High winds ripped roofs off buildings and toppled trees Monday, June 13th, as hailstones added insult to injury across Madison, Milwaukee, and Southern Wisconsin. Local news reports indicate displaced property owners are in desperate need of emergency roof repair. RestoreMasters has commercial roof inspection services experts in the field to help facilitate claims and expedite property restoration.

“Along Wright Street, near E. Washington Ave. on Madison’s east side, a sizable portion of the roof, as wide as an apartment or two, was ripped off, sending wooden shards raining down pieces on vehicles parked a street over from the apartment. Dane Co. Executive Joe Parisi and Dane County Emergency Management Director Charles Tubbs, Sr., said they were planning on going to the 1500 block of Wright Street to assess the damage,” NBC affiliate WMTV 15 reported. “Near Harding and Richard Street, also on the east side, a large tree was ripped from the ground by the roots and came down on a home, causing significant damage. The Madison Police Department has blocked off streets near the area of S. Williamson Street and S. Ingersoll St. as power crews respond to the area.”

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

A local wind and hailstorm damage map shows a long severe weather pattern. The front stretches from just north of Cross Plains, east across Lake Mills and Jefferson, to Lake Michigan through south Milwaukee. The yellow areas on the perimeters of the severe weather event show hail up to 1.25 inches peppering communities. The orange sections indicate hailstones ranging up to 1.25 to 2.5 inches in diameter pounded automobiles and caused storm roof damage. Gray areas near Madison and Milwaukee show high winds that reached tornado strength and ripped roofs apart.

RestoreMasters dispatched commercial roof inspection and repair specialists to Oconomowoc, WI for hail damage insurance claim and repair assistance on June 10, 2022.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage.

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

Roof damage can be severe or mild, depending on various factors which include: materials used on the roof, impact of debris, building height and proximity to other buildings, age, angle and shape of the roof and type of roofing.

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.

If roof leaks do occur, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) are covered with a durable shrink-wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place. That way you can prevent mold growth from water intrusion.

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.

Many storm damage symptoms are not always evident immediately.

And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
