Six tornadoes were confirmed in Tarrant County as high winds and flying debris caused extensive roof damage in Sansom Park, Texas, Tuesday, Dec. 13th.

Generating wind speeds as high as 110 mph, emergency roof repair was needed to prevent rain flooding in through gaping holes. RestoreMasters has technicians in the area to perform commercial roof inspection services. Impacted property owners can call the roof repair office in Dallas, TX, for a prompt response.

“A Sansom Park official said that a small business in the 5400 block of Urban View had some damage,” according to the Fort Worth Star Telegraph. “The Sansom Park fire chief and the Division of Emergency Management representative for Tarrant County confirmed one home was heavily damaged in the storm.”

Property owners are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection to support insurance claims. It’s critical to schedule a commercial roof inspection following a high-wind event because roof leaks can surface months later. Having a high wind or roof hail damage inspection report helps prevent claims denials.

A local map of the tornado in Sansom Park shows a black line where a tornado cut a path from the Marion Sansom Park area, across Route 199, to the outskirts of the Fort Worth Meacham International Airport.

The National Weather Service hail, high wind, and tornado map for Wednesday, Dec. 13th, shows a dense cluster of storms in Northeast Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Southern Arkansas. All told, eight hailstorms, 29 high-wind incidents, and 32 tornados were reported over 24 hours. Traditional news and social media outlets highlighted the severity of the Sansom Park and Tarrant County tornado damage.

  • Arlington: Property owners sustained roof hail damage when ice the size of quarters blanketed the area.
  • Blue Mound: A tornado inflicted damage to exterior walls and roofing systems of airport hangars in Tarrant County.
  • Grapevine: Commercial buildings and schools suffered extreme roof damage. The Grapevine Mills Mall shuttered, and the Sam’s Club roof was left in tatters.
  • North Richland Hills: Roof wind damage to commercial properties was reported through traditional news and social media platforms.
  • Sansom Park: The confirmed EF-1 tornado downed trees, utility poles and left significant wind roof damage.

Tornadoes and high winds typically leave roof damage that goes undetected for long periods. Scheduling a commercial roof inspection following a storm identifies problems before roof leaks cause water damage. RestoreMasters responded to Fort Stockton, TX, on October 10, 2022, after hail stones and floods caused water and roof damage.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems. Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds. 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.

Getting a roof inspection & property damage assessment after severe weather like this is important for determining whether you need to address 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.
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. Many storm damage symptoms are not always evident immediately. And insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
