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.

Caution: Ice Dams

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that can build up and form at the edge of your roof. When snow builds up on your roof, the snow underneath will start to melt from the heat your house is creating. This meltwater will then run down to the eaves, and because eaves tend to be the coldest point on the roof, it freezes. Once this happens, meltwater will continue to run down the roof, and the ice will continue to grow due to the initial ice that froze in the eave of the roof. As the meltwater continues to drip with nowhere to go, a water backup will occur.

Standing water and your roof are never a happy mix. If you see this happening contact us right away for a free inspection.
