Wind Damage to Roof and Shingles
Strong winds can be very damaging to roofs and shingles. Wind Damage to a roof can come in many forms, from a single shingle that needs to be replaced to an entire roof being blown off a structure. Wind damage will cause the shingle to break the original seal of the shingle. Many homeowners think if the shingle is not missing that they do not have wind damage. This is not the case. Be sure to have one of our experienced technicians give you your free assessment. Homeowners’ insurance policies often cover wind damage to roofs.
HAIL DAMAGE TO ROOF AND SHINGLES
Hail Damage to Asphalt Shingles occurs when the shingle suffers granule loss or bruising of the matting. Exposing the organic base center to ultraviolet rays can cause further deterioration of the material, shortening the life by up to 40%. Homeowners’ insurance policies often cover wind damage to roofs.

Roofing Materials & Types
3-Tab and Architectural style shingles are the most commonly used roofing material in North America mainly because they are economical and versatile, work well on steep-sloped roofs, are sunlight and weather resistant, require little-to-no maintenance and are reasonably priced. In addition, asphalt shingles are also easy to cut, fasten, and fit, as well as being compatible with many different kinds of flashing and edging products. While there are several types of asphalt shingles, at Southern Star Construction, we generally recommend architectural shingles because they are reasonably priced and offer great durability along with an extended warranty.
TILE AND SLATE ROOFING
A tile is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as ceramic, stone, metal, or even glass. Tile is a great roofing material for many reasons: it is strong, durable, and waterproof meaning that it isn’t vulnerable to rot as other shingles can be. Tile also offers great fire protection and comes in many shapes and colors for the artistic minded buyer. Tile and slate provide an aesthetic appeal difficult to match.
Cedar shakes have long been a roofing solution that satisfies both requirements for beauty and durability in a roof. They are especially appropriate where historical preservation is a priority. Cedar shakes make a great roofing solution when rustic beauty and a natural appearance is the client’s priority.
FLAT ROOFS / RUBBER ROOFS (EPDM AND TPO)
EPDM and TPO are great solutions for those difficult low slope or even flat areas. These single ply roofing systems can be installed relatively easy over large or small areas. Flat roofs are increasingly common for commercial buildings, apartments, sunrooms, garages, porches, and even single-family homes.
Standing seam metal roofs have become enormously popular, and are especially suiting for homes located on lakes and mountain settings due to its longevity. Metal roofs are durable, fire-resistant, and provide an excellent strength to weight ratio which is why they are often used for very large buildings, stadiums, and other commercial structures. New metal roofing materials offer a stylish assortment of color and designs.
