the Surrounding Parishes
Roofing materials are subject to damage from strong winds as well as flying debris. They are not designed to withstand winds of hurricane and tornado intensity. Winds of moderate intensity, with gusts that may reach 50 to 75 miles per hour can also damage roofs.
The cause of most damage is usually the partial vacuum created by wind blowing over the edge of the roof. The high pressure area inside the building loosens fasteners, breaks the adhesion, and makes the roof susceptible to damage.
You can counteract the effects of wind-uplift forces by adequately fastening and fortifying your roof.
Hail can cause soft spots or "bruising" on asphalt shingles and loosen hard granules that make up the surface of the shingle. This leaves your home vulnerable to future damage like water intrusion.
Hail and strong winds can decrease the life span of the roof system and damage your home’s siding and gutter systems. Get in touch with our BBB accredited company for hail damage repairs.
