How Can You Check for Wind Damage After a Storm?
Any roof should handle normal gusts of wind, however strong winds and storms can pose a potential risk if your roof is not installed properly. Most modern roofs can withstand winds of about 90 miles per hour, however, there are variables that affect that rating. If a roof is aging or was installed incorrectly, there is more concern about your roof potentially experiencing wind damage. Typically, during windstorms, shingles around the edges of the roof will lift, then settle back down after the wind gusts end. To spot damage, check for loose nails from where the shingles were loosened and raised during the storm. If any shingles are missing completely, that is another big issue. Give a roofing contractor like PJ Fitzpatrick a call so a professional can come and check on potential roof damages for you.
Benefits of A Strong and Sturdy Roof
There are many benefits that one may overlook when in need of a new roof. A new sturdy roof does much more than just enhance the overall protection from the elements. A properly installed roof helps to keep consistent temperatures inside of the house, shelter the things you care about, and also improve the overall curb appeal of the home. A sturdy new roof installed by PJ Fitzpatrick will give you peace of mind during strong storms knowing that your shingles will resist wind damage and provide lasting protection and a great return on investment.
Improving the Overall Curb Appeal of The House
Besides durability during strong winds, a new roof will really help to boost the curb appeal of your home. A roof makes up a large percentage of your home’s curb appeal, and no one wants to look at old, dull shingles. Besides being dangerous and uneconomical, it is unappealing to look at any shingles that are curled, cracked, damaged, or missing. If you are in the process of selling your home, a brand-new roof makes your home much easier to sell.
