Default Hail! Size??

How big of hail does it take to damage a roof?
We got hammered by golf ball to ping pong size hail for about 10 minutes
Wife wants to call some to inspect, I don’t think it was that bad to get panicked
San Antonio got baseball size in parts

I would be getting it looked at with that size. We had multiple hail storms over 20 years here, but the last straw was the one with golfball sized hail. Jacked up the whirly birds and vents as well

Default Hail! Size??

It depends on the roof type, age, size and type of hail, etc. however, ping pong to golf ball size hail WILL damage your roof. If you got hit with this stuff today, your roof is most likely compromised.

You should have it checked by someone that isnít afraid to say ďnoĒ.

Hop up and take a look!

Same storm came through Boerne. Lots of golf ball sized hail were bouncing around. A few of my neighbors had their roofs replaced since the last hail storm a month ago or so. And the hail that time was much smaller. This time the vehicles were damaged as well..You will need a new roof.

Had similar, got on roof and looked and could not see anything. Happens I have a friend who is well experienced in that kind of thing. He was on roof less than a minute and said I needed roof. Then he showed me what he was looking at and I could suddenly see the damage.

Get an adjuster to take a look

Couple years ago we had golf ball to tennis ball size and my roof was fine but several of my neighbors had theirs replaced. Seemed like a get rich quick scheme for the roofers.

I canít count how many adjusters get on the roof, walk around and donít write up damages. With Allstate for instance, we tell all of our customer to expect the first inspection to be denied.

If you get denied the first time, regardless of the company, always call for a reinspection.

In short, donít take your insurance companyís paid advice. Get someone that you trust to look at it first. Insurance companies arenít paid to pay you.

We had dime to quarter size last night. My house/roof is less than 3 years old. I can't see any signs of damage from visual ground inspection. When similar hail hit my 15 year old roof in Cypress, you could see shiny black where the aggregate was knocked off the shingles plus chunks and corners knocked off shingles in places.
When a reputable roofing company comes around to offer a free inspection, I will let them but I'm not calling in on this one. Amica has been pretty good to us and didn't hesitate on a new roof for my last house.

Last time the hail rolled through SA I had to get a new roof. TBH member Chootem (Brad Wilson) did an awesome job on my roof. He got me taken care of quickly and he was great to work with. You should reach out to him at 210-324-8018.

1" hail is usually where it will start to damage shingles. Lots of variables though. Age and condition of shingle, wind speed, wind direction, density of the hail, etc...

I have had 2 roofs in the past 5 years from hail. Both times called my insurance company, they inspected and wrote me a check on the spot.

That will cause plenty of damage; golf ball/ping pong ball. I used to be in the insurance business and that will bruise/split shingles every time.

I wouldnít panic but I would call your insurance adjuster and if they say no then a roofing contractor for a free estimate/evaluation.
