Roof Hail Damage Repair in Exeter, NH Following September 22, 2022 Storm
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
Exeter, N.H., and parts of the Seacoast took a beating from hailstones on Thursday, Sept. 22nd, as Hurricane Fiona followed suit with torrential downpours. The need for emergency roof repair couldn’t be more imminent as rainwater seeps through the cracks left by the hail roof damage. RestoreMasters has contractors and inspectors ready to respond from the roof repair office in Portsmouth, N.H.
“Residents in Exeter reported half-dollar sized hail, which is roughly 1.25 inches, and other reports across the Seacoast flooded into the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine. Penny-sized hail was reported in areas near Rye. The area was under a severe thunderstorm warning Thursday morning, which expired after the storms passed,” Seacoast Online reported. “Much of the Seacoast received more than an inch of rain. Forecasters expected another half-inch to fall by the end of Thursday.”
Hurricane Fiona was positioned off the Atlantic Coast, dousing the region before slamming into Nova Scotia. The ensuing rain is expected to exacerbate the Exeter hail roof damage, causing obvious water damage and slow leaks.
Commercial, agricultural, and institutional building owners can request a complimentary roof inspection to document the storm damage and file an insurance claim. Those who do not take advantage of commercial roof inspection services following a severe weather event may incur out-of-pocket roof repair costs later.
A local hailstorm damage map shows a long weather pattern stretching south of Kingston to Portsmouth, edging into Maine. The yellow sections in areas such as Kingston, Greenland, and Portsmouth indicate ice up to 1.25 inches made landfall. The orange concentration over Exeter demonstrates hail up to 1.75 inches in diameter caused significant roof storm damage.

The National Weather Service confirmed local reports and its high wind, tornado, and hailstorm damage map shows a storm front over Southeastern N.H. as well as Ohio, New Mexico, and Colorado. A full accounting for Thursday, Sept. 22nd, includes one tornado, three wind storms, and five hail strikes over 24 hours. Traditional and social media outlets report the following hail damage in Exeter, N.H., and the surrounding area.
- Exeter: Hail the size of half-dollars dented metal roofing systems and damaged shingles.
- Kingston: Areas of Rockingham County sustained hits from ice nearly as large as ping pong balls.
- Newmarket: Quarter-sized hail fell in the evening, blanketing the area.
- Stratham: Ice the size of quarters pelted rooftops and automobiles around dusk.
The hail damage on roofs caused by this storm is likely to allow rain driven by Hurricane Fiona to soak rafters and spur hazardous mold growths. It’s crucial to secure the building by implementing emergency roof repair techniques such as tarping and shrink wrapping.
Those already affected by the dual-threat storms can still schedule a commercial roof inspection to support an insurance claim. RestoreMasters provided commercial roof inspection services to impacted New England business owners after a July 21, 2022, storm inflicted hail roof damage.
Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage.
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.
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.
Many storm damage symptoms are not always evident immediately.
And insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
