Heavy Winds And Your Roof
Even when a storm does not create any rain or hail, your roof can still be damaged. Extreme winds can create stress spots that can shorten the life of roofing materials. Even though a roof is designed to withstand substantial wind loads, it can still be destroyed incrementally over time by repeated abuse from heavy winds and the debris transported with it. Having a Madison Roofer replace any removed shingles and repair the primary roof damage promptly is important to stop subsequent water damage and soaring energy costs that will surely follow from a roofing system that is not operating as it should and could.
How Wind Deteriorates Your Roof
The consequence of wind passing over a roof is not consistent. Areas of a roof such as the corners and perimeter are generally more sensitive to higher wind loads, while the middle of the roof is usually lower. The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) says that the majority of wind damage begins on the edges of the roof. Wherever the roofing material is even just a tiny bit insecure, the wind can get beneath it and shift it up, ultimately providing the wind more to grasp onto next time which begins a vicious cycle until the shingle is blown off.
Once a full corner of decking is exposed, rain can begin to enter and create leaks and water damage. Homeowners can bypass this sort of wind damage by inspecting the edges and corners of their roof to be sure that the materials are safe and sufficient to withstand high winds. If you are unsure, call a local Madison Roof Repair pro to take a look at it for you.
