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.

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.

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.

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. Several factors will determine the severity of roof damage: the height of the building and proximity to nearby structures, the quality of work by the original installers, the shape and angle of the roof, the age and type of roofing materials, and the impact from debris.

After a severe storm of hail or high winds, it is important to get your roof inspected, and have a property damage assessment report so that you can learn whether you have damage to your roofing system. If roof leaks are a problem, they need to be addressed immediately. Experienced roofing contractors can either cover the affected area (or the entire roof) with a tarp or with a durable shrink wrap plastic membrane until long-term repairs can be made. Preventing water intrusion will help stop mold from growing.
If your property was anywhere within the storm damage map, it would be best to get your roof inspected, even if you think your roof was not damaged. Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away. And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
