We had quite a few wind storms here in Oklahoma the last few weeks. You may have already seen our crews hard at work assessing damage and replacing roofs. The team at Millennium have been out non-stop, helping customers do the repairs to their homes. With reported that wind gusts reached as high as 50 to 60 mph out of the southwest. That’s high enough to do damage to any modern shingle roof.
Asphalt shingle roofs are popular for residential roofing because they are affordable, durable, and easy to install. Shingle roofs are susceptible to wind damage, though. While moderate wind damage to a roof is pretty easy to repair, it can compromise your roof’s ability to protect your home from the elements if you don’t take action immediately. Let’s investigate how you can tell if your shingle roof has wind damage.

The amount of wind that can cause damage to a shingle roof depends on several factors, such as the age of the roof, the quality of the installation, and the quality of the shingles. Generally, winds with speeds of 50-60 mph can cause damage to a shingle roof, but even lower speeds can cause damage if sustained for an extended period.
Damage to your shingle roof doesn’t only occur from sustained winds. A single strong gust of wind can cause sudden and severe damage to a roof. When checking if your shingle roof has wind damage, wind gusts are also a factor to consider.
The roof protects your home or business safe and secure from harmful elements. When it is damaged by extreme weather, such as a hailstorm, what may start as small issues can easily turn into big trouble. Here are some signs to look for if you suspect hair storm damage.
An obvious sign of hail damage is that the flashing may show some dents in the construction material after a hailstorm.
Another sign is that the gutters may show proof of mineral granules detached from the asphalt shingles or rolled roofing. This could be due to a hail storm. The direction of the hailstorm indicates where the most damage would be more apparent. The asphalt material also shows signs of tear-dropped shaped, round-shaped, or pitted spots where the hail impacted the surface. If not replaced, damaged or bruised shingles become water-absorbent funneling water to the underlayment and decking beneath the roofing material.
Hail also causes crack within the asphalt shingles, and water leakage is imminent as time passes.
