Jul 29, 2022

Hailstone strikes blistered New England on Thursday, July 21st, tasking property owners with securing badly needed emergency roof repair specialists. Although the hail damage on roofs is spread out across New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, RestoreMasters has field teams prepared to create a commercial roof inspection report so that property owners can expedite insurance claims.

“Supercells moving toward south New Hampshire through 5 pm with 60 mph winds and 2-inch hail detected by radar. Both storms also show rotation, so a tornado is possible through 6 pm,” a Facebook The Storm Warning report indicated. “Secure outdoor objects and get ready for some ugly storms. FYI the heat index at MHT is 100 degrees which is helping to fuel these storms.”

Commercial property owners who experienced intense weather are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. Hard impacts from hailstone strikes and powerful wind gusts affect the structural integrity of roofing systems. Enlisting the support of a comprehensive commercial roof inspection services provider can secure rooftops, avoid unnecessary water damage, and help fast-track insurance claims.

A hail damage map covering New England shows concentrated hailstorms across the region. The yellow areas point to hail up to 1.25 inches pelting automobiles and roofs. The orange sections demonstrate ice as large as 1.75 inches in diameter pounded residential neighborhoods and business districts.

Hail & Wind Damage Map - New England, Hail, 7/21/22

Storm that brought about hail damage in the New England area have been posted on social media:

The National Weather Service high wind and hail damage map shows dense storm concentrations over the New England states, Upstate New York, Long Island, Alabama, Mississippi, North Dakota, and the Carolinas. Isolated weather events pepper other areas of the U.S. A full accounting for Thursday, July 21st, indicates the country experienced 342 high-wind storms and 91 hailstone incidents during a 24-hour period. Traditional news and social media reports indicate New England suffered the following hail damage on roofs and other property.

  • Beecher Falls, New Hampshire: Ping pong ball-sized hailstones pelted roofs as high winds reportedly damaged outbuildings.
  • Bradford, Vermont: Hail damage on roofs was left after ice the size of quarters struck.
  • Bristol, New Hampshire: Ice up to 1.5 inches in diameter made landfall in the early afternoon.
  • Brookline, New Hampshire: Hail the size of half dollars blanketed the area around Potanipo Lake. Power lines were downed, and power outages were reported across Hillsborough County.
  • Center Ossipee, New Hampshire: Ice chunks the size of half dollars doused the area for five consecutive minutes.
  • Effingham, New Hampshire: A microburst drove wind speeds over 80 mph, leaving upwards of 400 trees downed near Town House Road.

  • Orleans County, Vermont: Hail the size of golf balls struck the communities of Irasburg and Coventry, with Albany and East Charleston seeing hail 1 to 1.25 inches in diameter. Upwards of a dozen trees were flattened by extreme wind gusts across the county.
  • Raymond, Maine: High winds resulted in structural and roof damage across Cumberland County.
  • Sanbornton, New Hampshire: Hailstones the size of golf balls impacted roofing systems as high winds downed tree limbs and sent debris flying into building siding.
  • Steep Falls, Maine: Ice stones the size of ping pong balls made impact in the late afternoon.

Property owners across affected New England states would be well-served to contact a commercial roof inspection services provider to conduct a thorough analysis. The region is suffering through intense and shifting weather patterns. A damaged roof allows moisture to penetrate, weaken structural supports, and hazardous molds to grow behind walls. RestoreMasters recently dispatched emergency roof repair and inspection teams to Monmouth County, NJ, to help with hail damage claims after a storm hit July 2, 2022.

Some roofing systems can be severely harmed by damage from heavy winds, tornadoes, or hail. Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds. 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.

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. 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.
Rather than believing your roof is not damaged, if your property is anywhere in the area of the storm damage map, then you will want to get your roof inspected. Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away. And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
