked out of place leave your roof’s underlayment vulnerable to moisture intrusion and major roofing issues, such as leaks.
- Dented siding or deck – We don’t advise climbing onto your roof, especially following a hail storm. However, if other portions of your home’s exterior are dented or dinged—including your siding or an exterior deck—there’s a strong likelihood your roof has been damaged as well.
- Asphalt granules near your home – Impacts from hailstones can knock the outer layer of granules loose from asphalt shingles. While a few granules aren’t cause for concern, a large amount of granules near your downspout or on the ground near your roof’s edge are a sign that hail did significant damage to your roof.
Act Fast to Repair the Damage!
You may be wondering if it’s necessary to schedule an immediate hail damage repair. While hail damage can vary in severity, the answer to this question is definitely yes! Leaving any amount of roof damage unaddressed is risky, as this can leave your roof vulnerable to moisture intrusion and other problems. Roofing issues tend to compound over time, so repairing your roof quickly is a cost-efficient way to make sure your roof is in excellent condition.
