Hail Damage in Wichita KS

4/18/2022 (Permalink)

In Kansas one of the top causes of roof and home damage is hail. Hail can not only harm property such as homes, businesses, and vehicles, but can cause harm to livestock, and even humans. Hail is formed by raindrops being carried upward by a thunderstorm's updrafts into extremely cold areas of the atmosphere and freezing. Even though it is cool to see, the sound of hail hitting your car and roof will make any person cringe.  

According to NOAA (National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration) hail causes around one billion dollars a year in damage. Last year, Kansas had over 20 thousand claims due to storm damage. If your roof or windows are damaged by hail, then that can cause leaks into your home or business, which can result in water damage.
