High wind speeds can cause damage to your home. Whether it’s directly to your home or the landscaping, it’s important to be able to identify damage and know how to prevent and fix it.
The roofs of our houses are the most vulnerable to wind damage and is the most common during high winds. Roofs are most likely to be damaged along the edges or in areas where the shingles are already loose. During high winds, we all hope for some minor shingle damage however, in cases of extreme weather, roofs can be completely disconnected from a house.
When strong wind occurs, shingles can be blown off the roof deck. Missing shingles can lead to many issues. Leaks and interior damage of your home are common issues that can happen, if the adhesive seal is worn then water leaks are especially common. Another sign of shingles being damaged is if you can hear or see them flapping in the wind. To work properly shingles must be sealed to the roof.
A high force wind is able to break a window. Window seals can become loose and when a strong wind hits, the vibrations can cause cracking. When a window seal breaks air and water is let into the home. Unsecured windows are the most likely to break and cause glass to shatter and enter your home.
After a big storm, it’s not uncommon to see a couple of trees and tree limbs scattered across yards or streets. Trees can also fall on roofs causing damage to roofs, windows and shingles. Depending on the size of the tree determines the amount of damage caused. A simple breaking of a branch can sometimes do minimal damage during a storm.
