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 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.
Hail and Wind damage is the primary cause of roof damage. Storm Damage that goes undetected can cause the roof to leak and possibly cause more damage in the future. Even if you are not experiencing leaks right now, you could still have significant storm damage that you are not aware of. Call us as soon as you detect any sign of a leak. This may include stains anywhere on walls or ceilings and especially around fireplaces and other roof penetrations, such as exhaust vents. The sooner you can address the leak, the less likely you will experience additional internal damage to sheathing and sheet rock or other building structure
