Hailstones pounded parts of Louisiana as high winds and tornadoes inflicted property roof damage in Madison and Caldwell on Tuesday, Nov. 29th. Building owners across Louisiana required emergency roof repair to shore up leaks and prevent water damage.

RestoreMasters has experts in the area to secure structures and provide commercial roof inspection services to expedite insurance claims. Commercial, industrial, agricultural, and institutional property owners can call the roof repair office in Baton Rouge, LA, for a prompt response. 

“The National Weather Service Tuesday night reported structural damage from a ‘confirmed tornado’ in Caldwell Parish, and sheriff’s deputies are on the scene of significant damage. According to Caldwell Parish Sheriff Clay Bennett, two people were injured after several homes were damaged by a confirmed tornado,” KNOE 8 reported. “According to the NWS, they received reports of damage along Highway 126 six miles southeast of Clarks. The report followed another report of a radar-confirmed tornado striking just after 6 p.m. Tuesday 7 miles southeast of Columbia. The storm was moving at 45 miles an hour at the time of the warning.”

Property owners who sustained wind or roof hail damage are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. Hailstone strikes generally leave dents and cracks that rust and evolve into leaks. Tornadoes generate a vacuum-like force that pulls on rubber and metal roofing systems. A commercial roof inspection documents the wind and hail property damage for insurance claims.

A local high wind, tornado and hail damage map shows pronounced hailstorms and tornado damage paths across Louisiana. The yellow areas near Zwolle, Natchitoches, and Winnfield indicate hail up to 1.25 inches made ground fall. The orange concentrations show ice up to 1.75 inches pounded rooftops and outbuildings. Black streaks on the map of the tornado in Louisiana confirm twisters cut paths of destruction.

RestoreMasters completely rebuilt the Lighthouse Tabernacle in Calcasieu Parish, LA, after Hurricane Laura made landfall. The restoration process involved shrink wrap roofing to protect against water damage, as well as a new metal roof, siding, gutters, and interior renovations.

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

It's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment following severe weather like this so that you can determine whether you have 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.
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. Some storm damage symptoms take time to appear. And insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
