Most of the Waynesville, Springboro, Dayton, and Cincinnati awoke at 3 AM on Wednesday the 22nd of June, 2016. Wind, constant thunder, responder sirens, and even tornado sirens blast eardrums. Many say the sky was “brighter than day” with all of the lightning. As more reports came in, it was clear that this was the biggest atmospheric event this decade has seen for many residents in Mason, Liberty Township, Loveland, and well beyond. At Roofing Annex, we’ve seen plenty of damage this year but it’s hard to wrap our heads around the number of Ohio roofs decimated via violent thunderstorm winds like this!

Our inspectors, canvassers, and owners have been traveling through the affected areas offering tarps to those in need as more rain is on the way. Insurance agencies have been calling us for emergency services. “It’s as bad as we’ve seen”, says owner Joey Michels.

Roofing Annex is one of the few roofing companies in the region that focuses on storm damage restoration. This means that we offer a higher level of roof inspections to really understand how an entire roofing system has fared during events like this. We educate our clients about the insurance claim process as well. Our staff works with field adjusters to expedite insurance claims. Most importantly, we restore roofs to new heights and our installations are backed by the manufacturer.

Take a Look at an Example of Waynesville Roofs Severely Damaged by This Storm

In an effort to document this storm for our own records we realized it’s fair to save them here as well for posterity. From large trees split by lightning or wind to smasher cars to roofs with the decking showing we saw it all and are only showing what we have permission to.


The most common issue we’re finding is loose shingles like those shown in the first image. That will inevitable turn into missing shingles in the near future but we’re seeing plenty of that to as in the middle image. One of the most concerning problems that we see that isn’t taken seriously are damaged ridge caps (image 3). Ridge caps are the first line of defense for all other shingles and the roofing system as a whole. Damage here opens up the flood gates to large systemic failure.
