Wind Damage—What It Is and How to Spot It
Tornadoes, thunderstorms and windstorms can cause damage to a roof. People often assume that only major weather events cause roof damage, but the truth is that even just strong gusts of wind can cause serious damage.
While sometimes the damage is obvious, it’s not always easy to spot. Wind doesn’t damage the roof evenly. The corners and edges of your roof are more likely to show damage than the center. Sometimes, the damage may look like it only occurred in one spot but be careful: Areas of the roof that look solid and stable can actually be hazardous.
Areas of a roof that have only minor wind damage may get worse over time. That’s because roof damage can allow water underneath the roof, causing leaking and water damage. The water damage, in turn, pushes shingles up, leaving the roof more susceptible to more wind damage in the next big storm.
Wind Damage Roof Insurance Claims—What to Do
All businesses and homeowners should document the state of their property before anything happens —regardless of whether they are located in an area that’s prone to strong winds. Use your smartphone to take photos and videos of the property. These will come in handy in the event of wind damage.
If you did not take photos and videos before the wind damage occurred, don’t worried. You can still make a case to your insurance company. If you need help, we can talk to you about the process of filing a claim. Just call us to get started. Our professional roofing contractors have the proper experience and tools necessary to inspect your roof for wind damage safely.
Why It’s Critical to Work With a Certified Roofing Contractor
Be aware of fly-by-night roofers who offer to fix your roof after a major storm. These roofing companies often target people who have experienced major storm damage, and they can’t be trusted to do honest business.
Choosing a certified roofing contractor means that someone you can trust is repairing your roof. It means that your roof will be up to the highest standards, the repairs are guaranteed, and the insurance company will be more likely to pay the bill without hesitation.
