Augusta, Georgia was subjected to a storm that dropped tree branches, full-sized trees, and wind-driven hail throughout the area, on May 6th, Friday afternoon and evening. According to WRDW news, people were blocked in their homes with trees having fallen onto their roofs or in their yards cutting off access. Powerlines and trees were downed all across the area and into South Carolina, across roads, onto homes, damaging roofs. Additional damage was done to cars, and buildings from large hailstones, some as large as golf balls. One person, no stranger to storms, was home alone and frightened at seeing sparks coming from a nearby powerline, then across the street, the neighbor had a transformer on fire, which frightened her and the neighbors even more. This was a part of a more widespread storm that brought havoc to Crossville, TN and other surrounding areas on the same day. Thousands of people were without power and people were stranded in cars due to branches down on roads. Wind-blown hail, trees, and branches are devastating forces against roofs and sidings. Restoremasters sent a team into the area to assist with assessing damage so that homeowners can have peace of mind, knowing what repairs are needed, as well as having the reliable and expert services of the Restoremasters contractors.

A hail map of the Augusta, GA area indicates the span of the storm. Hail as large as eggs and tennis balls (dark orange) pelted Richmond and Johnson counties, Augusta was in the direct path of the 2.5” hail. While half-dollar-sized hail (orange) hit further out in Montgomery County, and a margin of up to one-inch hail (yellow) surrounding the larger hail storms.

RestoreMasters would like to remind Augusta, Ga residents that doing inspections and assessments without proper expertise may cause details to be missed. This could decrease the possibility of insurance companies providing the necessary coverage for repairs and restorations. RestoreMasters helps with everything from assessments to final restorations.

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. Several factors will determine the severity of roof damage: the height of the building and proximity to nearby structures, the quality of work by the original installers, the shape and angle of the roof, the age and type of roofing materials, and the impact from debris.

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.
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.
