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.

RestoreMasters dispatched roof hail damage and cleanup crews to Southern Alabama after a storm hit on January 9, 2022.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems. Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged. 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.

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. If roof leaks do occur, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) are covered with a durable shrink-wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place. That way you can prevent mold growth from water intrusion.
If your property was anywhere within the storm damage map, it would be best to get your roof inspected, even if you think your roof was not damaged. 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.
