A well-built roof can last for many years. The type of material, the weather in the area you live, and the quality of installation are all factors that can change the length of time your roof needs before repairs or replacement. For instance, if you are in an area with a lot of storms or many days each year of strong winds, you will need to watch your roof not just for tree limbs falling, but for wind damage to your roof as well. At Carolinas Best Roofing, we have come up with a few signs for you to watch out for to determine if a wind damage roof repair is in your future.
- Loose shingles. Shingled roofs account for a majority of roofing materials, especially on residential properties. Shingles are especially susceptible to forceful winds at their weakest point, which is right above your gutters. Once these shingles become loose, the next windstorm can come along and push up lines of shingles until you have entire sections missing.
- Cracks, blisters, or signs of wear and tear. Especially on roofs that are flat, such as commercial properties, you’ll need to check for these issues. All of these can be caused by a combination of wind, rain, and sun damage that are compounded with one another.
- Yellowing moisture marks on the interior. Sometimes your warning signs will first manifest themselves on the interior of your property instead of outside. On occasion, wind can pull up shingles, but not remove the shingles. This means water can seep in and cause leaks, even if your roof appears to be fine.
