Exterior Building Restoration
When a destructive weather force or fire damages a commercial building, wide-reaching repair and replacement efforts are needed.
At RestoreMasters, we provide interior and exterior construction as well as roof repairs to minimize a property owner’s losses.
The sooner commercial building restoration services can be completed, the sooner you can reopen.
What is the Building Envelope?
Everyday people talk about the components of a building, such as a roof, siding, foundation, windows and doors.
When all of these elements are considered together, they comprise what construction professionals refer to as the building envelope.
A structurally sound building envelope acts like a shield against catastrophic weather and the ensuing water damage.
The exterior construction elements that form a commercial building envelope are designed to protect its interior and contents.
If your commercial building has been impacted by a high wind event, hurricane, tornado, or hailstorm, it’s crucial to schedule a building and roof inspection to ensure water penetrations do not weaken rafters, load-bearing infrastructure, and the valuable contents inside your facility.
Building Damage That Requires Exterior Restoration
It’s important for commercial building owners and property managers to understand that extreme weather inflicts a wide range of obvious and subtle damage that may require commercial building restoration and repair.
These are ways destruction storms affect commercial, agricultural, and institutional building envelopes.
It’s not unusual to think about hail damage as an exterior restoration issue specific to the roofing system.
Roof hail damage typically occurs when fast-moving ice the size of quarters to baseballs strike rooftops.
Gutters show obvious damage while the cracks around ventilation pipes and HVAC units may go undetected.
Hailstorms are also accompanied by fierce straight-line winds and strong gusts as well. That means hail is pushed into siding, windows, and doors.
The dents and cracks left behind are not necessarily purely cosmetic.
Hard impacts can affect the siding, windows, and exterior insulation finishing system, allowing moisture to infiltrate and hazardous molds to grow behind walls.
A high wind event can reach upwards of 74 mph before television news stations consider it a named storm.
Winds in the 40-50 mph range can easily tear singles and roofing panels off buildings.
And snapped limbs, falling trees, and flying debris break window panes and can easily destroy the siding of buildings.
If your property looks even remotely dinged or dented following a high-wind storm, contact a commercial building restoration specialist to conduct a thorough inspection.
Hurricane & Tornado Damage
When a hurricane makes landfall, the need for commercial building restoration services is obvious.
Roofs are badly damaged, swaths of siding are ruined, and other exterior construction aspects require hurricane damage restoration services.
Otherwise, driving rains will seep through the roof, siding, windows, and compromised sealants and flashing.
The need for tornado damage restoration services is not always as clear.
Near misses sometimes leave property owners feeling relieved they escaped disaster.
But the ferocious winds of a tornado lift and fling debris into windows, doors, siding, and gutters, among other parts of the building envelope.
And the vacuum-like force of a tornado’s suction pulls on everything around it.
If a tornado passed through your area, err on the side of caution and schedule an inspection.
Fire damage restoration efforts rank among the most comprehensive because they call for wide-reaching processes before interior or exterior construction can begin.
Firefighters who extinguish the blaze usually drench the building with fire suppressants and water.
That means damage to the roofing system, windows, doors, rails, gutters, and others will require water removal.
The essential point is that fire doesn’t just create charred remains and smoke damage.
Fire damage restoration often calls for a new roof, rafters, siding, and structural supports, among others.
Flood & Water Damage
When torrential rains cause levees to give way or rivers to overflow, flooded building owners need a commercial building restoration organization that handles every step of the rehabilitation process.
This means securing a perimeter, removing debris, performing water removal, and prepping the site for interior and exterior construction.
Exterior Building Restoration & Construction Services
An exterior building restoration contractor addresses damaged and weakened elements of a structure following a catastrophic storm or devastating fire.
Until the building envelope is secure, the interior of a facility and its contents remain at risk.
The following are items a commercial building restoration professional handles.
A storm may cause water damage to rafters and load-bearing walls.
Reconstructing many of these are routine reconstruction duties for experienced crews.
But fires and catastrophic weather can compromise the structural integrity of a building.
That’s why we provide engineered restoration services to ensure your property exceeds fire safety and building codes.
As an experienced roofing contractor with offices in all 50 states, RestoreMasters repairs and replaces roofing systems every day.
Our trained and certified technicians perform a thorough roof inspection.
We provide a detailed report and reliable roof repair or replacement estimate to help property owners make informed decisions.
Windows & Doors
Windows and doors take the brunt of high wind and hailstorms. It’s essential to replace badly damaged windows and doors with premium products.
Quality window and door restoration can improve property values when installed by an expert.
Walls, Siding & Cladding
The impulse to fill dents and cracks on a building’s exterior may not lead to a good result.
When hail and flying debris hits the exterior, the seemingly minor damage allows water to penetrate siding materials such as stucco, vinyl, metal, Hardie board, wooden shingles, clapboard, and engineered products.
Exterior restoration is typically covered by commercial building insurance and new siding usually raises property values.

The leadership team at RestoreMasters understands that property managers prefer to streamline the building restoration process and save money.
That’s why our exterior construction crews are skilled at rebuilding or repairing stairs and rails. We can also handle walkways and hardscapes if necessary.
