Did You Know That High Winds Can Cause Damage to Your Roof?

High winds can do damage to trees, mobile homes and commercial buildings. A tree can fall at speeds of 45 MPH or more. Trees can even uproot at winds over 58 MPH. So is it any wonder that high winds can damage your home, too?

Roofs are easy targets for high winds because they do not hit roofs in the same place every time. High winds can hit the edge of roofs, middle or even the tip of the peaks on roofs. When high winds get under loose shingles, they will often not only take out that one shingle, but create a chain reaction where an entire line of shingles can be lost.
