Recent Windstorms

March 2, 2009 | Filed under: Miscellanous Articles,Uncategorized

Recent windstorms in many areas of the country have really taken a toll on traditional roofing shingles. In particular, it has been our observation that homes built in the last 15 or so years are unusually susceptible to roof damages from strong winds. We are not sure whether this is related to the quality of the roofing materials themselves, the overall home construction, poor ventilation, or perhaps a combination of things but we’re seeing it in any area of the country that has occasional windstorms of 50+ mph winds. It also may be related to the fact that many of these newer home developments have been in fairly open expanses of land.

The end result is that we have even heard from many homeowners who are now faced with roofing their homes for a third time in 10 – 15 years. One comment we frequently hear is “We don’t care how much it costs, we’re going to go with metal this time and stop having all of these problems and aggravation.”
