Residents in Bismarck, ND, were reeling after a pair of hailstorms pounded rooftops on Thursday, July 21st. With early weather forecasts calling for only a 20 percent chance of rain, the massive late-day hailstone strikes caught people in residential neighborhoods and business districts off guard.

“The Bismarck Mandan area went into a Severe Thunderstorm Warning at 4:15 pm Thursday afternoon. That storm brought heavy rain to northeast Bismarck and dropped hailstones as big as tennis balls as reported by the National Weather Service,” US 103.3 FM radio reported. “Our studios in Mandan saw very little rain, but we did have an impressive hail outburst at about 4:45 as hailstones as big as golf balls were pounding the strip (including my truck).”

RestoreMasters has commercial roof inspection services and emergency repair teams in the area. Property owners impacted by hard ice hits are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. Hail making impact at high speeds dents metal panels, cracks shingle, and tears flat roofing systems, leading to water damage.

A local hail damage map shows long bands of intense weather sweeping across North Dakota from I-94 to Route 12. The yellows sections show hail up to 1.25 inches in diameter making ground fall. The light orange areas point to ice stones as large as 1.75 inches inflicting hail damage on roofs and automobiles. But the dark orange swaths over Bismarck, New Salem, and Breien indicate ice chunks upwards of 2.5 inches inflicted heavy hail property damage.

The National Weather Service high wind and hailstorm damage map for Thursday, July 21st, shows concentrated storm systems over North Dakota, South Dakota, New England, New York, Alabama, Mississippi, and the Carolinas. All told, the country experienced 342 high-wind storms and 91 hailstone incidents during a 24-hour period. Mainstream news outlets and social media reports indicate Bismarck, North Dakota, and the surrounding area suffered extensive hail damage on roofs.

  • Bismarck: The Capital took a relentless hailstone beating of more than 30 minutes. The largest chunks of hard ice rivaled the size of tennis balls and likely left a wake of roof damage.
  • Fredonia: One-inch hail pelted agricultural structures and left significant crop damage.
  • Jamestown: Social media reports indicated hailstones nearly the size of hen eggs battered the region.
  • Kulm: Hail the size of quarters blanketed Mcintosh County.
  • Lincoln: Hail the size of hen eggs pelted automobiles and commercial roofs.
  • Moffit: Hailstone strikes the size of limes pounded the area, resulting in property and roof hail damage.
  • Napoleon: Eyewitness reports cited golf ball-sized hammering Logan County.

  • Zeeland: Wind speeds of 65 mph were accompanied by heavy rains.

Opting for a commercial roof inspection remains a critical step following a hailstorm. Roof damage in the form of cracked panels, torn shingles, or loosened sealants leads to water damage and hazardous mold growths. RestoreMasters worked diligently to implement emergency roof repair and inspection services after South Dakota and Iowa suffered through the catastrophic derecho storm on July 5, 2022.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems.

Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged.

Roof damage can be severe or mild, depending on various factors which include: materials used on the roof, impact of debris, building height and proximity to other buildings, age, angle and shape of the roof and type of roofing.

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.

Get your roof inspected, even if you think there is no problem, especially if your property falls anywhere within the area of the hail and wind damage map.

Some storm damage symptoms take time to appear.

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