​Property owners of Broome County, NY endured severe thunderstorms and various-sized hailstones on Wednesday afternoon, June 1st. Storms went on throughout the afternoon and evening. At the time binghamtonhomepage.com reported the storm, about 4000 customers in Broome County were without power.

Hail the size of golf balls drops at up to 40 mph. That kind of impact on a roof can cause great damage to roofing material of all types. Inspecting a residential or a commercial roof for hail damage can be challenging for many people. For accurate damage reports for insurance claims, it requires the vast experience of professionals, to get the best coverage. This is why RestoreMasters offers a complimentary roof inspection.

The thunderstorms rolled through the New York area, west of Binghamton, dropping hail up to 1” (yellow), to 1.75” (orange), and up to 2.5” (dark orange) in size. The largest hail fell in Endwell, NY a township in Broome County. On May 20th a storm hit a little further south, on the New Jersey, Delaware border, they too saw huge hailstones, which is very unusual for the east coast.

RestoreMasters is in the area to assist with roof inspections for insurance reporting, as well as emergency shrink wrapping or tarping to temporarily cover homes and commercial buildings until such a time when more permanent repairs and restorations can be completed.

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.

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.
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.
