In Northern Colorado, the wind gusts can be strong, which can cause destructive high wind roof damage. Is your roof able to stand up to the weather?
The Effect of High Wind on Your Roof
One of the tricky parts about wind damage is that it doesn’t affect your entire roof the same way. A particular gust may have torn up one section of shingles and left the rest of your roof as good as new. Often, wind damage starts at the edge of your roof where the wind pressure is strongest.
The wind my lift shingles off of your roof, sometimes just separating them from your roof and sometimes ripping them clean off.
That is the kind of damage you want to fix as soon as possible. It leaves the inside and outside of your home vulnerable to all sorts of different damage.
How Can I Tell If It Needs Repair?
