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. 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.

It's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment following severe weather like this so that you can determine whether you have roof damage from hail or high winds. 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.
Get your roof inspected, even if you think there is no problem, especially if your property falls anywhere within the area of the hail and wind damage map. Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away. And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
