Property owners in Decatur, TX, experienced the destructive force of tornadoes on Tuesday, Dec. 13th, as roofs were torn off and tractor-trailers flipped over. Many required emergency roof repair efforts as severe weather events pounded Wise County and the greater Dallas Fort Worth area.

RestoreMasters has commercial roof inspection and repair teams in the vicinity to prevent rain from causing preventable water damage. Commercial property owners who suffered losses or suspect wind damage are urged to call the roof repair office in Dallas, TX.

“Wise County officials stated the storm system entered the Decatur area at about 7 a.m. Tuesday and continued moving northeast, causing multiple reports of damages. The primary areas of concern were east of Paradise and south of Decatur,” ABC 8 News reported.

The images circulating on traditional news and social media show entire roofing systems torn off, leaving exposed rafters. Commercial property owners are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection to help expedite insurance claims.

Those not currently experiencing a leaking roof are encouraged to consider taking advantage of commercial roof inspection services. Wind roof damage can go unnoticed until water spots appear on ceilings. Documenting the high wind and tornado roof damage helps avoid having a claim denied later.

A local map of the tornado in Decatur shows a long black line that highlights the path of the twister. It runs from SFM 51 south of the Wise County Fairgrounds, across Route 81 and 380, and treks northeast toward Allison.

RestoreMasters emergency roof repair specialists responded to the devastation after tornadoes ripped through Southeast Oklahoma on November 4, 2022. Using techniques such as tarping and shrink wrapping, costly water damage can be avoided.

Severe storms, bringing hail, strong winds, or tornadoes can cause severe roof damage, by ripping off roofing systems.

Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour.

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.

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 deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
