Roof Inspections For Wind & Hail Damage Insurance Claims Due to Northern Ohio Storm, On June 1, 2022
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
Northern Ohio got hit hard with heavy winds on Wednesday evening, June 1st. News 5 Cleveland reporter interviewed Sarah Forrer a Hudson, Ohio resident who stated, “In 15 minutes, all the damage was done fast and furious. And we have a hole in our roof and we have about a dozen trees down. It was a mess. It was honestly one of those things, so surreal. I know it could’ve been much worse. We could have been hurt.”
Downtown Hudson was flooded, trees were toppled, split, and uprooted. About 75% of Hudson Public Power had outages due to downed power lines and poles. It was a little less than a month ago that central Ohio was hit by two tornadoes and hail, on May 3rd.
RestoreMasters deployed roof inspection experts to the area to assist with wind and hail damage insurance claims reporting. They are offering free inspections for anyone who may be concerned about the impact of the storm on their roof. Whether a home or a commercial building, the RestoreMasters expert team can help.
The local wind and hail map shows a large swath of wind in the 58-73 mph range (gray) between Cleveland and Akron, Ohio. Almost dead center of the storm was a patch of heavier wind, gusting up to 95 miles per hour (deep blue), covering most of Hudson, Ohio, and surrounding communities. The yellow swath, in the center, indicates hail
An EF-1 tornado has a wind speed range of 86 – 110. The winds in this storm blowing at tornadic speeds, caused as much trouble to property owners. And areas where up to half dollar-sized hail fell, even more damage due to wind propelled stones against ceramic tiled or asphalt shingled roofs.
Local social media posts show images and videos of the storm and the damage.

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 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.
Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away.
And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
