Everything is bigger in Texas, including the hail. If you live here, you’re probably no stranger to chunks of ice falling from the sky and causing damage to everything around.
However, the recent storm in Lubbock was a real doozy. On May 19th, 2018, golf ball to baseball-sized hail wreaked widespread havoc on roofs, cars and other property. Some people reported seeing hail as big as three inches in diameter! Fun fact: the largest hail ever reported in Lubbock was 4.5 inches in diameter.
Heavy rain and severe thunderstorms accompanied the hail, which hit south Lubbock the hardest. Some areas received between one and three inches of rain. Damage was widespread, and included broken skylights, dented cars and damaged streetlights. Area roofs took a serious beating, with lifted shingles, cracking and denting galore.
Remember, it’s important to take the time to find a reliable roofing company. Make sure to choose a great business if you need any roofing repairs. It’s also important to take care of roofing repairs as soon as you can—left untreated, hail damage can allow moisture to seep into your home through cracked shingles, causing even more headaches down the road.
