3 Ways Wind Can Damage Your Roof



It can be difficult to prepare your roof for natural elements such as wind, rain, and snow if you’re unaware of the damage that can occur from extreme weather. Many people don’t think of how the wind can really affect and cause damage to the roof of their home, resulting in costly repairs.


If your roof is exposed to high winds, some of the shingles on your roof could be ripped or blown away. This will leave your roof exposed and vulnerable. Water can slip underneath the shingles and create mold, leaks, and damage to your interior insulation. If your shingles are lifted or torn off, it’s important to have them replaced and repaired as soon as possible.


Wind can also cause tree parts to fall onto the roof of your home. Depending on the size of tree limbs, your roof could sustain substantial damage, potentially including holes. This leaves your home accessible to animals entering and causing damage to more than just the roof. To preempt damage, always keep an eye on trees that may be too close to your home and remove all limbs and branches that pose a potential threat to your roof. Want to add a caption to this image?

Be on the lookout for flying debris harming your roof, especially during a storm. When high winds pick things up from the ground and relocate them, you don’t want it to be on the roof of your home. Debris can also cause damage to your shingles and puncture your roof, as well as harm other areas of your home, like your windows and siding.
