Wind Damage Roof Repair
While hail damage is what everyone thinks of when they hear about storm damage, high winds can be just as detrimental to a roof. Strong winds from a severe storm can have a varying effect on different parts of a roof, and the damage done in the same neighborhood can vary from home to home due to wind patterns.
The force of wind is greater at the edge of the roofline, which is why most wind damage to a roof tends to occur at the edges and then lessen toward the center. Shingles may be lifted or split. Debris such as dirt and leaves can be blown underneath shingles, causing damage to the underpinning and structure of your roof and leading to leaks. Higher-speed winds can tear shingles off the roof entirely, leaving your roof exposed to the elements. A large area of missing shingles indicates the need for a full roof replacement.
How to Spot Wind Damage
You can look for several signs of wind damage to a roof. Look at the shingles from the ground. Do they appear damaged or out of place? Are some shingles missing? Take note of shingles that are split, curling or excessively worn. If you see any of these signs, call Minnesota’s 1st Choice to schedule an inspection.
