Roof Repair in Port St. Lucie, Florida After Hail Damage on January 10, 2022

Large storms entered Port St. Lucie, Florida on Monday, January 10th, dropping large hail and leaving behind significant damage to buildings and vehicles. To help with property repair and cleanup, RestoreMasters has dispatched teams to the local area.

While the storm itself wasn’t that large in size compared to some experienced at other times on the coast, the impressively large hail and torrential rains made it quite damaging. According to local media reports, it was the largest hail storm in the area since 2007.

Reports of damaged cars, roofs torn off buildings, and downed trees were all reported within the Treasure Coast area. Area news reports even showed video of cars with smashed windows, battered hoods. One vehicle owner stated that he had over 117 different dents on his Ford F-150 truck. Chunks of ice were large enough to knock the side mirror off a sedan. Local residents reported that the storm sounded “like a war zone” and that some businesses had to sweep piles of ice out of their warehouses afterward.

That said, it is important to remember that hail as large as an inch in diameter can cause extreme damage to roofing materials. RestoreMasters encourages all commercial property owners in Port St. Lucie to inspect their buildings carefully for damage in the wake of this weather event. While it might not be visually apparent, some issues associated with this storm could cause future problems with water damage, mold, and more.

According to local hail maps, the majority of the biggest hail occurred northwest of the city and east of Interstate 95. Official measurements indicate areas with hail in the size range of 1” to 1.25” (yellow) falling in some areas, while other spots just saw 1.25” to 1.75” (orange) in diameter. While it seems like the map minimizes that actual amount and size of hail from the storm, it is important to remember that these localized areas received a ton of it during a very, very short period of time.

RestoreMasters will continue to work with local property owners to clean up damage for the next few weeks or as long as necessary. Considering the scope of this hailstorm, this is expected to continue for an extended period of time. With teams that specialize in repairs after large hailstorms, we remain committed to ensuring each of our clients gets the attention and quality service necessary.

According to the National Weather Service, hail totals were reported in the Florida counties of:

  • Saint Lucie — Quarter to ping pong sized hail reported near the St. Lucie Fairgrounds. Additional social media posts show hail as large as 2” in diameter within the same region. Large hail was also reported near the PGA Village in St. Lucie West.

In addition to roof damage from hail, 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) is covered with a durable shrink wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place.
