What is Roof Wind Damage?
Roof wind damage is caused by high winds, and just as with storms, strong gusts of wind can cause a variety of injuries to the roofing system, even without the presence of hail. Strong winds can rip materials off of the roof, lift and remove the shingles, and even cause debris or trees to drag across your roof, causing extensive damage.
In Denver, CO and throughout the Northern Colorado Front Range, high winds are a regular occurrence and if you suspect your roof has been damaged during a windstorm, knowing what to look for can help you determine if your roof needs repairs and how quickly the problem should be addressed.
Signs of Roof Wind Damage
New roof installations and older roofing systems are more vulnerable to high wind damages, and while some signs of roof injuries are more obvious, such as fallen trees or missing shingles, not all damages can be identified without a thorough inspection of the roof. Here is what to look for after any high wind or storm occurrence:
- Debris on the roof
- Fallen trees
- Leaking roof
- Missing or curling shingles
- Asphalt granules on the ground
- Torn or cracked shingles
- Raised shingles
- Clogged or damaged vents
- Damaged or backed up gutters
