Sep 29, 2022

Hurricane Ian lashed Tampa, Florida, leaving upwards of $65 billion in property damage in its wake, and RestoreMasters hurricane disaster relief contractors are on the job. Emergency roof repair crews were organized as the Category 4 storm approached the Gulf Coast. Now that enough roadways are cleared, emergency shrink wrap roofing and tarping can be deployed to prevent further losses and begin the storm damage repair process. Property owners who sustained hurricane Ian damage are urged to call the emergency roof repair office in Tampa, FL.

Commercial Roof Repair Tampa

Meteorologists showed the hurricane Ian track slam into the Gulf Coast just south of Tampa as a Category 4, with driving winds exceeding 150 mph. Fierce winds and flying debris make emergency roof leak repair efforts essential to stopping rain from pouring into buildings and flooding them again.  

RestoreMasters built its industry-leading reputation by responding to the hardest hit regions after tornados, hailstorms, and hurricanes left a wake of roof and property damage. Having experienced what ailing communities go through, our hurricane disaster relief contractors are ready to face adversity with Tampa and start the restoration process.   

Our commercial roof repair crews have handled complex roofing jobs throughout the nation. These emergency roofing professionals bring skills and determination to the table. They’re ready to handle anything from small roof damage repairs to large tear-off and replacement roofing projects that require a hurricane contractor to oversee subcontractors and timelines.

We have hurricane disaster relief contractors in the field focused on helping restore structures that sustained hurricane Ian damage by bringing the following services to bear.

Wind Damage to Roof

Emergency Roof Repair

The lead emergency roofer who works directly with you assesses the roof wind damage and develops a plan to secure the roof damage. Techniques include tarping or shirk wrap roofing to cover holes and comprised roofing systems. These temporary emergency roof repair procedures are designed to prevent further water damage before long-term solutions are implemented.  

Hurricane Debris Removal

The damage from hurricane Ian ranks among the worst from a tropical cyclone to make landfall since Michael hit Panama City in 2018. The flying debris and loose wreckage have accumulated. Before these potentially hazardous materials can cause injury or illness, our experienced hurricane debris removal crews can affect a cleanup. Our experienced hurricane disaster relief contractors bring vital equipment and resources to execute a comprehensive hurricane cleanup.

Water Removal

Water removal is a pivotal part of the restoration process. It involves using state-of-the-art equipment to eliminate standing water and extract moisture from partitions, rafters, flooring, and other potentially salvageable construction materials. Our water removal experts ensure the area is clean and dry, so that crucial next steps can be done without worrying mold will grow behind walls later.

Building Restoration

Experienced hurricane repair contractors understand that roof storm damage won’t be the only thing they’ll need to repair or replace. Catastrophic weather events hurl debris and objects into siding, doors, windows, gutters, porches, decks, and others. Our hurricane disaster relief contractors possess the resources and knowledge to replace, repair, and rebuild every facet of the structure.

The damage from hurricane Ian is not the first time RestoreMasters hurricane disaster relief contractors have been part of revitalizing a community. Our clients include hotels, resorts, condominiums, community associations, apartment complexes, churches, historical buildings, restaurants, retail, office, warehouse, industrial buildings, luxury homes, and many others.

The roof and structural damage across Tampa is reversible because our hurricane disaster relief contractors are ready to work until you reopen.

Commercial Roof Replacement Tampa

Anytime an office building, resort, retail outlet, church, or industrial complex suffers extensive wind roof damage, leaders need to make difficult choices. Deciding between roof leak repair or a new installation requires reliable information.

To assist with that process, a roof repair contractor will conduct a thorough inspection of all of the damage from hurricane Ian. After documenting the water and roof wind damage, our certified professionals deliver a report to help you make an informed decision. The detailed assessment can also help support an insurance claim. With an accurate inspection report and a reliable quote, you’ll know whether roof repair or replacement is the best option.

Tile Roof Repair

Roofing for Hurricane Damage

Emerging as a national leader in commercial roof repair and replacement is a testament to our skilled and hard-working emergency roofing specialists. They diligently repair and replace the following commercial roofing systems.

BUR Roofing

Commercial buildings utilize the built-up roofing system because it stands up to severe weather. The 100+ mph winds and flying debris thrown by hurricane Ian can damage any roof. If you need to repair or replace a BUR roofing system, a commercial roof repair and replacement team can rebuild every aspect.  

