Oh, hail! Swiss Avenue rooftops damaged in storm

If your home sustained damage in Wednesday night’s hail storm, just be glad if you don’t have a skylight. Kevin and Marta Sprague of Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters told me the skylight in the kitchen of their Hollywood Heights home came crashing down, and then it hailed in their kitchen.

Right now, a news helicopter is making circles around Lakewood. It’s a WFAA chopper, and they just posted a story showing extensive hail damage to the tile and terracotta roofs of the Swiss Avenue Historic District.

    Many of my neighbors have broken skylights. They are having to wait a while even to get estimates on replacing roofs & skylights. Even getting my windshield replaced is not scheduled until next Friday. And I see an endless parade of roofing repair trucks, glass & window replacement trucks & yard clean-up people all over the place. So far have also had more than 6 business cards left on my door. My caution to others is make sure the people you are dealing with are reliable, bonded companies, etc. And get referrals.
