Is your roof prepared? Colorado hail season is upon us, again! As in most areas prone to natural disasters, homeowners dread the season that is most active for each particular region. Every homeowner though, who has chosen the F-Wave Revia Shingles to re-roof, can breathe a sigh of relief because there is finally a roofing shingle that stands up to hail. So, if you decide you do not want to submit another hail claim, let’s introduce you to the shingle that is changing the way homeowners worry about their investment.
What Makes a Hailstorm?
When weather conditions are right strong currents of rising air take droplets of water up so high, they freeze and grow large enough to reach the ground. The stronger the updraft the larger the hail. Eventually the thunderstorms updraft cannot support the weight of the hailstone when it becomes large enough, and then it comes thundering down, on cars, roofs, anything exposed outdoors. This weather phenomena is nothing more than solid precipitation. Phenomena.org reveals that the average velocity of a falling hailstone is approximately 106 miles an hour.
Now that’s a bit scary, especially when hail can be accompanied by winds up to 130 miles per hour. They also note that the largest hailstone in the United States recorded was in 2010 in Vivian, South Dakota. This whopper was 8 inches in diameter, 18.5 inches in circumference, and weighed approximately two pounds.
Hail Strike has carefully developed a tool that “grades” a storm and then assigns a SCORE to help analyze violent storms. Several conditions and dynamics are taken in to affect in order to provide clear data. You can access the chart and interesting data here at the Hail Strike website.
