Northwest Arkansas sustained heavy property damage as a fast-moving hailstorm pounded rooftops in Benton and Washington counties on Friday, April 15th, 2022. RestoreMasters has hail damage roof repair specialists in the area to affect emergency leak repairs before the next storm sweeps across Oklahoma into the Natural State.

Fox 24 issued a weather alert indicating that a storm would travel through the Northwest corner, likely drenching Benton and Washington counties, among others. But the seemingly light spring rains were predicted to turn hazardous before nightfall.

“A second wave of energy will bring severe weather potential Friday night, including the possibility of damaging wind gusts, large hail, and one or two tornadoes,” Fox 24 reported. “Locations under the hatched area for hail could see hail sizes over 2-inches (hen egg/lime size) in diameter.”

Local hail damage maps show a large storm front stretching from west of Farmington through Springdale and as far east as Hindsville Lake. The yellow bands stretching from east to west highlight moderate icefall of approximately 1-inch in diameter. The light orange swaths show hail as large as 1.75 inches, striking Wheeler, Johnson, and as far east as Pilgrims Rest. Heavier ice balls up to 2.5 inches pelted south Springdale. But the largest hailstones — estimated at more than 2.5 inches — battered Springdale neighborhoods and the Springdale Municipal Airport.

Hail storms and images of stones are reported by citizens and news outlets on social media:

The National Weather Service storm damage maps show multiple hail, high wind, and tornado fronts trekking across Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama. All told, 16 wind events, seven tornados, and 55 hail reports were fielded by the national reporting service. Severe weather storms hit Northwest Arkansas hard Friday evening, and some trailed overnight into April 16th, dissipating before dawn. Wide-reaching hail property damage reports indicate the following communities sustained losses.

  • Fayetteville: Ice the size of quarters blanketed the community just before midnight.
  • Springdale: Taking the brunt of the hailstorm, the Washington County community sustained significant damage as ice the size of tennis balls pummeled commercial roofs and other structures overnight.
  • Business Districts: Areas along Highway 412 and Route 49 experienced the largest ice stone hits during the overnight storm.
  • Route 412: Communities including Sonora, Blue Springs Village, Pilgrims Rest, and Spring Valley saw quarter-sized ice blanket neighborhoods and businesses around the highway stretching from Springdale to the east before waning above Hindsville.

Commercial and residential property owners are urged to contact emergency roof repair specialists to inspect the condition of the building and promptly repair roof leaks. Rain and moisture can seep into cracks, weaken load-bearing supports and spur hazardous mold growths behind walls.

RestoreMasters recently responded to Eastern Arkansas, where property owners needed emergency roofing services to repair leaks and secure structures after hailstorms and tornadoes ravaged communities around Russellville and Fort Smith on Monday, April 11th, 2022.

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. 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.
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. Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately. And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
