A tornado ripped through Bowie, MD, Tuesday, July 5th, taking residents by surprise and leaving a wake of property and roof damage. Cleanup from the high winds and flying debris are underway as emergency roof repair efforts secure buildings from water damage. RestoreMasters has commercial roof inspection services and repair specialists in Prince George’s County.

“I was looking out the window and I see this coming down and said what’s that, and my wife came out and said that’s a trampoline from somewhere. We went underneath the stairs where we have a closet, so we got in there and just prayed, but it was a matter of seconds. You know like it just happened,” Tommy Martinez reportedly told ABC News 7. “We have the roof damage, and a lot of the siding is gone we have a busted window out the back. The backyard is just destroyed.”

Bowie and other Prince George’s County property owners can request a complimentary roof inspection to expedite insurance claims and fund necessary tornado roof damage repairs. Reports indicate community members received severe weather alerts only moments before the twister tore a path 125 yards wide and trekked more than a mile.

A local map of the tornado in Bowie, MD, shows a dark band stretching from Moylan Drive to Route 3 near the Bowie Playhouse. The dark area indicates a tornado-force weather event generating winds upwards of 90 mph.

The National Weather Service hail, high wind, and tornado damage map for Tuesday, July 5th, indicates a concentrated wind incident and tornado in Maryland, a 250-mile “derecho” storm devastating South Dakota and Iowa, as well as major fronts in North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, and isolated incidents scattered across the country. Local news and social media reports highlighted the tornado and high wind damage suffered in Bowie, MD, and the surrounding area.

In nearby Montgomery County, dozens of families were displaced after residential and multifamily units sustained high wind and tornado damage. It’s crucial to have a commercial roof inspection conducted even if a building does not appear to suffer from tornado damage. The vacuum force created by a twister pulls at siding, gutters, and roofing systems, weakening their ability to protect the structure from water penetrations.

RestoreMasters responded to West Long Branch and Monmouth County, NJ, to complete hail damage commercial roof inspections and repairs after a storm hit July 2, 2022.

Severe storms, bringing hail, strong winds, or tornadoes can cause severe roof damage, by ripping off roofing systems.

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

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.

Getting a roof inspection & property damage assessment after severe weather like this is important for determining whether you need to address roof damage from hail or high winds.

Circumstances do not always allow for immediate repair of roof leaks. In the meantime, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can cover the roof or affected area with a tarp or with a durable plastic shrink wrap material, until such a time when more permanent repairs can be made. We need to stop more moisture damage, so we can prevent mold growth.

Rather than believing your roof is not damaged, if your property is anywhere in the area of the storm damage map, then you will want to get your roof inspected.

Some storm damage symptoms take time to appear.

And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.

Emergency response crews are available to assist commercial property owners with roof damage, frozen pipe damage, siding and window damage, and turnkey restoration services.

We provide services to clients of all types, with hail or wind damage to tile roofing, such as: hospitals, medical facilities, churches, schools, colleges & universities, museums, condos, hotels, warehouses, resorts, retail properties, historical properties, industrial properties, and residential properties.
