Wind damage is a common problem on roofs, and it is more common in areas that are prone to extreme weather. After a storm, it is still a good idea to have your roof checked even if it appears fine because small issues can quickly escalate when not addressed. 

Debunking Common Myths About Wind Damage On Roofs

Today, we bust some of the most popular myths and misconceptions about wind damage on roofs. 

You Will Immediately Know if You Have a Wind-Damaged Roof

Signs of wind damage are not always obvious, making roof inspections essential following a weather event. Take a look at your shingles that are located on the first row from the edge. Look for early signs of wind damage, such as wrinkling due to wind pressure. If you have noticed that your shingles are wrinkling, get in touch with a local professional immediately. 

Wind Damage Is the Culprit Behind Shingle Adhesion

While high winds can cause poor shingle adhesion, it is not the only reason the problem occurs. Another common cause of this issue is improper installation. To make the most of your investment, make sure to work with a reliable provider of roof replacement services. Moreover, sudden and constant changes in temperatures can cause shingles to expand and contract, leading to poor adhesion. 

Roofing Products Rated for Strong Winds Will Always Withstand Weaker Winds

Roofing materials are tested for wind resistance during manufacturing. It would be worth investing in products with high wind resistance ratings, but does not ensure your shingles will always remain intact to anything weather than what it claims to withstand. Other factors, such as installation, slope and existing roofing problems, can contribute to wind or storm damage.
