Storm Damage & Roof Repair in Highland Park

Each spring and autumn, the transitional seasons, cold fronts moving in from the north collide with warm humid air coming in from the warmer Gulf Coast. This leads to severe thunderstorms with lightning, torrential rain, hail, and the occasional tornado.

Hail Damaged Roof In Highland Park, Texas?

When it comes to roofing, hail is the most common threat in Highland Park. The Hail Scale includes 5 sizes: pea, penny, golf ball, baseball, and grapefruit. The bigger the hail, the more severe the storm. Once hail reaches golf ball size, the risk of roofing hail damage increases. This is most common in April and June. These violent storms cause billions of dollars in losses to Dallas homes and businesses every year. In 2016 about 4 Billion dollars was paid out by insurance companies in the state of Texas alone.

Even without hail, a severe storm can cause a great deal of damage to a roof. Wind damage is a real concern. The corners, edges, and ridgeline are especially vulnerable to wind damage. In Highland Park, slate, metal, shake and luxury shingles are all used regularly. All of these are high-quality materials, however, they all can fall victim to the strong Texas winds requiring roof repairs or possibly roof replacement.

Winds also can cause debris such as tree limbs, outdoor furniture, or garbage to blow onto a roof, causing punctures and tears. Average speed during a Dallas thunderstorm is about 22-31 MPH. For a thunderstorm to be designated as “severe,” wind speeds much reach 58 MPH. Consider a tree branch hitting your roof at 60 MPH; the risk of damage becomes pretty high. North Texas averages 13-18 severe thunderstorms per year. This is why Baker Roofing & Construction Inc. is your storm damage roofing and construction specialist.
