There are many causes that effect roofing systems and one primary cause are high winds. The majority of wind damage to your roofing system is not visible from the ground! This “hidden” damage is less likely to be identified by and insurance adjuster without being accompanied by a thorough inspection from a qualified professional.
Wind damage to roofing shingles or other roofing systems come in a variety of forms. These forms include:
- Blown off shingles
- Torn or curled shingles
- Loose shingles
- Exposed nails
- Leaking roof
- Broken shingle seals
Wind is one of the most important factors manufacturers use when developing and testing new roofing systems. Basic wind speeds in the Continental U.S. can reach up to 85 miles per hour or higher. The American Society For Testing And Materials (ASTM) has set the standard for wind testing roofing products. The roofing system on your home or commercial property should meet the ASTM requirements for your specific region.
