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.

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.

Some roofing systems can be severely harmed by damage from heavy winds, tornadoes, or hail. Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged. 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.
If your property was anywhere within the storm damage map, it would be best to get your roof inspected, even if you think your roof was not damaged. Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away. And insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
