Wind can be a concern for homeowners when it comes to longevity of your roof. High winds that accompany rainstorms, hurricanes, and hail can be a leading factor of roof deterioration.
One thing you can do to mitigate this kind of damage is to schedule a roof inspection for your home soon after episodes of high winds. Roofing repairs related to high wind damage are among the most common types of roofing repair you will encounter as a homeowner.
Common Roofing Repairs: High Wind Damage
According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), approaching wind speeds can more than double as the air currents pass over your roof. The increase in wind speed can easily dislodge shingles and shakes from the roof. The higher the winds, the more damage your home is likely to sustain.
Missing, broken, or bruised roof materials can lead to a variety of problems in your home, including:
• Water damage
• Mold and mildew
• Loss of insulation, leading to higher energy bills
Periodic roof inspections in the fall and spring can help you identify potential roof repairs related to high winds. Complete roof repairs as promptly as possible to minimize the damage to your home. Putting off an affordable repair leaves your home vulnerable to more damage, leading to more costly and extensive work later on.
Look not only at your home’s roofing, but at the gutters and siding as well. Category 1 and tropical storm level winds can easily sweep away these components, too. Call your local roofing contractor to inspect these areas, and to perform repairs that will keep your home in tip-top shape.