EPDM Roofing

Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) systems are cost-effective and durable flat roofs. Also referred to as “rubber roofs,” many in the Tampa area were compromised during the storm. We have technicians with hands-on experience ready to help.

Metal Roofing

Commercial and industrial businesses employ metal roofing systems because they are long-lasting and relatively inexpensive. Although able to withstand most severe weather, Category 4 winds can rip off entire sections. Our certified metal roof installers routinely repair and replace these systems. 

Modified Bitumen Roofing

Hard impacts and high winds can compromise the layered materials of a modified bitumen roofing system. An experienced roof repair contractor can find leaks and close the gaps. If the roof deck has been affected, a roof repair contractor can rebuild it. 

PVC Roofing

The ability to put down a white overlay makes PVC roofing systems a preferred choice in Florida. This aspect deflects intense UV rays and helps reduce energy consumption. A PVC roofing system may be worth considering if your flat roof sustained damage from hurricane Ian.

Shingle Roofing

Asphalt shingles are widely used on sloped roofs. Unfortunately, shingle roofing systems incur heavy roof wind damage. They prove relatively inexpensive and easy-to-fix systems.

Tile Roofing

The advanced technologies used in tile roof products make them a choice that raises property values. If your pitched roof was damaged from hurricane Ian, a tile upgrade could prove worthwhile.

TPO Roofing

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) consists of a single-ply roofing membrane, supported by a properly installed solid substrate. TPO roofing systems are rugged, weather resistant, and a sound option for facilities in Tampa.

Signs You Might Need Roof Replacement

The damage from hurricane Ian can be obvious or not manifest for months. Images of Tampa on social media indicate buildings have gaping holes, torn panels, and water ponding on sagging flat rooftops. Asphalt shingles are part of the debris hurricane cleanup crews are hauling away.  

Roofs that are badly damaged will need significant roof repair or a full replacement. If you see any other the following telltale signs, schedule a roof inspection.

  • Sagging Roof Deck
  • Water Pooling on Flat Roof
  • Gutters Backed Up
  • Moisture Around Windows & Doors
  • Mold or Algae Growing on Roof
  • Missing Shingles or Tiles
  • Dents to Roofing Materials
  • Cracked Sealants Around HVAC Units
  • Damaged or Misaligned Flashing

If water spots are already appearing on the ceiling, you need roof leak repair and may require a replacement.

What a Disaster Zone Roofing Company Does

At RestoreMasters, our hurricane damage repair contractors are on-site as soon as the roads are cleared and remain at work until our restoration obligations have been fulfilled. Our professionals begin by securing the perimeter to ensure no one gets injured. Then, hurricane debris removal and cleanup efforts start as our emergency roof repair teams tarp or shrink wrap the facility.

While everything is being secured, we conduct a comprehensive building and roof inspection to identify and document the damage from hurricane Ian. You will receive an in-depth report that can be used to support an insurance claim. We can also refer you to a public adjuster to help navigate the claims process and negotiate on your behalf.

The detailed inspection highlights all levels of damage, and we make recommendations about next steps. The building restoration process includes support infrastructure, roof replacement, gutters, siding, new windows, and doors, as well as a complete rebuild if necessary. Currently, RestoreMasters is also providing roofing and building restoration in Venice, FL.

By working with hurricane disaster relief contractors, the entire project can be brought under one umbrella. That streamlines the process and avoids delays. When the building construction is complete, every aspect of the structure will meet or exceed current fire safety and building regulations.

As nationally recognized hurricane repair contractors, our firm has amassed a team of experts, equipment, and all the resources to implement emergency roofing strategies and complete every necessary step in the disaster zone. Check out our portfolio of hurricane damage restoration projects.

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.

Several factors will determine the severity of roof damage: the height of the building and proximity to nearby structures, the quality of work by the original installers, the shape and angle of the roof, the age and type of roofing materials, and the impact from debris.

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 are a problem, they need to be addressed immediately. Experienced roofing contractors can either cover the affected area (or the entire roof) with a tarp or with a durable shrink wrap plastic membrane until long-term repairs can be made. Preventing water intrusion will help stop mold from growing.

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 insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.

Commercial property owners can rest assured that emergency response crews are available to assist with window, siding and roof damage, frozen pipe damage as well as turnkey restoration services.

We provide services to clients of all types, with hail or wind damage to tile roofing, such as: hospitals, medical facilities, churches, schools, colleges & universities, museums, condos, hotels, warehouses, resorts, retail properties, historical properties, industrial properties, and residential properties.
