Mansfield TX Hail Storm

There was a huge hailstorm that blew through Mansfield and South Arlington a few weeks ago. The hail wasn’t really that big… a little bigger than marbe size. However, it blew in with such force that it just tore everything up.

My kids have a trampoline in the backyard that was shredded. The padding around the trampoline was ripped up. It looked just like a spa cover that had been through a hail storm. The foam padding that was around the safety poles was shredded too. It was a lot of fun to see that hail bounce off the trampoline. My only concern was it bouncing into my windows.

The other thing that got blew out was my front safety lights by the garage. They had a heavy, heavy glass covering. The covering was blown out and the light was exposed. Fortunately, the hail came in from the back of the house. So, it didn’t have a chance to dent my garage door all up.

The roof hardware is dinged and pinged to death. I don’t have any roof leaks, but I did find some shredded shingles on the side of my house while mowing the yard today. There are already a few roofing signs up in my neighborhood. You want to try and hire a mansfield tx roofer. I’m sure we’ll be getting several new roofs around here.

If you need help getting your roof replaced, pick up the phone and call me or fill out this form to get a quote. While I’m not actively involved in roofing anymore, I would be happy to point you in the right direction.

Peace,
Mike

    Hi Mark,

    That night was crazy. The hail came in so hard and strong. Many of the
    insurance adjusters that I’ve talked to have said that only one or two of
    the slopes on the roof are bad (because of the angle the hail came in at).
    Several adjusters only want to replace a portion of the roof. This is not a
    good thing for many reasons.

    However, many of the adjusters are open to replacing the whole roof if a
    good argument is presented to them. You’ll need to get an experienced
    contractor to help you get the whole roof replaced. My roof looks fine from
    the ground but when you get up there and look straight down at the shingles,
    you can clearly see where the hail knocked the granules off and left open
    places on the mat. Once the sun bakes the mat, the shingles will start to
    curl and let water in your house.

    Good Luck,
    Mike
