Did Hail or Wind Damage My Roof? Can CompuWeather Help Me?

Contributed by Patti Robertson, CompuWeather Forensic Order Specialist and Account Executive

Our customers often need to define or eliminate hail and wind as the causative factors in roof damage.  CompuWeather’s HailTrail and HailTrail SearchPlus products are effective tools used to determine if damaging hail was at or near the loss location on a specific day, or over a period of months or years. If you need to evaluate wind speeds at the same location over the same period of time, we have 2 types of reports to assist you:

  • Wind Summary Report
  • Wind Threshold Study

A Wind Summary Report provides a table of daily peak wind speeds and wind direction for every day in the period.

A Wind Threshold Study, which is a more focused and manageable report because it only provides dates when the maximum wind speed was greater than a threshold number in miles per hour that you select.  The maximum wind speed is provided for each date that meets the threshold.

By combining our HailTrail SearchPlus report with either of our long term wind studies, you can get a comprehensive history of hail and wind events at your loss location.
