Large hailstorms trekked through the Fort Smith, Arkansas, area Saturday, Oct. 15th, inflicting widespread roof hail damage. Impacted buildings require inspections and emergency roof repair to stop leaks and prevent unnecessary water damage. RestoreMasters has commercial roof inspection and repair specialists on-site to help commercial, agricultural, and institutional building owners recover. If your building was impacted, call the roof repair office in Tulsa, OK.

“A system of thunderstorms moved over Fort Smith, Arkansas, blanketing the area in hailstones. Piles of hail were so prominent, they could be mistaken for snow,” The Weather Channel reported.

A local hail damage map shows three major storm fronts in the Fort Smith area. The yellow sections identified on the map point to ice up to 1.25 inches pelting automobiles and rooftops. The orange swaths located southeast of Fort Smith and along Route 10 below Greenwood show hail up to 1.75 inches in diameter struck roofing systems across the region.

Property owners are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection to support an insurance claim and prevent unnecessary water damage. When hailstones of this magnitude strike shingles, metal panels, rubber roofs, sealants, and gutters, moisture infiltrates soffits and the support infrastructure. Leveraging commercial roof inspection services provides property owners with a comprehensive roof hail damage report that can be used to fast-track an insurance claim.

The National Weather Service high wind and hailstorm damage map for Saturday, Oct. 15th, shows storm concentrations over Arizona, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. All told, 22 high wind incidents and 54 hail reports were reported over 24 hours. Wide-reaching resources highlighted the following hail property damage in Fort Smith, AR.

  • Barling: The Sebastian County municipality sustained a steady pelting of quarter-sized hail during the early evening. Wind gusts topped 60 mph as airborne debris and snapped tree branches struck the siding of buildings.
  • Fort Smith: Multiple reports were fielded in Sebastian County, with the largest hail exceeding the size of ping pong balls. High winds downed power lines and snapped tree branches.
  • Greenbrier: Hail the size of half dollars pummeled roofing systems across Faulkner County.
  • Hackett: Hail the size of quarters blanketed the area.
  • Ozark: Franklin County experienced ice fall the size of half dollars during the early evening.
  • Rye Hill: Ping pong ball-sized hail struck automobiles and roofing systems, leaving dents.  
  • Watalula: Intense thunderstorm winds snapped mature tree limbs across Franklin County.

Along with hail roof damage, thunderstorms doused the region with rain that can seep through cracks caused by the ice strikes. It’s essential to have a commercial roof inspection performed to identify any slow leaks and promptly file an insurance claim. Delays could result in an insurance corporation denying a storm roof damage claim later.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph. 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.

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.
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. Some storm damage symptoms take time to appear. And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
