What Kind of Damage Can Hail Do to a Building or Property?
- Damage or tear off roof gutters or downspouts (both of which are necessary to keep water away from the outside walls and from the foundation).
- Remove or loosen roof shingles or tiles, chimney flashing, and more.
- Break windows, damage window treatments, allowing water and wind indoors.
- Tear holes in screens in windows or doors.
- Allow moisture in the foundation, under the roof, or in other areas.
The above are serious enough by themselves and require remediation, but they also allow water damage:
- When the hail melts, that water starts damaging whatever it touches, and since water travels, it touches a lot.
- If the water is present for over 24-48 hours, microbial growth develops.
- If the newly open areas aren’t repaired, more water will come in, possibly causing additional damage.

Time Out for Trivia!
Trivia isn’t always useless. At SERVPRO of Mission Valley East, the trivia is good information, often just unrelated to the topic.
Today’s stray-from-the-path journey led us to the question: “Do you feed a cold and starve a fever, or do you “starve a cold and feed a fever?”, a question that turns out to have two answers:
- Yes, which sounds useless, but means “eat if you’re hungry.”
- If you aren’t going to throw up, eat anyway because calories help you fight the illness from both fevers and colds, and fluids fight the dehydration from fevers and thin the mucus from colds.
Doctors recommend soup. Many doctors recommend chicken soup for those who aren’t vegetarians, making us wonder how many great-grandmothers got in on the research.
