Wind damage can be obvious and clear, but it can also be subtle and difficult to spot with the naked eye. Here are some of the signs you can look for to determine whether you may need a wind damage repair:
If you notice any of the above signs of wind damage, it’s important to call the professionals at Anchor Roofing immediately. Leaving roof damage unaddressed is never a good idea, because a damaged roof is a vulnerable roof. When you contact our team, we’ll get an inspection scheduled immediately to start the process of repairing your roof and restoring your home following a storm.
While there’s no way to shield your roof from high winds entirely, there are a few steps you can take to minimize the risk of wind damage to your home and roof. The easiest thing to do is to remove potential projectiles to avoid damage from debris kicked up by extreme gusts. Trim tree branches that overhang your home to avoid major damage. When high winds are forecast for your area, clean up all items such as outdoor furniture, lawn ornaments, toys, gardening equipment, etc.
Then, when the time comes to replace your roof, choose wind-resistant shingles to reduce the likelihood of a wind damage repair.
Wind-resistant materials are essential here in Omaha, where wind storms frequently damage roofs. As local roofing experts, our team at Anchor Roofing can install a variety of wind-resistant roofing materials that will help to prevent a future wind damage repair.
Simply choosing 3-tab shingles for your home’s roof is often enough to protect against the wind storms we face in our area. Our most highly recommended wind-resistant shingles are Owens Corning Duration shingles or CertainTeed Landmark. Both of these products are available at reasonable prices and protect against winds up to 130 mph!
