WHAT DOES WIND DAMAGE LOOK LIKE?
Wind damage on a roof can manifest in various ways, and the appearance of the damage depends on factors such as wind speed, the age and condition of roofing materials, and the quality of the roof installation.
It’s important to inspect your roof for signs of wind damage after severe weather events. If you notice any of the above signs or are concerned about the condition of your roof, consult with a professional roofing contractor to schedule an inspection.
THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Missing shingles or roofing materials – High winds can lift and remove shingles or other roofing materials off the roof, including nails, tiles, or metal panels.
- Curled or Lifted Shingles – Winds can cause shingles to lift up, causing curling, bending, or peeling.
- Water stains – Wind damage on a roof can create holes or openings in the roof, allowing water to enter the ceiling or walls.
- Debris on the roof – Look for wind-driven debris, such as tree limbs, that can cause structural damage to the roof.
