National Roofing & Building Restoration Organization Responds to Southwest Florida Hurricane Damage

Oct 5, 2022

DALLAS, TEXAS - The Category 4 winds and torrential downpours destroyed roofs and flooded buildings across Fort Myers Beach, Port Charlotte, Cape Coral, and Venice, among others. Now the leaders of the hurricane commercial roofing and building restoration industry are in Southwest Florida, putting their experience to work after Hurricane Ian inflicted widespread property damage. 

RestoreMasters earned a national reputation for taking on emergency roofing and building restoration projects under adverse conditions. Ranked among the Top 100 Roofing Contractors in the country, the organization literally tracks storms and readies hurricane damage restoration contractors to bring in the personnel, certified technicians, and equipment necessary in disaster zones.

“In advance of Ian’s landfall, our teams were positioned to help property owners within hours instead of days. We brought in multiple semi-loads of roofing materials and equipment, along with crews that specialize in working disaster-type situations. Ready resources and our vast network allow us to help more people recover faster,” RestoreMasters CEO Nick Iovieno said.

Also ranked on the Inc. 5000, the operation carries $50 million in bonding capacity because commercial roofing crews and building restoration people are thrust into the same circumstances as ailing communities.

Its commercial roofing experts responded to Louisiana after Hurricane Laura and Ida devastated the region. Emergency roofing technicians deployed strategies such as shrink wrapping and tarping to prevent unnecessary water damage and losses. Then they rebuilt roofing systems and restored buildings efficiently because the operation has the capacity to truck-in equipment and materials to expedite roofing and restoration projects. Among the many success stories, the Lighthouse Tabernacle in Sulphur, LA, was brought back to its former glory.

Even a cursory look at the RestoreMasters’ website shows a penchant for charging into disaster areas. The company’s blog highlights its emergency roofing efforts following hailstorms and tornados. In December, RestoreMasters responded to the Upper Midwest after tornados, hail, and a rare Derecho storm drove winds above 90 mph and pounded buildings with hailstones the size of baseballs.

The men and women responding to Southwest Florida are a rare breed deserving of a Hollywood movie. That’s largely because working in a post-hurricane environment proves taxing, as hurricane damage restoration contractors and team members live away from home under challenging conditions until the job is done. But the support of RestoreMasters’ national-level resources helps ease the process, so they can deliver vital services.

The wreckage strewn across private properties calls for immediate hurricane debris removal and cleanup crews to haul it away. Safely performing hurricane cleanup involves bringing in certified technicians because hazardous and mold-laced materials may be among the debris.

Along with a safe and orderly cleanup, water removal must be performed. RestoreMasters uses state-of-the-art equipment to siphon away standing pools and extract moisture from a building’s infrastructure, flooring, and contents. Unless all the moisture is mitigated, Southwest Florida property owners will likely be exposed to the health risks of black mold.

Having undertaken building restoration projects in the aftermath of natural disasters, the seasoned hurricane damage restoration contractors say they are ready to reverse the devastation inflicted by Ian. They are keenly aware that flat roofing systems sustained tears from high winds and hard impacts. Sloped roofs lost shingles, and metal roofing panels flew off.

As certified and Florida-licensed hurricane damage restoration contractors, RestoreMasters oversees every phase of the building restoration. This entails having the bandwidth to repair or replace siding, gutters, windows, doors, as well as structural elements.
