YOUR ROOF & WIND DAMAGE

While​ your ​roof​ is designed​ ​to​ ​resist​ ​high-speed​ ​winds. October 2016 winds of hurricane Matthew, ​and​ ​September​ ​2017​ ​​Hurricane​ ​Irma however damaged​ even​ ​the​ ​most​ ​well-built​ ​roof tops.

Wind damage is often difficult to analyze.  The more wind damage a roof sustains, the less likely it is to hold up next time strong winds pass through.

Depending on your roof and how the storm moves through, you may see movement of your roof’s shingles or membrane.

This can cause shingles to fly off leaving parts of your roof exposed to further wind and rain. If water gets into your roof this can cause damage to your home’s structure and possibly damage sheet rock, this can also cause mold and mildew within your home.

Shingles can be damaged due to wind causing further damage to your roof if the damage is bad enough, it can cause leaking and further damage inside of your home.
