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.

Social media posts about the Fort Smith, Arkansas hail damage and related storms:

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.

Severe storms, bringing hail, strong winds, or tornadoes can cause severe roof damage, by ripping off roofing systems.

Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged.

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.

Following severe weather like this, it's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment to determine whether or not you have roof damage from hail or wind.

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.

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.
