Brookshire Texas Hail Damage

Brookshire Texas Hail Damage
Brookshire Texas Hail Damage

Brookshire, Texas. Wednesday morning from about 1:00 until about 3:00 there was a major thunderstorm over much of the Houston area. Hit the hardest by the storm, which produced large chunks of hail, was the town of Brookshire. Located just West of Houston near Katy, TX is Richmond, Texas where one resident reported

…the storm woke us early as the sounds of hail striking the roof and cars alerted us of the severity of the storm. Having witnessed the damage from the tornado that tore through Joplin, hail always sends up red flags as it is a precursor to tornado’s in many cases.

Fortunately there was no tornado reports but there was significant hail damage in Brookshire Texas

What Causes Hail Damage Like That In Brookshire Texas

Hail is formed in the upper atmosphere and falls as large, layered ice particles. These chunks of hail are often spherical in shape, and they are produced by thunderstorm updrafts. Hailstorms form within unstable air masses, where temperatures are equally unstable. These unstable conditions produce large updraft speeds which are fast enough to keep a developing hailstone from falling to the ground. These hail stones would seem to be juggling in the upper atmosphere as they grow in size, layer by layer.

In a hailstorm, and in all thunderstorms for that matter, the small ice particles that form high in the atmosphere above the freezing level collect either rain water or cloud water on them, forming a water shell that freezes. These ice particles, under the right conditions, recycle in updrafts and take on layer after layer of ice until the ice particles either become too large for the storms updraft to carry them, or they get caught in a downdraft, and they finally plummet to the ground.

It is when ice falls to earth that we terrestrial beings experience hail damage. If you can imagine the sound of dropping ice into a tea glass and then image that that speed increased to the rate of terminal velocity and you get hail damage. Hail will strike roofs, break windows, damage siding, destroy wood fascias and cause all kinds of damage to landscaping and other things around your property, including vehicles, mail boxes, children’s play structures and more.

    Hail damage was pretty bad in Brookshire area. Just thankful that there was not more damage. Did I hear you correctly….that you can get up to 750% more on an insurance claim…why doesn’t my insurance company just give me the maximum they can and keep me as a loyal customer? May have you come out and take a look.

      You are correct, in fact, that statistic came from an article in Florida and was a quote from a Supreme Court Justice! The fact of the matter is that a Public Adjuster is more experienced in helping their clients get more on an insurance claim than they would otherwise get on their own. This is partly because of the keen insight that a Public Adjuster has with insurance companies, but also the ability that an adjuster has to recognize things that the insurance company may fail to see in the initial assessment. In all fairness to the insurance companies, after a major storm they are likely taking claims from several of their clients and when they are overwhelmed some things might fall through the cracks. This is why it is smart to hire a Public Adjuster, and get another opinion and fair assessment of real damages. But to answer your questions insurance companies don’t just put everything on the table up front, the reality is that you can negotiate a fair claim settlement. The problem is, most people don’t and they settle for the first thing the insurance company offers. Having an expert like Randell Smith Public Adjuster handling your claim means that you have someone that is working for you to to try and help you get the best possible fair claim settlement. Hope that answers your question. And please give us a call, we would love to come out and take a look at your damages.
