Free Roof Inspections!!
After a severe storm, the first thing home and business owners need to do is have a thorough and accurate assessment of their properties for wind and storm damage. Storm damage is the most common type of damage sustained by homes and buildings, and the majority of it is caused by strong winds. Unfortunately, many homes are not adequately equipped to withstand severe storms and strong winds. Hurricane force winds, tornados, and lightning are a few examples of severe weather that can damage a building. Damage to a building can range from minor water intrusion caused by wind-driven rain, to severe structural damage that compromises the stability of the structure itself. Our experts at Kingwood Roof Repair are equipped to deal with all aspects of the storm damage.
Our roofing contractor will initially evaluate the structure for any damage that would cause an unsafe condition, such as excessive deflections within beams and bearing walls and columns leaning. The safety of occupants is the primary concern and should be established immediately. The assessment will document any and all structural damage along with other damage, such as water intrusion or damage to roof coverings.
Most shingles carry a wind resistance rating of 60 miles per hour as tested under ASTM 3161 or UL 997, while specialty shingles may be rated to as much as 130 miles per hour. Although, laboratory tests may not predict actual performance in a storm, a higher rated shingle will likely perform better than a lower rated one.
Shingles installed in fall or winter may not seal until the following Spring. If shingles are damaged by winds before sealing or are not exposed to adequate surface temperatures, or if the self-sealant gets dirty, the shingles may never seal. Failure to seal under these circumstances result from the nature of self-sealing shingles and is not a manufacturing defect.
