​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.

Some roofing systems can be severely harmed by damage from heavy winds, tornadoes, or hail.

Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph.

Several factors will determine the severity of roof damage: the height of the building and proximity to nearby structures, the quality of work by the original installers, the shape and angle of the roof, the age and type of roofing materials, and the impact from debris.

After a severe storm of hail or high winds, it is important to get your roof inspected, and have a property damage assessment report so that you can learn whether you have damage to your roofing system.

If roof leaks are a problem, they need to be addressed immediately. Experienced roofing contractors can either cover the affected area (or the entire roof) with a tarp or with a durable shrink wrap plastic membrane until long-term repairs can be made. Preventing water intrusion will help stop mold from growing.

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.
