Did the WIND damage your ROOF?
HOW WIND DAMAGES YOUR ROOF?
The effect of wind moving over a roof is not systematic. Areas like the corners and perimeter of the roof can be susceptible to higher wind pressures, while the center of the roof might have lower stresses. According to the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), most wind damage to a roof starts on the edges. Anywhere that the asphalt shingles are even a little bit loose, wind can get below them and push them up, thus giving the wind more to grab onto the next time and creating a chain peeling effect. This type of wind damage can start very small, but continue to grow over time through repeated exposure to wind. Once a whole corner of insulation is exposed, rain can get in and start to cause leaks and water damage. It’s important to make sure that the edges and corners of your roof are strong enough and in good condition to withstand these high winds. You can avoid this type of wind damage to your roof by scheduling a free roof inspection and consultation with one of our roofing experts today!
YOUR ROOF CAN HAVE UNSEEN DAMAGES
Even when a storm produces no rain or hail, your roof can still sustain damage. Strong winds can create stress points on a roof that, over time, can weaken and become compromised. While roofs are designed to resist typical wind loads, they can be incrementally damaged over the years by high winds and debris carried by the wind. Replacing missing shingles and fixing the initial roof damage quickly is important to prevent subsequent water damage and other high costs that will inevitably result from a roof system that is not working as it should.
