Wind & Hail Damage Insurance Claims Filed Due To Storms Plaguing Southwest Nebraska On June 7, 2022
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
Two to three-inch hailstones dropped with torrential rains and high wind all throughout Southwest Nebraska, as part of a system of storms that harried residents and business owners living and working in their path. Roofs were destroyed, and windows were broken. According to Imperial Republican News, 30-year roofs that were replaced in 2019 due to destructive storms that occurred in September, now have about a 20-year life, but most roofs are being totaled.
Nebraska has a lot of farming communities, and crops were damaged in Chase County, which makes it hard on farmers, as they have a very small window of time to decide to replant. Planting has time periods in order for crops to grow and produce within the growing season. The time period for planting in Nebraska is closing soon.
With so much roof damage, RestoreMasters encourages residential and commercial property owners to take advantage of their free roof inspections, in order to get the best coverage from insurance companies.
The local hail and wind map indicates high wind overlapping in some areas where hail fell which can create a greater impact of hail on roofs and sidings. Light gray areas indicate winds up to 58 – 73 mph, and indigo indicates winds up to 95 mph. Hail up to 1 ¼” is indicated by yellow and orange to dark orange from 1.25 to 2.5”.

RestoreMasters has been in the area, providing assistance with emergency temporary repairs and insurance claim filing by assisting with roof inspections.
Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds. Roof damage can be severe or mild, depending on various factors which include: materials used on the roof, impact of debris, building height and proximity to other buildings, age, angle and shape of the roof and type of roofing.
