Residents of Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and El Paso, Texas were rudely awakened by heavy hailstones pummeling their homes. A farmer and rancher, Jim Jordan said he awakened to the sound of hail pounding on his roof. He said, “it sounded like people on top of my roof banging on it with a baseball bat”. People who depend on greenhouses and crops, as well as home and business owners, had to face the mess the next day: clean up, do emergency remediation and bring in a lot of help. Their livelihoods depend on greenhouses to keep their plants cool in the blistering New Mexico heat, as well as keeping their homes and barns cool. RestoreMasters experts arrived in time to assist with all these details, and help to assess the damage and report it to residents’ and business owners’ insurance companies.

An area hail map indicating the storm straddling the New Mexico and Texas border indicates hail up to 1" on the edge of the storm (yellow) with hail reaching nearly 2 inches (orange) in the center of the storm. One-inch hail can cause a good deal of damage to roofs and sidings, but when it gets near 2 inches and larger it can create significant damage. Texas and New Mexico were not the only areas affected by storms this day, Waynesboro, VA and surrounding areas were also hit with severe hail and a tornado.

News centers and residents post images and videos of the storm and its aftermath, on social media:

The National Weather Service hail report indicates hail and heavy rain:

  • Santa Teresa: Small hail and heavy rain in some parts, 1-inch diameter hail in Dona Ana county.
  • Canutillo: heavy rain and small hail mix in El Paso.
  • Anthony: lots of quarter-inch hail in El Paso.

RestoreMasters urges home and business owners to practice the utmost caution if doing roof inspections, being sure the ladder is in top working condition as well as wearing the correct type of shoes, soft-sole, or roofing boots. Bring chalk to mark damaged areas and a camera to take pictures for the insurance claim. A ground inspection can give an idea of how much damage might be on the roof, for example, dented gutters, and downspouts. Dents, dings, and other impact marks on siding and windowsills/casings may also indicate roof tile damage. Clearly, if these areas are damaged then it is highly unlikely the roof came out unscathed. RestoreMasters has experts with the training and skills to quickly and safely assess roof damage as well as provide assistance with insurance companies, emergency remediation, and final repairs.

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 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. 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 symptoms take time to appear. And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.
Commercial property owners can rest assured that emergency response crews are available to assist with window, siding and roof damage, frozen pipe damage as well as turnkey restoration services.
