Wind and Tornado Damage
Preventing serious roofing damage starts in choosing the right system for your environment. Colorado can experience strong winds in places along the Front Range like Fort Collins and Colorado Springs, as well as intense northern plain storms in areas like Greeley. Roofing systems are designed to resist regular winds, but after the big storm hits do you know what you should be looking for?
Keeping safety in mind you can spot serious damage quickly and should call us immediately to prevent any future damage.
These are some things you should be looking for after a windstorm:
- Examine your roof for any missing shingles.
Check for any cracked or curled shingles.
- Be aware of any area of shingles that may be missing a significant amount of granules from their surface.
- Take a look for any nails that may have been pulled up. This will be obvious if the shingles look loose or if you can see the tops of any nails.
- Check roofing intersections to make sure water is not able to leak into the house.
Colorado storms usually come with wind and can produce incredibly chaotic systems, which can cause serious damage to your roof. After a storm hits, be sure to assess your roof’s condition immediately.
Areas as far north as Cheyenne are prone to even more extreme conditions such as tornados. In the unfortunate circumstance that your community is hit with a tornado, Force 5 Roofing is there to help get you back on your feet and secure the roof over your head.
CAREFUL, it’s also not safe to get up on the roof yourself to check for wind damage, especially if it’s still windy. If you need an expert to come and inspect your roof for wind damage, call Force 5 Roofing and we’ll inspect your roof.
Force 5 Roofing is there for backup when disaster strikes.
