7, 1998 DERECHOS Just before midnight on Sunday evening September
6, 1998, a derecho formed over western New York and moved rapidly east
during the early morning of Labor Day (September 7th), reaching the New
England coast by 6 AM EDT. Wind damage occurred in much of the area
outlined in green in Fig. 1. Some of the worst storm damage occurred in
a band across western and central New York, from Rochester to Syracuse
and near Utica. The derecho storm system reached the Syracuse area ("S"
on Fig. 1) just after 1 AM EDT. Three people were killed and 10 were
injured in Syracuse, mostly at the New York State Fairgrounds. Measured
wind gusts of 89 mph at the Rochester Airport and 77 mph at the
Syracuse airport were recorded. Winds were estimated to have reached
115 mph in the most seriously-damaged areas. Along the derecho path,
tens of thousands of trees were blown down and over 1000 homes and
businesses were damaged. Damage was estimated at about 130 million
dollars. Hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses lost power, with
some remaining without power for a week."
Maintenance & Roof Leak Repairs
let a small roof leak now turn into a major headache later. Our
can quickly pinpoint problem areas and take corrective action to
properly fix your roof, before roof
failure occurs. Routine maintenance is important. However,
here are just a few warning signs that may indicate larger problems are
ahead requiring repair of your roof.
Flashing at chimneys, walls, and
or damaged flashing and sealant is a leading cause of a leaking roof.
Among the most notorious areas are at chimneys, anywhere the roof
abuts a wall, and in locations where the roof changes pitch and/or
direction. But it can happen anywhere. Once flashing fails,
in any location, water will seep beneath the shingle, saturating the
roof decking causing decay and mold/mildew growth... And, yes, water
has to go somewhere. Eventually the water find its way into
living spaces, saturating the wood framing of the house, causing
drywall damage, encouraging the growth of black mold and mildew along
In less than one year a small leak will grow
exponentially, especially if the roof is not fixed prior
Once even a few drops of water get underneath roof flashing or
roofing shingle, and freezes into ice, the ice acts as a wedge which
pries the layers of the roofing material apart causing significant
damage to your roof. When the ice
melts, it leaves behind a larger hole in the roof for water to enter,
freezes, melts, leaving an even larger hole, and so on. Ice and
ice dams are a significant source of roof leaks necessitating roof
Condensation in skylights.
Does your skylight look like this?
This isn't just a
condensation. The seal has failed in this skylight. The

The particular skylight shown
here has reached an advanced stage of failure. It usually happens
subtly and over time. Take note of any condensation you see
forming in you skylights.
