Wind damage may not always be visible from the ground. Oftentimes, what appears to the homeowner from the ground as minor damage such as one or two shingles missing, compounds into total roof damage down the road. It is very important to have a qualified roofer inspect your home after any major windstorm to assess damage.
Signs of Wind damage
Wind damage ranges from missing shingles which can be seen from the ground to lifted shingles with broken glue seals. Asphalt shingles adhere to one another utilizing a strip of adhesive called a glue strip or sealant strip. When High winds break this seal, debris and dirt are blown into this glue area. This is like taking a piece of tape, running it along the floor, then turning around and trying to stick it to the wall, only having it fall back to the ground. These shingles will often not re-seal.
What to do After a Wind Storm
After a wind storm, it is important to have a qualified roofing contractor perform a thorough roof inspection to determine the amount of damage caused to your residence. If the damage is severe and interior leaks have resulted due to missing or loose shingles, it is important to mitigate interior damages and have your home protected with a temporary cover-up.
