Fort Wayne recorded its most destructive wind force on Monday, June 13th, as Goshen and Northeast Indiana also suffered devastating property damage, requiring emergency roof repair. The hurricane-force winds propelled hailstones into structures, and emergency roof inspections will be needed as business districts start the building restoration process. RestoreMasters has commercial roof inspection services in Fort Wayne, Goshen, and Northeast Indiana, ready to assist with hail and wind roof damage repair.

“Storms packing hurricane-force winds pummeled northeastern Indiana, knocking out power to tens of thousands of customers and causing substantial damage,” according to NBC News in Fort Wayne. “Semis were blown off the road. Westbound US 30 was closed for several hours as one incident was cleared. Downed power lines and trees prevented access to neighborhoods and hampered efforts by utility workers to restore service.”

Commercial property owners are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection to fast-track insurance claims. The first step to recovering from these weather-related losses is by conducting a commercial roof inspection and getting an emergency roof repair quote.

A local hail and wind roof damage map shows a pair of yellow and orange hailstorms passing through Northeast Indiana, indicating ice balls between 1 and 1.75 inches struck homes and commercial buildings. The light gray areas point to intense winds stretching from Elkhart south across Fort Wayne toward Kingsland. A second front stretches across Northeastern Indiana. But the dark concentrations are where record-breaking wind destroyed buildings and rooftops.

Traditional and social media reports affirm Fort Wayne, Goshen, and Northeast Indiana sustained the following wind property damage.

RestoreMasters dispatched commercial roof inspection services and repair specialists to Northern Ohio on June 1, 2022, to aid with the building restoration after high winds and hail-damaged roofs, siding, and gutters.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds. 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.

After a severe storm of hail or high winds, it is important to get your roof inspected, and have a property damage assessment report so that you can learn whether you have damage to your roofing system. In situations where you've got a leaking roof, experienced disaster roofing contractors can stop the leaks temporarily, by laying tarp or by using a durable shrink-wrap plastic membrane in the affected areas, or even over the entire roof. This will keep your building protected until permanent repairs can take place. This will help prevent mold infestation from water leaks.
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 deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
