Roof Repair | Tampa | Heavy winds can rip or tear away shingles, leaving the roof deck exposed to the elements. In general, you should always check the roof of your home after any severe thunderstorm because you never know if the winds caused damage to your home. Wind moving over your roof does not happen in a uniform fashion—in fact, the corners and the perimeter of the roof will be the most endangered areas.
According to the National Roofing Contractors Association, roofing damage will almost always start near the edges and move inwards. If you have anywhere where the shingles have a little looseness, they could prove more susceptible to roofing damage. After a corner has been exposed, water can infiltrate the home and cause damage to the insulation. In other cases, it can lead to problems that cause serious health risks, such as black mold.
To check for roof damage, look for missing shingles or shingles that appear cracked and curling. Also, check for damage near the chimney because this is another common area that becomes vulnerable to roofing damage.
