Hail Damage Roof Repair for Daytona & Flagler Beach Areas Following Spring Storms
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
RestoreMasters emergency roofing and repair teams have been on the ground in Florida since the first round of storms rolled through earlier this spring. Our teams are positioned with equipment and resources to quickly help property owners with emergency roof repairs and property damage assessments in the Daytona Beach and Flagler Beach areas after particularly strong storms in March and April.
In March, Daytona Beach residents shared dramatic photos of hail “blanketing the ground like snow”. The March 6 storm brought heavy rain, strong wind gusts, lightning, and tons of hail to Volusia county. Hail reports from the National Weather Service described hailstones ranging in size from quarters to half dollars to ping pong balls.
1” hailstones were reported at LPGA International, the Daytona Gardens, and along Tropical Lane. Larger hailstones were seen along South Peninsula Drive, several points on the beaches, at the Daytona Automall and the Daytona International Speedway, where hailstones almost 2” in diameter were reported.
Here are a few examples of hail damage we discovered in the area. While it’s hard to see damage to the roof from a distance, our roof inspection uncovered significant hail damage, including punctures through the modified bitumen membrane on this roof.
The area was hit with severe weather again in April. On Sunday, April 18th, hail was reported in both Flagler and Volusia counties, from Flagler Beach, Bunnell, DeBary, Holly Hill, and Ormond Beach, and Daytona Beach. This round came with extremely strong winds which can significantly exacerbate hail damage. Hailstones 1” to 1.5” were hurtled into buildings by wind gusts up to 60mph. Residents shared photos of ping pong ball sized hailstones from several spots along the coast.
Bunnell also reported multiple trees downed by the intense wind gusts from this storm. The same storm moved inland and ended up producing an EF1 tornado in Marion county before dissipating. Ocala reported wind speeds of up to 110mph and significant property damage to buildings, trees, and power lines.
Local hail maps show the hail 1” or larger (yellow) falling over the Bunnell and south Flagler Beach, as well as an area just north of DAB. Hailstones 1.5” or larger (orange) were concentrated in the center of both areas. The orange areas are where we expect property owners to be seeing the most damage.
Hail as small as 1” can damage structures, and hail damage can be especially hard to detect on roofing materials like metal, TPO, EPDM or even shingles.
In addition to hail, strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour. The severity of 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 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. If leaks do occur, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) is covered with a durable shrink wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place.
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 problems do not produce symptoms right away. And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
