Wind Damage to Roof: What to Do?


Wind Damage to Roof: What to Do Now?

Your roof is damaged by high winds, rain, thunderstorms; now what to do? First off, be thankful if it was just the roof which was damaged. Life is precious, and as long as no one was seriously injured, you’re doing okay. Now, your roof may have a hole, it may have some loose shingles, it may even have scattered pieces of debris waiting to sink into the roof itself over time due to its heavy weight. Let’s explore the various types of wind storms, their severity, and how they may affect your roof.

Wind Can be Very Damaging to Your Roof in Certain Scenarios

Wind storms kick up a lot of debris, knock down trees, rip shingles off of roofs, and so much more. The damage done by wind storms can be costly, time consuming, and frustrating. Thankfully, with American Remodeling, you can rest assured you’re in good hands. We offer efficient pricing, effective service, and we have a true passion for roofing. These traits are noticed right from the start of our projects, all the way through our customer service satisfaction guarantee.

How is a Roof Damaged By Wind?

Wind can be mild, moderate, or severe. Whichever level of wind your home is experiencing, you’re at risk for some level of roof damage. Said damage could be the result of falling trees, kicked up debris, shingles flying off, or even a combination of all of the above. Wind doesn’t show much mercy once it really starts to pick up. It may cause even more damage to your home than just your roof. It’s important to always have a look around and see if there are any dead trees with weak limbs on your property. Properly removing those dead tree limbs with the help of an arborist could save you tens of thousands of dollars in the future.

What is the Best Roof for High Wind Areas?

The best roof for high wind areas is a roof which is durable and weather resistant for the most part. Our favorite roof for this style of weather is a metal roof. Metal roofs tend to be one of the most durable roof styles we offer and the metal roof will surely stand the rest of time against even some of the stronger wind storms.

Wind Speed Damage

Below are estimates of the damage a roof mat experiences when encountering mild, moderate, and severe wind speeds.

•45 – 60 mph: tree branches may fall, loose shingles may fly off

•60 – 75 mph: full trees may fall onto roof, shingles will likely fly off resulting in an exposed and damaged roof surface

•75 – 89 mph: possible severe roof damage and structural damage to home

•90+ mph: significant potential of damage to entire property and possessions
