Commercial Roofing & Restoration
From bouldercast.com eastern Colorado had natural fireworks shows, when eight supercells passed over, dumping huge hail and mayhem throughout the area. Hail was up to baseball size with wind gusts of up to 75 mph. Hail that size, dropping at high speed and then propelled by high winds, can cause great damage to home and commercial building roofs.
RestoreMasters has residential and commercial roof inspectors in the area to provide free roof inspections to assess the damage caused by hail, high winds, and rain. This was one of the numerous storms that raged throughout the west on June 7th, like the wind and hail storm in Hastings, NE.

RestoreMasters encourages residential and commercial property owners to be diligent about roof inspections, as hail and wind damage can allow water in, especially during wind-driven rain storms. The water along with the warmth from the sun shining on the roof, or warmth from indoor heating systems can create prime conditions for mold growth. Irradicating mold is a much more extensive process than simply repairing damage, not to mention the health issues it can cause.
Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged. 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.
