Tornadoes drove high winds and hailstones, taking Northeast Texas by surprise as storms escalated well beyond meteorologist predictions on Friday, Nov. 4th. Emergency roof repair crews have been dispatched to the area after wind speeds reached 170 mph and tornadoes were upgraded to EF-4. RestoreMasters roofing contractors are fielding calls and commercial building owners can contact them at the roof repair office in Dallas, TX.

“The severe weather that dumped rain across the Dallas-Fort Worth area Friday was also responsible for at least nine tornadoes in Texas. The National Weather Service spent the weekend surveying damage in Lamar and Henderson Counties,” according to Fox 4. “They determined at an EF-3 tornado with winds up to 160 miles per hour touched down in Powderly in Lamar County. Officials said it destroyed a total of 32 homes and other structures. An additional 41 buildings suffered major damage.”

Commercial, agricultural, and institutional building owners are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. High winds, hailstone strikes, and flying debris can result in subtle damage that requires an experienced commercial roof inspection services professional to identify and document in support of an insurance claim.

A local map of the tornado damage shows a long gray, high-wind front moved across Northeast Texas. Black lines indicate upwards of nine tornadoes touched down. The yellow and orange clusters demonstrate ice chunks ranging from 1.25 to 1.75 inches inflicted hail roof damage.

RestoreMasters routinely secures impacted buildings and field teams are available to conduct a comprehensive commercial roof inspection. Emergency roof repair teams and inspectors responded to Fort Stockton, TX on October 10, 2022, to fix roof hail damage after a storm and flooding impacted the area.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems.

Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph.

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.

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.

Even if you don't think your roof was damaged, you will want to get your roof inspected if your property falls anywhere within the hail damage map.

Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately.

And insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
