​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.  

  • Baltic: Photos of fallen and broken tree limbs were trending on social media.
  • Bancroft: A twister briefly touched down in Kingsbury County as doors were blown off buildings.
  • Crooks: Wind speeds were recorded above 60 mph.

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.

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.
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 symptoms take time to appear. And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.
