After another devastating hailstone strike pounded Lincoln, NE, on Thursday, June 16th, property owners are trying to navigate the worst month of roof hail damage since 2014. The recent storm cracked shingles, dented metal roof panels, and tore into flat roofing systems. RestoreMasters has commercial roof inspection services and repair teams onsite.

“Farm fields have been leveled, homes have been battered, and windows blown out as a series of windstorms and hailstorms moved through. This year’s continuous outbreaks of hail are the result of storms riding into Nebraska along the edge of the heat dome that has been suffocating vast swaths of the country this spring and summer,” according to the Omaha World-Herald. “American Family Insurance, a major insurer in Nebraska, has received 6,200 claims for wind and hail damage this year, with about 4,000 coming in June.”

Commercial building owners are advised to request a complimentary roof inspection following a storm to fast-track insurance claims and secure rooftops. Hail the size of a quarter can crack shingles and panels, making them susceptible to a leaking roof. Water damage to support beams and load-bearing walls can prove costly when unchecked.

A local hailstorm damage map indicates at least seven fronts congregated around Lincoln, NE, leaving residents in need of emergency roof repair. The yellow sections show ice stones up to 1.25 inches in diameter pelting automobiles and rooftops. Light orange hovering over cities and towns such as Malcolm, Prairie Home, and Woodland Hills, saw hailstone strikes as large as 1.75 inches causing hail damage on roofs. And the dark orange north of Lincoln points to hail up to 2.5 inches smashing into automobiles and roofs at a high velocity.

​The National Weather Service high wind, tornado, and hail property damage map for Thursday, June 16th, shows a storm cluster over Southeast Nebraska, Illinois, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, with isolated storm fronts across the country. All told, two tornados, 357 high wind incidents, and 73 hailstone strikes inflicted widespread roof damage. Traditional and social media reports highlight the severe hail damage to roofing systems in the Lincoln, NE, area.

  • Crete: Quarter-sized ice-peppered areas of Saline County before midnight.
  • Lincoln: Multiple hailstone dropping occurred in Lancaster County, ranging from half-dollar-sized ice to chucks larger than hen eggs.
  • Malcolm: Hail the size of golf balls blanked the community.
  • Maytown: Quarter-sized hailstone strikes occurred after 9 pm.
  • Dunbar: Neighborhoods and business districts in Otoe County experienced wind gusts upwards of 60 mph.
  • Seward: The Seward County seat took heavy hail property damage as ice the size of golf balls made impact, according to social media posts.

It’s essential to schedule a commercial roof inspection following a hailstorm. When hard ice makes impact, it leads to a leaking roof that may not be immediately noticeable. Once water damage spots show on the ceiling, beams may be compromised, and hazardous mold has grown behind walls. RestoreMasters dispatched emergency roof repair crews to Kearney, Hastings, York, and Seward, NE, after high winds and hail-damaged buildings on June 14, 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.

It's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment following severe weather like this so that you can determine whether you have roof damage from hail or high winds. In situations where you've got a leaking roof, experienced disaster roofing contractors can stop the leaks temporarily, by laying tarp or by using a durable shrink-wrap plastic membrane in the affected areas, or even over the entire roof. This will keep your building protected until permanent repairs can take place. This will help prevent mold infestation from water leaks.
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. Many storm damage symptoms are not always evident immediately. And insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
