Unlike many other areas where hail is pretty much absent all year round, Austin TX has reports of hail every year. Despite some years when hail reports are fewer in number, other times the numbers can be as high as a dozen or two per year, as was the case for 2014 and as is looking to be the case for 2021 as well.
Of course, the frequency of hailstorms is not the only issue. Sometimes, even if there are only a few hailstorms in a year, one or two of them can be quite devastating. As roof repair Austin TX experts will tell you, it only takes one powerful storm to mess up your house and cause hundreds if not thousands of dollars worth of damages.
If you want to make sure your home is protected this year, as more hail storms are to be expected in the area, it’s very important to make sure that your roof, siding, windows and all other areas that are meant to keep hail and rain out of your house will be properly fortified. Make sure you contact the right contractors, have your roof and siding inspected at least twice a year, and ask for detailed written reports and estimates on what repairs could be done and which ones are the most urgent to perform.
