However, just because you aren’t aware of them doesn’t mean they aren’t there- and it certainly doesn’t mean that they don’t need to be addressed. Even if the damage caused by the wind doesn’t lead to any serious destruction that you can spot, it could potentially pave the way for the next storm to do exactly that- and that’s what Southline Roofing & Exteriors is here to help prevent from happening.
“Damaging winds” or “straight line winds” are classified as winds that exceed 50 to 60 miles per hour, although they can reach up to one hundred miles per hour. These types of winds are considered to be different from tornado winds- which are caused by downdrafts made during severe thunderstorms. It is in your best interest to have an inspection completed after a strong wind storm or if you notice shingles missing or in your yard. Though you may not be aware of or see visible signs, strong winds can damage your shingles and lead to water intrusion. You may qualify, depending on your coverage, to file a claim through your homeowner’s insurance. Contact us today to have one of our consultants review the damages to your roof and go over how the process works in detail.

WIND DAMAGE FAQ
Q: How do I tell if I have wind damage?
A: The effect wind has on your roof depends on roof type, the age of your roof, roof materials, and the power of the wind. For this reason, it is important to inspect your roof as soon as possible after a big wind storm has passed in your area. To inspect the roof yourself, look for broken, curled, or missing shingles. Shingles can easily be blown off by strong winds.
