Signs of wind damage
High winds can lift shingles, causing them to curl or even tear off completely. Look for visible gaps or patches where shingles are missing from your roof.
Visible Debris Impact
Check for signs of debris impact such as fallen branches or tree limbs on the roof or in your yard after a storm. These impacts can cause dents, cracks, and damage to the roof’s surface.
Wind damage may not always be immediately visible from the outside. If you notice new leaks or water stains on your ceiling or walls after a windstorm, it could indicate damage to your roof that is allowing water to infiltrate your home.
Loose Flashing or Soffits
Strong winds can dislodge flashing (the metal pieces that seal roof transitions) or soffits (the underside of roof overhangs), leaving openings that can lead to leaks and further damage.
Gutter and Downspout Damage
Winds can also affect your gutter system. Look for bent or detached gutters, as well as damage to downspouts. If your gutter system is compromised, it can lead to improper water drainage and potential water damage
Strong winds can lift shingles enough to expose the underlayment—a secondary layer of protection beneath the shingles. If you see parts of the underlayment, it indicates that your roof’s protective layers have been compromised.
Why fix Wind Damage as fast as possible?
Fixing wind damage as quickly as possible is essential to safeguarding your home’s well-being and preventing potential complications. Rapid repairs prevent minor issues from spiraling into major structural problems, saving you time and money in the long run.
Prevent Further Damage
Promptly addressing wind damage helps prevent minor issues from escalating into major problems.
Wind-damaged areas can compromise your home’s insulation, leading to increased energy consumption as your HVAC system struggles to regulate indoor temperatures.
Many insurance policies require homeowners to mitigate damage promptly. Swift action not only prevents denied claims due to negligence but also ensures proper documentation of the initial damage for smoother claim processing.
