“Damaging winds” or “straight line winds” are classified as exceeding 50 to 60 miles per hour but 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.
