Oct 16, 2022

A herd of fast-moving hailstorms trampled Central Arkansas on Saturday, Oct. 15th, as commercial roof inspection services and repair specialists support property owners who sustain damage. Multiple storm fronts caused widespread roof hail damage that left commercial, agricultural, and institutional buildings leaking. RestoreMasters has field teams ready to assist with emergency roof repair efforts or conduct thorough inspections to support an insurance claim. Property owners that took hail strikes can contact the roof repair office in Tulsa, OK.

“A band of storms dropped hail on parts of Arkansas on Saturday, October 15,” according to Yahoo News. “The National Weather Service said it received more than 30 hail reports from across the region, with several measuring hailstones larger than 2 inches across, and one report of a 3-inch hailstone.”

Commercial building owners are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. When even mid-sized ice hits, it causes dents, cracks, loose flashing, and compromised flashing. A commercial roof inspection documents the roof hail damage and provides a reliable quote to file an insurance claim.

A local hail damage map shows numerous storms sweeping across Central Arkansas, impacting residential neighborhoods and business districts alike. The yellow areas point to ice up to 1.25 inches pelting Benton, England, Jacksonville, and others. The light orange over places such as Woodlawn and Route 7, below Hollis, sustained ice strikes up to 1.75 inches. But the dark orange shown east of Hot Springs indicates that hail up to 2.5 inches in diameter pounded rooftops.

It’s essential to take advantage of commercial roof inspection services following a hailstorm to identify even minor roof storm damage and file a claim. Hailstorms are the number one reason for roof damage insurance claims. RestoreMasters provided roof leak repair after a hailstorm pelted Northwest Arkansas on Friday, April 15, 2022.

Some roofing systems can be severely harmed by damage from heavy winds, tornadoes, or hail.

Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph.

The severity of roof damage depends on several factors including: type and age of roofing materials, presence of flying debris, roof shape and angle, building height and proximity to adjacent structures and the quality of original roof installation.

Getting a roof inspection & property damage assessment after severe weather like this is important for determining whether you need to address roof damage from hail or high winds.

Circumstances do not always allow for immediate repair of roof leaks. In the meantime, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can cover the roof or affected area with a tarp or with a durable plastic shrink wrap material, until such a time when more permanent repairs can be made. We need to stop more moisture damage, so we can prevent mold growth.

Even if you don't think your roof was damaged, you will want to get your roof inspected if your property falls anywhere within the hail damage map.

Some storm damage symptoms take time to appear.

And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
