Lots of unusual weather, including lots of hail this year in West Texas.
The most frequent question I'm getting lately is: "How damaged is the roof from hail, and should we have it replaced?"
Just because your town had a hail storm roll through does not mean your roof has *ANY* hail damage.
Just because the roofing contractor has a sign in the neighbors yard, does not mean your roof has hail damage.
Hail damage can depend on the size, quantity, and direction that the hail fell from the sky. It can also depend on the brand, style, age, and quality of the roof covering materials.
It may sometimes make sense to wait until spring/summer are past to replace your roof. (I mean, who wants to replace their roof twice in one year?)
It's rare to see a roof leak caused by hail damage.
Call your insurer as soon as you've found a home to put in a contract on. They'll likely send a rep out to check the roof themselves and make a determination on whether they'll insure it.
