On Sunday, March 31st a wicked thunderstorm ripped through parts of San Antonio. The fast moving storm included the usual lightning, rain, and thunder, but in some areas of the city, it also dropped some pretty large hail. Hail stones can be pretty vicious and as you can see in the photo, we got quite a bit.
After a hail storm, it is a good idea to go out and check your home and any other property that was exposed. Oftentimes, a hailstorm leaves damages on the roof, siding and windows. Hence, homeowners affected by the hailstorm will need professional roofing repair services from trusted residential roofing contractors while others will work on DIY repairs. However, DIY repairs can save you a lot of money, but if you don’t really know what you’re doing you may end up causing more damage, so it is recommended to hire a professional roofing service. Many insurance companies will allow you to claim the hail damage to your roof or your car, so mark down the time of the storm, the damage done (photo documentation is always a good idea), and call your insurance company to see if you’re covered. If not, you can ask for help from insurance adjusters like lmrpublicadjusters.com. Many San Antonio residents use a good hail storm as a chance to replace their roof when damage occurs.
