Commercial Roof Inspections in McHenry, Maryland & Northeast West Virginia To Document Hail Damage From September 25, 2022 Storm

Sep 26, 2022

A fast-moving hailstorm pelted McHenry, Maryland, and Northeast West Virginia on Sunday, Sept. 25th, leaving cracked shingles and roof leaks. Emergency roof repair crews were alerted to cure hail roof damage that could lead to water damage. RestoreMasters has certified professionals on standby at our roofing offices in Bethesda, Maryland.

“Fourteen Maryland counties and Baltimore city are under a severe thunderstorm watch until 7 p.m. Sunday. Showers and thunderstorms will expand across the region Sunday afternoon,” according to The Patch. “Some storms may produce damaging winds and large hail. Ping pong ball size hail has already been reported in Garrett County.”

Commercial, agricultural, and institutional building decision-makers are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. Hailstones the size of ping pong balls typically crack asphalt shingles, dent metal panels, and splinter tile roofing systems. Seemingly minor hail roof damage can result in unnoticed moisture penetrations, causing beams to rot and hazardous mold growths.

A commercial roof inspection helps document hail damage on roofs, which also includes compromised flashing and sealants around ventilation pipes and HVAC units. Commercial roof inspection services also support an insurance claim that might otherwise cause property owners to pay out of pocket.

A local hailstorm damage map shows a long front stretching from Morgantown, West Virginia, east across McHenry, Maryland, and as far as Route 135. The yellow areas over Morgantown, and Mount Nebo, W.V., as well as Hoyes Road, off of Highway 219 in Maryland, indicate ice chunks up to 1.25 inches peppered rooftops. The orange sections show that hailstones up to 1.75 inches in diameter pummeled automobiles and roofing systems.

The National Weather Service high wind, tornado, and hail damage map shows severe weather over Western Maryland and Northeast West Virginia. Other severe weather mapping shows significant storms over Virginia, Long Island New York, Wisconsin, Texas, and Louisiana.  All told, there were a reported 107 high wind reports, one tornado, and seven hailstorms on Sunday, Sept. 25th. Wide-reaching reports highlight the following hail damage to roofing systems and other property.

  • Bloomery: Two large trees were downed, blocking parts of Mission Road in Jefferson County.
  • Capon Bridge: High winds and strong gusts downed three mature trees in Hampshire County.
  • Martinsburg: Strong gusts of wind toppled trees along Giles Mill Road in Berkeley County.  
  • McHenry: Areas of Garrett County were struck by hail the size of ping pong balls in the late evening.
  • Morgantown: The Monongalia County community sustained hits from ice the size of quarters.

High winds typically drive hail into rooftops, siding, and gutters. Having a commercial roof inspection conducted also accounts for other types of hail damage. RestoreMasters provided commercial roof inspection services in Bowie, MD, to document wind and tornado roof damage following a July 5, 2022, storm front.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage.

Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour.

The intensity of roof damage is determined by various factors: the velocity and impact of flying debris, the quality of the original installation, the building height and location in relation to other buildings, the angle and shape of the roof, and the material used on the roof.

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.

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.

Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately.

And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.

Emergency response crews are available to provide property owners with assistance in turnkey restoration services, as well as assistance with frozen pipe damage, window damage, siding damage, and roof damage.

We serve the following types of property owners with hail or wind damage to tile roofing: hospitals and clinics, schools, universities, institutions, churches, condos, hotels, resorts, retail properties, warehouses, mult-family, historical properties, industrial properties and residential properties.
