​Hurricane-force winds ripped through Sioux Falls, SD, on Monday, June 20th, leaving property owners in dire need of emergency roof repair. Local reports indicate the fast-moving wind storm ripped roofing systems from buildings, shredded siding, and created leaks as debris pelted agricultural and commercial buildings. RestoreMasters has commercial roof inspection and repair crews in Sioux Falls to support community members as they petition insurance companies.

“The floor of the hayloft just dropped straight down, and I figure they were probably in a pocket about a foot and a half to two feet of headroom. And there was 15 sheep in there, 11 adult ewes and four lambs,” Jim Wipf of Chancellor reportedly told Kelo local news. “We were in the bullseye. But you know what, I’m going to miss looking out that kitchen window and seeing this big ol’ barn standing there because that’s a relic of the past. And now, unfortunately, it’s gone.”

Agricultural and commercial property owners who sustained damage during the latest high-wind storm to hit Eastern South Dakota are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. High winds typically tear asphalt shingles, loosen metal roofing sections, and damage sealant on flat roofs. A commercial roof inspection services firm can provide a detailed report about the conditions of a roof to help expedite insurance claims.

A local high wind damage map shows a large light and dark gray high-wind storm stretching from Parker northeast across Sioux Falls and into Minnesota, north of Garretson. Light gray indicates high winds able to fling debris and snap tree branches. But the dark center of the storm shows winds exceeding 80 mph striking at business districts in and around the I-29 and I-90 intersection.

​The National Weather Service hailstorm, tornado, and high wind property damage map highlights severe weather events sweeping across Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota. National sources estimate six tornados, 48 hailstone strikes, and 241 high wind incidents resulted in widespread property damage on Monday, June 20th. Social media and traditional news reports illustrate the devastation suffered in the Sioux Falls area.

High wind roof damage occurs when flying debris makes impact, and sections are torn away or loosened. When roofs sustain extreme wind force, leaks typically follow. RestoreMasters sent commercial roof inspection services and repair experts to Belle Fourche and Western South Dakota after hail and high winds caused roof damage on June 12, 2022.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems.

Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour.

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.

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 problems do not produce symptoms right away.

And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
