The Problem with Wind Damage
It’s 3 AM, and you’re roused from your sleep by the wind howling outside your window. You peek through the blinds as lightning exposes trees swaying violently in the night. The next morning, you wake up to the microwave and oven clock flashing the wrong time. “Glad the power’s back on,” you think to yourself. Coffee in hand, you step on the back porch to assess the damage. A shingle missing around the edge and a few more are splayed about the yard. Is it worth fixing, or should you just sweep it under the rug? Wind damage roof repairs in North Billerica, MA are no joke.
We are here to tell you that any wind damage roof repairs should be done as soon as possible. When wind hits a roof, it often does around the edges. Over time, or with really strong winds, these edges can curl up or the shingle can come off the roofing deck altogether. In order for a roof to be effective against the elements, all the shingles must be sealed to each other to form a watertight roof deck. Missing shingles are an obvious sign of damage, but sometimes, the damage is more subtle. Failure to attend to a wind-damaged roof not only detracts from the look of the house but can result in costly and more extensive repairs down the line, including leaks and water stains on the ceilings.
Help is on the Way
But on the bright side, if you need wind damage roof repair, you may be able to get some financial assistance. Shingle manufacturers all publish wind warranties on their shingles, so if your shingle is damaged at wind speeds below the manufacturer’s wind warranty, you can reach out to the manufacturer and file a claim. If the damage occurs at speeds above the wind warranty, your home insurance company may be able to help.
