Hundreds of roofs dented by overnight hail

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The hail dented hundreds of roofs across the South Plains.

J Ferg Roofing says the damage is hard to spot unless you are close to the roof. The company assessed around 60 homes in southwest Lubbock and New Home Monday. The owner, J.R. Ferguson, says they saw everything from broken skylights to broken shingles. He says every house they looked at needs a new roof.

According to Ferguson, for every 100 square feet there needs to be eight shingles damaged for the roof to be completely replaced.

He says owners have one year to contact their insurance provider in order to get costs covered. If roofs are not replaced, Ferguson says, there could be leaks.
