The Lasting Effects of Wind Damage

Wind damage can have multiple lasting effects on a roofing structure. Receiving a professional inspection on your roof after a hurricane or major wind event has taken place is important. Not all damage caused by the wind can be easy to spot. You might notice a few missing shingles but there could be deeper issues at play. Here are some of the top signs that you need to contact a contractor immediately to check for the lasting effects of wind damage!

Curled Shingles

If you see shingles curling along the edges of your roof, it’s likely that you could file an insurance claim for the win damage that has occurred. The professional may have to replace your roof if the curling is severe.

Shingles Lifted

When the wind blows against the side of your home over an extended period of time this can often break up the sealant that holds the shingles against the flat part of your roof. Strong winds could continue to bend your roofing tiles and as the wind blows along with the shingles, this can lead to a permanent lift with the bond of your shingle breaking.

Shingle Misalignment

A misaligned shingle can often occur as a result of a poor installation but it can be worsened with wind damage. Misaligned shingles can quickly lead to missing shingles and your roofing company will need to evaluate whether you need a replacement.

Storm damage can occur on almost any type of roofing system and whether you have a metal roof, concrete roof or traditional asphalt shingle, it is important to manage the lasting effects of wind damage over time.  If you need access to repairs or an inspection after roofing damage has occurred, contact us today!
