Wind Damage

Let our trained specialists
inspect your property absolutely FREE!
Wind DamageDue to high storm activity in the Central Ohio Area, strong winds may have damaged your home. Roofing shingles can be damaged without any visual signs from the ground. This damage includes creasing, tearing, and folding of the individual shingles.  Shingles do not need to be missing for significant damage to have occurred. You may even qualify for a new roof at your insurance company's expense.
Wind and windblown debris may have bent, removed or otherwise damaged the aluminum or vinyl siding on your home.  Your insurance company is responsible for necessary repair of that damage.  In most cases your insurance company will cover the entire cost of repairs.
Let our knowledgeable staff work with your insurance adjusters to be sure that the wind damage is properly determined and corrected. We offer:

  • Free Inspections
  • Courteous Staff
  • Quality Craftsmanship

And we promise timely Job Completion
You may not be able to sell your home or refinance your home if it has a damaged roof, siding, shingles, or gutters. Please call us today for a FREE INSPECTION.

As wind moves over a roof, its effect is not uniform. Certain regions will be subject to higher pressures, such as along the perimeter.

"Wind blowing over a roof isn't a problem until it starts to move materials," says Kirby. "Materials" may include the membrane itself or the shingles. Anywhere material is even a little bit loose, the suction of the wind is going to raise it up and then the wind can get below it and push it up. Once the underside of the roofing is exposed, rain can get in, but it also gives the wind more to grab on to.

The peeling effect is when the edge of the roofing can start to lift up and in subsequent wind events gets pushed up and over a little more each time until a whole corner of the insulation is exposed.
