Wind is one of the most common causes of roof damage, especially in Florida which might almost be called the windy state and not just the Sunshine State. Not only do we have a prolonged hurricane season to think about, but there are also many tropical storms, tornadoes, and severe thunderstorms each year.
It helps to understand how wind works at damaging your roofing so you can find ways to prevent it. And when it does happen, you need to act quickly to get that roof repair done before water comes in or before the wind does additional damage.
5 Ways Wind Causes Damage To Your Roofing
When you think about it, it's ironic that something as nearly weightless as air could do damage to relatively weighty objects like the shingles that cover your roof - but it surely can. When winds start moving at 50 miles per hour or faster, serious danger of roof damage exists; and when wind speeds hit 100 mph or more, such damage becomes likely.
Here are the five most common ways that wind manages to impact roofing and leave you in need of a roof repair:
Every roof repair need is urgent. Failing to give it prompt attention may allow things to fester out of control.
A few loose or missing shingles create an opening for water and a roof leak. Curled shingles maybe could be fixed - but wait too long, and they may break. Loosened flashing may be ripped off entirely by the wind if not secured again in its place. The list goes on. Waiting could cause more damage and cost you more - including interior water damage, so it's best to act quickly.
