What Types Of Roof Damage Does High Wind Cause?

A little breeze here and there is nice, but when that breeze turns into a full blown 60 mph wind, everything goes downhill. The best thing to do when strong winds hit is to remain calm and safe inside your home until it passes.

Usually strong winds will carry with it hail, which brings on a whole other damage to your roof.

But since we’re on the topic of damages that wind can do to your roof, we’ll lay out the top damages you can expect to see.

Strong winds can:

  • Lift your shingles completely off the roof. 
  • Bend shingles and cause cracks and creases.
  • Loosen staples and nails that holds the shingles in place
  • lifts the staples and nails off the shingle
  • Missing shingles in multiple places on your roof
  • Debris and tree branches hitting your roof, sometimes they can be large enough to puncture through your roof.
  • Lift off the membrane and underlying layers, leaving your roof completely exposed.

As you can see wind alone can cause serious damage to your roofing system. 

The best thing you can do is always keep your roof ready with proper yearly roof inspection. Older and poorly installed roofs will suffer great damage and it will be an expensive cost to fix.
