Friday afternoon and evening were chaotic for many residents in the central east area of Kansas. Heavy hail, high winds hit the Concordia area, with tornadoes close by. This outbreak was related to the Andover-Wichita storm that developed a havoc-creating tornado in communities south of Concordia. Rain, hail and winds pummeled the area. Hail ranged from pea size up to 2 inches in some areas. High winds snapped tree branches and stripped shingles off roofs. A house in Wabaunsee county was completely decimated, experts suspect tornadic activity, since tornadoes were spotted in the area. Power lines were snapped, and many citizens were without electricity until repairs could be made and electricity restored. RestoreMasters arrived to assist with emergency roof repair, providing shrink wrap or tarps to prevent water damage to home and commercial structures. They will continue on, working in the community to do assessments for insurance claims, assisting with reporting to insurance companies, as well as providing expert repair and restoration of damaged buildings and roofs.

A map of Concordia and the surrounding area indicates a portion of a much more widespread storm system. This portion of the storm pelted Concordia up to Calderhead with hail ranging up to 1.25” (yellow). But communities in and around Concordia got the largest hail from 1.25” (light orange) up to 2.5” (dark orange). Hail this size, propelled by high winds, can cause significant damage to roofs, gutter systems, and sidings, and cause not only cosmetic damage but structural damage, allowing water to seep in which can encourage mold growth and rot in attics, ceilings, and walls.

Severe storms, bringing hail, strong winds, or tornadoes can cause severe roof damage, by ripping off roofing systems. Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds. Roof damage can be severe or mild, depending on various factors which include: materials used on the roof, impact of debris, building height and proximity to other buildings, age, angle and shape of the roof and type of roofing.

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. In situations where you've got a leaking roof, experienced disaster roofing contractors can stop the leaks temporarily, by laying tarp or by using a durable shrink-wrap plastic membrane in the affected areas, or even over the entire roof. This will keep your building protected until permanent repairs can take place. This will help prevent mold infestation from water leaks.
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. Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately. And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.
Commercial property owners can rest assured that emergency response crews are available to assist with window, siding and roof damage, frozen pipe damage as well as turnkey restoration services.
The types of clients that consistently rely on RestoreMasters to assist them with hail or wind damage to tile roofing includes: all commercial buildings, hospitals, schools, churches, condos, apartments, hotels, resorts, restaurants, dealerships, retail properties, historical homes & buildings, warehouses and industrial properties.
