​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 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.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems.

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.

After a severe storm of hail or high winds, it is important to get your roof inspected, and have a property damage assessment report so that you can learn whether you have damage to your roofing system.

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.

Get your roof inspected, even if you think there is no problem, especially if your property falls anywhere within the area of the hail and wind damage map.

Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away.

And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.
