Contractor Fixes High Wind & Tornado Roof Damage After Twisters Tear Through Montgomery County, Alabama, on November 29, 2022.
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
Deadly twisters charged across Montgomery County, AL, bringing high winds and widespread property damage, requiring emergency roof repair and restoration services on Tuesday, Nov. 29th. Residents woke Wednesday morning to disaster zones from winds that topped 110 mph.
RestoreMasters dispatched repair crews and commercial roof inspection services to help property owners assess losses. Owners who suffered obvious damage and those concerned their property may have been compromised can call the roof repair office in Birmingham, AL, for assistance.
“The National Weather Service Office in Birmingham classified the storm as an EF-2 tornado with winds estimated at 115 miles per hour. NWS said the tornado touched down about 3 a.m. Montgomery County Emergency Management Director Christina Thornton said heavy rescue efforts are going on in the area and portions of Lower Wetumpka Road are closed to U.S. 231,” according to the Montgomery Advisor. “Several homes and other buildings have received ‘substantial’ damage, she said. Residents in the Flatwood community reported losing roofs, patios and shingles on their homes. The storm also caused widespread damage in south Elmore County along Rifle Range Road and in the Redland area.”
Montgomery County commercial, agricultural, and institutional building owners are advised to request a complimentary roof inspection. High winds and the vacuum force created by twisters pull, push, and lift roofing systems. Even if they are not showing immediate signs of roof wind damage, leaks will eventually present. A timely commercial roof inspection documents the effects of the catastrophic weather event to support an insurance claim.
A local map of the tornado in Montgomery County shows a black streak north of the metro area, cutting a path from west to east. The twister stretches from the Boylston, trekking northeast across Blue Ridge and beyond Wetumpka, toward Burlington along Highway 14.

We had literally parked not 100 feet from where the tornado crossed the road in Fruitdale Alabama!!! We thought it was a good spot to observe the storm and the impressive lightning show. Should've known that intense lightning meant imminent danger!! #fruitdale #tornado #alwx pic.twitter.com/bC1I9Dn5Mb— Josh Griffith ⚡ (@JoshGriffithWX) November 30, 2022

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage.
Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged.
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.
It's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment following severe weather like this so that you can determine whether you have roof damage from hail or high winds.
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.
Many storm damage symptoms are not always evident immediately.
And insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
