How To Assess Wind Damage

Ah, spring in Oklahoma. Just like the Oscar Hammerstein lyrics, “where the wind comes sweeping down the plain.” While wind damage may not be first on your mind when Oklahoma’s notorious spring storms hit, it can leave your roof vulnerable. Just as you would check your roof after a hail storm or if debris were to fall on your home, inspecting your roof after strong winds are as important. Roofing Tulsa for more than a decade, Roofscapes Exteriors has helped a number of Oklahomans with wind damaged roofs. Here’s what to look for:

Missing Shingles

High winds can tear off shingles which can expose your roof deck and leave you susceptible to the elements.

Curled Shingles

Shingles that are curled on the end have been pulled up from their surrounding shingles and can allow for moisture to permeate your home.

Torn shingles

Bad weather can tear away at your shingles. Torn shingles can expose your roof’s underlayment and leave your home unprotected.

Dents/Missing Granules

Most commonly found with hail or fallen branches, dents and missing granules can also be seen after a particularly strong wind storm in Tulsa. Roofing granules found on asphalt shingles protect against rain and sun damage so it’s important that you maintain the integrity of your shingles.

Roofing Tulsa is our specialty. Roofscapes Exteriors is your roofing partner when Oklahoma’s spring winds and storms hit.

Preparing Your Roof For Spring Storms

Spring storms can wreak havoc on Oklahoma properties. While there’s no way to avoid this annual onslaught of severe weather, there are several easy and affordable things that homeowners can do to help protect their homes damage.

Keep Your Trees and Large Bushes Trimmed.

Getting rid of weak and broken branches can help prevent those limbs from ending up on your roof or through your window during a severe spring storm.

Check Your Roof’s Flashing.

Flashing, the metal pieces that protect the seams of your roof around vents and chimneys, is more likely to become unattached than your roofing materials. Checking these areas and reattaching or replacing any damaged or loose flashing you find will help keep them secure in high winds.

Wait To Put Out Patio Furnishings.

Chairs and other lawn accessories can get blown into your house during thunder storms. Waiting until later in the spring to decorate your deck and porch may help save both your furnishings and home..

Secure your gutters.

It’s important to make sure that your drainage system — your gutters and downspouts — are securely attached to your home and clear of any debris like branches and leafs. A clogged gutter can cause water to enter your home during a storm and a loose drainpipe can bang against your siding causing damage. You can easily check these yourself and clear them with little issue.

While there’s no way to keep spring storms out of Oklahoma, you can help your home to weather the storms by utilizing these easy tips. If your roof does sustain damage during one of Oklahoma’s infamous spring storms, contact Roofscapes Exteriors, LLC immediately for repair help.
