Roof Repair, Building Restoration Contractor Fixes Hail, Wind & Tornado Damage in Southern Mississippi Following November 29, 2022 Storm
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
Hailstones, high winds, and tornadoes ravaged Southern Mississippi on Tuesday, Nov. 29th, leaving an aftermath of hail and wind damage requiring emergency roof repair and building restoration services.
RestoreMasters has emergency roof repair and inspection technicians in the area. Commercial, agricultural and institutional building owners can call the roof repair office in Jackson, MS, for a prompt response.
“Residents in several towns across Louisiana and Mississippi took cover as tornado sirens blared late Tuesday, and forecasters warned of the threat of strong twisters capable of tracking long distances on the ground as a severe weather outbreak erupted in the Deep South,” according to the Associated Press.
Fox Weather posted footage of tornadoes ripping through the South, “damaging churches and destroying homes.”
Effected commercial, agricultural, and institutional property owners are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. A thorough commercial roof inspection following intense storms can identify sometimes unnoticed high wind and hail roof damage that doesn’t immediately leak. Not taking advantage of commercial roof inspection services can result in delays, and insurance carriers denying claims.
A local high wind, tornado, and hail damage map shows a pair of hailstorms sweeping across Southern Mississippi. Yellow sections indicate hail up to 1.25 inches pelted areas east of McComb and north of Columbia. The orange concentrations at the center of those storm fronts point to hailstones up to 1.75 inches inflicting roof hail damage.
The black streaks near Laurel, McComb, and Leakesville, prove that tornadoes touched down, tearing paths of destruction.

RestoreMasters emergency roof repair teams and commercial building inspectors provided services to ailing property owners across Arkansas after multiple tornadoes caused widespread wind roof damage on November 4, 2022.
Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems.
Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour.
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.
Following severe weather like this, it's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment to determine whether or not you have roof damage from hail or wind.
If roof leaks do occur, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) are covered with a durable shrink-wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place. That way you can prevent mold growth from water intrusion.
Get your roof inspected, even if you think there is no problem, especially if your property falls anywhere within the area of the hail and wind damage map.
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.
