Common Roofing Repairs: High Wind Damage

Common Roofing Repairs: High Wind Damage

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.

    Along with hurricanes, high winds are a big problem for residents who live close to the coast here in Florida. Keeping an eye on the roof via visual inspections is the best way to spot when a repair is needed.

    Roof Leakage is very common problem these days. It can disturb the whole interior of your house. High speed winds are one of the main reasons for this. There are quite interesting ideas in the blog regarding roof repairing.

    For those areas that mostly experience hideous weather (even for those that don’t), it is indeed to have a schedule roof check-up. A small crack or leak will go a long way after some time.

    Repairs may be expensive and untimely most of the times, but having them fixed ASAP will actually save you more on the long run. Not only thru finances, but from the hassles as well.

    Thanks for sharing this! I agree that damages in your roof should be left to a professional. Not setting the shingles correctly can lead to a lot more damage and leakage later on. Plus, you don’t want to always be wondering if you actually fixed your roof correctly all the time!

    It’s always important to check your roof after heavy winds. If you’ve lost shingles and don’t find out, the damage can increase rapidly. As mentioned, there are multiple things that can go wrong following the initial damage. Mold is one of the last things you want to deal with on a roof. It can quickly compromise the integrity of a roof. Thanks for sharing!

    Any sort of home repair can be very costly and quite frankly usually come unexpected. My husband and I have been in the home remodeling business for many years now which has been a plus for us as homeowners. We’re currently getting into the mold remediation field and we’ve come to determine that taking preventive actions will always save you big bucks in the long run.
