When Hail Strikes Call The Pros in Albuquerque
Situated in beautiful north central New Mexico, Albuquerque has so much to offer. From the ancient ruins of the Ancestral Puebloans who shaped the land to the scenic hiking trails, lakes, fishing and parks, the great outdoors is very much a part of life here.
Unfortunately, the great outdoors can sometimes turn threatening, with severe storms that bring rain, lightning and hail damage Albuquerque residents can’t always avoid.
Hail isn’t the most common type of storm damage, but it can be one of the most severe. When hail strikes your home or business the results can be devastating.
At times like this, you need to know you’re not alone and that’s why you should call the professionals at SERVPRO

Since hail can do serious damage, it’s especially important to have professional help to handle its aftermath properly.
What Kind of Damage Can Hail Do?
Hail is the common name given to solid chunks of frozen rain or ice that fall during a severe storm. Hail stones can range from the size of a small pea to as large as a softball. Obviously, the amount of hail damage Albuquerque experiences will depend on the size of the individual stones, although even the smallest stones can have a devastating effect when they fall at high speed.
Not surprisingly, the biggest result of a hail storm is roof damage. Falling hail stones can cause dings and dents and wear away the protective granules on shingles.
It may not be easy to see the full extent of hail damage to your roof from the ground, which is why you should always contact professionals to safely take a close up look at your roof after a storm.
Hail can also cause significant damage to windows, which can easily be broken by larger hail stones that may reach speeds of up to 100 mph by the time they are hitting the ground.
When the glass in windows and doors is broken, that can leave your house susceptible to significant water damage, so you should cover any breaks as quickly as possible.
Other types of hail damage Albuquerque residents can sometimes experience includes dented or dinged siding, air conditioner units, chimneys and flue vents. Most of this damage is likely cosmetic but damaged siding can expose the wood underneath, which can then lead to rotting and structural damage.
