Storms in midwest Ohio often bring along with them high winds, and while a homeowner’s main concern during these storms may be to make sure that items around the house are secured and don’t blow away, there’s another part of your house that needs a double-check for wind damage, your ROOF!
High Winds and the Effect On Your Home
Severe winds can bring damage of all sorts to your roof. As winds reach between 40-60mph, tree branches and other debris are likely to leave their mark on your roof by puncturing, scratching and removing loosened shingles.
Once winds cross above that 60 mph mark, they are strong enough to UPROOT trees and rip off shingles EVEN if they were secure before the storm. The severity of roof damage will only increase in correlation to wind speed, you’ll need to have a call to action after experiencing
severe wind storms.
Here are some action items to run through if you are unsure where to start!
- Spot Check: Look for noticeable signs of damage on your roof
- Debris: Clean up the debris that has been left on your roof and yard
- Leaks: Search for leaks, or signs of ceiling/wall discoloration
- Insurance: Submit an insurance claim & get that damage repaired
- Contact the experts.
