Many people think that damage to their roof can only occur when hail is present during a storm. While this is a common misconception, it isn’t true! High winds can cause shingles to lift and curl by damaging the seal that holds them together. This leaves your roof vulnerable to the elements such as wind driven rain causing interior damage and damage to your roof deck over time. This is typically when the worst damage to your roof is done, but thankfully your trusted Denver roofing contractors at Planet Roofing can help!
It’s important to note that anywhere roofing materials are slightly loose, wind can get below and push up, giving the wind more to grab onto over time, creating a peeling effect. The damage from the wind can start small but will continue to grow over time, exposing your roof to more and more vulnerabilities. If let go long enough the damage could compromise the integrity of your roofing system, ultimately requiring you to replace the roof.
Do you know how to tell if you have wind damage and need to contact a Planet Roofing expert?
- Perform a visual inspection. Walk the yard and look for downed tree limbs, noticeably missing or loose shingles, large debris on your roof or in the yard that may have come in contact with your roof, missing or damaged roof vents.
- Check skylights for damage or leaks. Is there any water coming into the interior of your home?
- Get in your attic. Do you notice any daylight or damp areas to your roofs decking?
