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.

Traditional news and social media reports indicate New England suffered the following hail damage on roofs and other property.

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.

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.

If roof leaks do occur, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) are covered with a durable shrink-wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place. That way you can prevent mold growth from water intrusion.

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.
