How to Handle Your Commercial Roof After a Windstorm

Do you know how much of a beating your roof takes during a windstorm? While most roofs are built to handle storms and high winds, there is a limit to what they can handle. When winds reach up to 40 MPH, there is a likelihood of severe damage. Roof failure is not uncommon during serious windstorms.

Understanding the Problem of Wind Damage

Storms can cause a variety of different problems with a structure. When the wind blows, it can exert an upward force on the materials of your roof. This force may cause you to lose shingles or sheeting. You may notice bubbling and wrinkling on the roof. Other problems include damage to the fascia or flashing and rot to the underlying wood.

Many commercial roofs have gravel or granules to protect them. Over time, storms can wreak havoc on the protective layer. Wind may slowly remove the protection and decrease your roof’s lifespan.

Solving the Problem of Wind Damage

After a windstorm, you should have your roof inspected as soon as possible. If you ignore your roof, any damage done will only get worse. Small issues are easy to repair and generally do not cost a lot of money. However, when your issues become worse or if your entire roof fails, you’ll have a much higher bill to contend with. The best solution is to have the roof inspected and repaired by an expert as soon as possible.

Windstorms can wreak havoc on your roof. Inspections are the best way to ensure that your roof did not sustain serious damage. To leave a roof damaged can cause future issues or lead to an eventual roof failure.
