Roof Inspections Due For Hail Damage Insurance Claims Underway, Due To Big Hail Storm In Broome County, New York, On June 1, 2022
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
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.
Some roofing systems can be severely harmed by damage from heavy winds, tornadoes, or hail.
Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged.
The intensity of roof damage is determined by various factors: the velocity and impact of flying debris, the quality of the original installation, the building height and location in relation to other buildings, the angle and shape of the roof, and the material used on the roof.
It's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment following severe weather like this so that you can determine whether you have roof damage from hail or high winds.
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.
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 deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
