Driving winds and hailstone strikes left a wake of property and roof damage across West Long Branch and areas of Monmouth County, NJ, on Saturday, July 2nd. As industrial, retail, and institutional property owners and managers seek emergency roof repair and commercial roof inspection services, RestoreMasters has experts on standby in Monmouth County.

“Strong winds cut through a West Long Branch community Saturday and left behind a trail of destruction. A storm tore through an area near the intersection of Victor and North Linden avenues, taking down trees and power lines,” News 12 New Jersey reported.

“It started with very heavy rain, then next thing hail. The next thing, it looked like everything went sideways, and then trees just started falling down, and then wires came down,” a resident reportedly told the news outlet.

Property owners that sustained hailstone strikes or experienced high wind gusts are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. Hail of any size can create roofing tears and loosen flashing that lead to moisture penetrations and water damage. A commercial roof inspection from a reputable contractor serves as a record of the hail roof damage when filing an insurance claim.

A local wind and hailstorm damage map shows a large yellow and orange cluster stretching from Five Points Road in Howell Township, across Hockhockson, and east through Monmouth University to the Atlantic. The yellow sections over areas such as Asbury Ave and West Long Branch point to hail up to 1.25 inches, blanketing the area.

The orange concentrated section over the business district along the Garden State Parkway indicates ice chunks as large as 1.75 inches in diameter caused property and roof damage. The light gray swath over Long Branch demonstrates high winds and strong gusts, resulting in widespread losses.

​A National Weather Service tornado, high wind, and hail damage map for Saturday, July 2nd, shows storm fronts over Eastern New Jersey, Maryland, New England, Virginia, and isolated weather events across the country. A full accounting indicates that 100 wind incidents and 27 hailstorms occurred in a 24-hour period. Wide-reaching reports highlight the significant property and roof damage suffered in West Long Branch and Monmouth County.

  • Eatontown: The Monmouth County community saw ice the size of ping pong balls strike buildings and automobiles in the early evening. Strong wind gusts downed power lines.
  • Long Branch: Images trending on social media show large trees toppled in residential areas.
  • West Long Branch: Hail the size of half-dollars struck vehicles and buildings between 5-6 pm. High winds downed trees along Brookdale Ave.

Following a New Jersey hailstone strike or high-wind event, a routine commercial roof inspection identifies problem areas that require emergency roof repair and long-term solutions. RestoreMasters dispatched commercial roof inspection services and emergency roof repair crews to Broome County, New York, on June 1, 2022, to support property owners following a devastating hailstorm.

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.

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. 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.
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 insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.

Our clients include: schools, hospitals, hotels, churches, resorts, retail, warehouse, industrial, and other commercial properties as well as residential properties with hail or wind damage to tile roofing systems.
