Roof Hail Damage

Roof Hail Damage Conroe

If you’ve stayed in New England for any length of period of time, you’ve possibly had your reasonable share of nasty weather conditions. We consider ourselves troopers when it concerns weather calamities, from freak 5-foot snow storms to wind storms that can cause power blackouts. When a storm is coming close to us, we love to tease our southern brothers and sisters, especially Texans, concerning their inability to drive when a few snowflakes blow through the air; they panic and fret about needing to get stocked up “bread and milk and toilet paper” from the local grocery store. However, in spite of our fearlessness in enduring the wintertime weather, we have really no chance against the grainy precipitation that is HAIL! Thankfully, our location has actually not been belted by a major hail storm in a looooong time, but there were a couple of records of 1-inch hail falling in Essex County in 2020. In previous years, there were a lot more, bigger and much more hazardous hail storms. In Connecticut, for instance, there were 12 reports of hail storm falling in 2015, as well as ten occurrences in 2012. (These New Englanders do know just how to spin a great yarn!) We hope that this year’s hail storm season is not quiet like last year’s, yet it’s always best to be prepared..
