Hurricane Damage Restoration
DISASTER RESPONSE SERVICES
Hurricane damage restoration services help protect your property with mitigation actions immediately following a hurricane.
And later help restore and rebuild your property to pre-storm condition.
Hurricane force winds can cause immediate and severe roof leaks, flooding and structural damage – leaving interior assets and equipment vulnerable.
Immediate action is necessary to minimize property damage.
In a disaster situation – like a hurricane or tornado – where roofing materials are torn off or severely damaged…
…you need a team of professionals that can mobilize quickly to start emergency roof repairs and begin the hurricane restoration process.
A quick response time can mean the difference between recovery and total loss.

Hurricane Damage Roof Repair
Hurricane roof repair and restoration often begins with fixing structural damage to your roof.
If you’ve just been through a hurricane that caused wind damage to your roof, you may have had parts of your roof lifted or entirely ripped off.
When severe roof damage occurs, it may not be enough to simply tarp or shrink wrap the affected area.
If you’ve got sections of your roof missing, structural roof repairs will need to be completed first to build back a solid surface.
Then, you can install temporary roofing materials to prevent more roof leaks, while working through the insurance process to get a permanent replacement approved.
Below are a few photos of roofs that needed immediate and aggressive action for emergency roof repairs.
Stopping Roof Leaks From Hurricane Damage
Temporary roofing materials will help stop roof leaks and prevent further damage.
Following a hurricane…
…temporary roofing can include emergency roof tarping if you need a relatively short-term solution.
When you’re looking for a longer-term temporary solution, shrink wrapping the roof may be the best option, as roof shrink wrap lasts longer than typical blue roof tarps.
If you have a flat roof, we may install a seam-welded loose lay TPO membrane as a temporary emergency repair. Below is a roofing project where the crew is laying a temporary TPO membrane after the flat roof was torn off.
Once the permanent roof replacement is approved by insurance, our crews will return to perform a total TPO roof replacement, including new insulation.
In each hurricane damage situation, RestoreMasters will build back a solid surface then cover it with loose lay TPO, roof tarps or shrink wrap.

How long does a shrink wrap roof seal last?
A shrink wrap roof seal is a temporary solution to prevent water leaks, while you are waiting for your roofer to install a permanent roof. In areas hit by a major disaster, sometimes roofers are backed up for several weeks or months. Some shrink wrap roofs are guaranteed for a year or longer, up to certain wind speeds. Check with your project manager.
How long does a blue roof tarp last?
Temporary tarping generally can last a few months. Longer term tarp installation is available. Wind and subsequent storm activity will affect its service life. Check with your project manager to learn about the best options for your project.
