A common cause of roof damage is excessively high winds. Wind can be damaging in most parts of the country, especially in areas with extreme weather such as tornadoes or hurricanes. The midwest is especially susceptible to the damage from frequent strong storms and occasional tornadoes.
Storms or other weather occurrences with strong wind gusts can effect roofs because it doesn’t always hit the roof evenly. Certain areas will experience much greater force and “peel” the shingle(s) up exposing the underlayment or possibly the decking. In high wind situations, roofs and gutters can get damaged by surrounding trees or other falling debris. Preventing wind damage is almost impossible, but keeping tree branches away from the structure can be a good preventative measure though. Wind damage repairs can usually be done quickly and efficiently following a windy day/period.
