Roofing Wind Damage
High winds are not a rare occurrence here in the Fort Worth area.
Storms of all kinds, from thunderstorms to tornadoes, are a fact of life where we live. High winds in excess of 50 mph can potentially cause damage to your roofing system. High velocity winds can lift and even blow away whole squares of shingles!
Wind damage is also not always easy to detect from the ground (unless the shingles have been moved around or are missing entirely) but is a critical damage type. Our roofing experts are trained to have an eye for detail and can spot this kind of damage easily.
Having the professionals at Fort Worth Roofing Expert repair wind damage to your roof is your best bet for taking care of this roofing problem right.
Roof Wind Damage
Damage to your roof, no matter the source, compromises the protection it affords to your property.
When high winds lift up shingles they allow the elements underneath your roof. Obviously moisture such as rain and snow as it melts is something you don’t want soaking into the underlayment of your roof. A saturated underlayment can lead to mold growth which can not only destroy your decking but the attic space can become contaminated as well.
Dust and other debris can also accumulate beneath your roofing layers, depositing allergens that can find their way into your home and possibly into the air your family breathes.
As these contaminants buildup under your shingles, your shingles can be lifted up in an area. A roof pocket is an ideal nesting place for birds, squirrels and other animals that can cause massive damage to your home. Mice in particular (who believe it or not we have found in roofing areas) that gain entry by chewing their way into a weakened roof will often enter your attic space and breed. Mice eat insulation like kids eat cotton candy!
Repair Roof Wind Damage
Depending on the level of wind damage your roof has suffered, repairing this problem is typically not very difficult.
We locate the shingles or area that has been lifted and simply nail them back down, or in cases where the shingles have been blown away replace what has been lost.
If a significant portion of your roof has been damaged, this kind of situation may call for an insurance claim to execute a major repair or possibly a reroof. One of our roofing experts, after conducting an inspection of your roof and the damage, can give you advice on the best course of action to take regarding whether or not an insurance claim is necessary.
Additionally, we can help you through the entire damage claims process to make sure that you are given a fair claim for your roof damage caused by wind (or other damage).
