HAIL - Yes, it happened again. North Texas got hit by hail for a second consecutive night on 6/13/2023. Depending on the area, hailstones as large as 4" in diameter were reported. 



HAIL - North Texas was hit by a pretty large storm on 6/12/2023 that produced plenty of hail.  Depending on the area, hailstones as large as 5" in diameter were reported. Just for reference, 1" hail, equivalent to the diameter of a US quarter, is widely considered large enough to cause damage. 1.50" hail, roughly the size of a ping pong ball, is enough to cause significant roof damage. 2.5" hail, equivalent to the size of a tennis ball, is more than capable of producing bodily harm. 4.5" hail is roughly the size of a grapefruit and is able produce holes in car roofs and penetrate directly through residential roof shingles AND roof decking. Stay safe out there and call us if you need an inspection or any other help!
