Home Wind Damage Roof Repair in Albany, NY
Here to help you with your wind damaged roof
If you need the wind damage on your roof repaired, you can contact Home Evolution, a leading roofing contractor that serves the Albany, NY region. Generally, roofs may be damaged by winds of moderate intensity, with gusts that may reach 50 to 75 miles per hour. The primary cause of wind damage is from the partial vacuum created by wind blowing over the edge of the roof. Nature tries to neutralize the low-pressure area by bringing in air from a higher pressure area, usually from inside the building. This air pushes up on the bottom side of the roof assembly and, over time, loosens nails and breaks the adhesion, making the roof susceptible to damage from the next moderate or strong wind that may come across.
To counteract the effects of wind-uplift forces, the roofing and insulation should be adequately fastened to the roof deck, and a securely fastened perimeter detail should be provided. Loose nails can cause a lot of trouble and this a very common cause of leaky roofs. Home Evolution offers a wide variety of quality roofing materials that will maximize the lifespan of your roof and prevent wind damage from occurring on your roof. We also employ qualified and experienced roofers that are trained to identify leaks and weak spots on your roof and fix them properly so they do not keep coming back in the long run. Having your roof installed properly using quality materials is key for the longevity of your roofing system.
Knowing What To Do once you have identified wind damage on your roof
During heavy storms, wind gusts at or above 50-60 mph will begin to cause damage to your home. Once the storm has passed, it is important to know what steps to take once you have identified that damage has been done to the roof of your home. Angie’s List offers a great checklist on what steps to take after the storm once you have realized the storm damage on your home. Timing is key when it comes to notifying your insurance agent of the damage done. Once you have done that, it is key to do whatever you can from your end to prevent further damage to the roof. Once the insurance claim process has been started, it is important to find a local roofing contractor who is qualified to do the job. Home Evolution employs experienced roofers to ensure that every aspect of the job is done properly to standards to ensure the homeowners peace of mind. If your roof has been damaged due to a passing storm, hail, or other scenarios, we would be proud to be your first choice as roofing contractor for your next roofing project.
Below is a prime example of what wind can do to the roof of your home. Although this particular home is fairly new, the high winds in the open field cause the shingles not to seal up properly. This cause the shingles to lift up and crease every single time winds came across the property. The end result will always be missing and damaged shingles.
