Residential Roofing

 

 

Wind damage


License #295063

Typically begins at the areas of the roof affected by the greatest uplift forces due to aerodynamic effects: ridges, windward roof corners, windwards eaves, windward rakes, and leeward sides of ridges. Because greater wind speeds, and hence greater wind – generated forces, are found higher above the ground, the exposure of the building plays a large role in the wind forces which affect a roof. Wind generated forces can lift shingles that were not bonded and even debond sealed shingles. Wind forces which are strong enough to debond a sealed shingle will cause the shingle to be bent upslope; this result in a crease along the upslope edge of the exposure or in the shingle being torn away completely. Still stronger winds can tear away areas of multiple shingles from slopes.

Things we look for:
Loose and missing shingles - This is the most telling sign that wind has damaged your roof and should be remedied immediately. If you have shingles that are damaged, then they run the risk of failing. If shingles are missing completely, then that exposes your roof and property to water damage that could end up costing you down the road.

Hail damage

Damage to roofing materials is a reduction in water -shedding capability or expected service life. Composition shingle are damaged when they are “bruised” or are punctured by hailstones. The damage is immediate and is noticeable visually and/or tactilely by feeling the top surface of a shingle. A hail - caused fracture or rupture is always visible in the bottom surface of a shingle. The larger the hail, typically the fewer and farther apart the hailstones fall. Since the pattern of hail -falls is random, their impact marks on the roof are widely distributed.

In order to know if your home has actual hail damage, the roof must be inspected by one of our certificated roofing inspectors who has training, knowledge, and experience in being able to correctly identify what hail damage looks like. When you have hail damage, you will see some of the tiny granules of a roof missing and over time the roof damage will get progressively worse, likely shortening the lifespan of your roof. Ultimately, if not corrected, your roof will end up leaking.
