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.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage.

Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds.

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.

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.

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.

Rather than believing your roof is not damaged, if your property is anywhere in the area of the storm damage map, then you will want to get your roof inspected.

Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately.

And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
