Johnson County roofers have their work cut out for them. At least four tornadoes have touched down in Johnson, Jackson and Cass counties this afternoon. You may have seen one of these terrifying twisters if you were in Johnson County, near:
- Interstate 435 and State Line Road
- 151st Street and Roe Avenue
- 137th Street and Metcalf Avenue or
- 167th Street and Nall Avenue.
Oak Park Mall is now being converted into a shelter for nearby residents. This latest batch of funnel clouds is said to be part of a raging storm system that stretched from eastern Kansas up to Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan and even Wisconsin.
How Tornadoes Affect Roofs
Roofers inspect for the following types of Kansas tornado roof damage:
- Cracks (from flying debris)
- Gouges (from flying debris)
- Tears (from flying debris or high winds)
- Ripped-up Edges (from high winds)
- Displaced or dented gutters

How To Find A Reputable Roofing Contractor…
Local roofers warn homeowners to search very carefully for someone to inspect and complete their post-tornado roofing job. When a storm rolls into town, so do the shysters and scam artists. You may have someone show up at your door offering you a “free roof” or a surprisingly low bid. It’s important that you resist the temptation to go with the lowest price offer and do your homework before signing anything! There have been countless tales of homeowners who unknowingly signed away their rights to negotiate with their homeowners insurance company regarding any repairs or renovations. You’ll know a “storm chaser” the moment you see him. He’ll probably arrive at your doorstep trying to pressure you to sign something right away and, if you look carefully at his vehicle, he’ll probably have an out-of-state license plate (a dead giveaway!) Sometimes these fly-by-night contractors will have a fake local address, but you will not find their listing on the Better Business Bureau site. These people never have legitimate certifications, insurance certificates or credentials to show you. They never have local references you can contact. DO NOT sign with a storm chaser!
