​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.

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.

Following severe weather like this, it's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment to determine whether or not you have roof damage from hail or wind. Circumstances do not always allow for immediate repair of roof leaks. In the meantime, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can cover the roof or affected area with a tarp or with a durable plastic shrink wrap material, until such a time when more permanent repairs can be made. We need to stop more moisture damage, so we can prevent mold growth.
Even if you don't think your roof was damaged, you will want to get your roof inspected if your property falls anywhere within the hail damage map. Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away. And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.
