Commercial Roof Inspections in Sioux Falls, SD for Wind Damage Insurance Claims After Storm on June 20, 2022
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
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.
Images and videos of the storm have been posted to local social media by residents and news centers in the 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.
Severe storms, bringing hail, strong winds, or tornadoes can cause severe roof damage, by ripping off roofing systems. Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph. The intensity of roof damage is determined by various factors: the velocity and impact of flying debris, the quality of the original installation, the building height and location in relation to other buildings, the angle and shape of the roof, and the material used on the roof.
