Hail Leaves Homes And Businesses Across Collin County Damaged

PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) – Homes and businesses across Collin County are wearing the battle scars from Friday night’s hail storm.

Dealerships across Plano looked like graveyards for cars the day after hail came crashing down, shattering glass and leaving pockmarks everywhere. Before the storm moved south James Havens’ home in Prosper took an early beating.

“It was like baseballs falling out of the sky just slamming against the house and the concrete,” Havens said.

Homes throughout his neighborhood needed tarps to cover large sections of roof. It’s just a temporary fix until roofers can do full replacements.

“I think probably just in my mind, it’s probably best just to take care of it as soon as possible,” Havens said.

Some homes have already started replacements because of damage from last month’s hail storm. But roofer Brandon Luby warns homeowners not to act too fast.

“I do advise people to wait until after hail season’s over. Give it about another month, a month and a half at the minimum because like I said, I saw roofs go on yesterday and the day before that will be getting repaired after the storm once again,” Luby said.

That’s the advice he gave his own mother. Donna Luby says she knows she needs a replacement, but she’s asking her sons to wait until summer to get to hers.

“They’re replacing probably most of the roofs in this neighborhood. I’ll probably be last on that list,” Donna Luby said.

    The problem with that guy telling people to wait for repairs is if you wait, you aren’t doing every thing you can to protect your home. If you have hail damage, you roof may leak, then you sustain more damage to the substructure or the interior of your home. If that happens, your insurance company can simply deny your claim because you didn’t protect your home as per your insurance policy. You HAVE to do everything possible to protect your home from further damage, if you don’t, later claims may be denied, or your insurance company can drop your insurance. Don’t be foolish, make your claim on your roof, get repaired….ASAP.
