Wind Damage and Shingles: Navigating Replacement Post-Weather Events

Has your roof been caught in a big storm? Do you fear the wind has damaged your roof and needs repair? Don’t worry; with RoofMaxx at your side, we will walk you through the essential next steps in navigating repair or shingle replacement post-weather events. 

The Perils of Wind-Damaged Shingles

Wind damage to your roof is not something to take lightly. If you have recently experienced a considerable storm, checking your roof for issues is the first step to preventing major problems from occurring in the future. 

First, let’s quickly talk about spotting signs of wind damage. If you see missing shingles, granule loss from shingles, exposed or damaged flashing, loose or dented roof vents or chimneys, or debris or tree branches on your roof, there is a high chance your roof suffers from wind damage. 

If wind damage is not promptly repaired, the consequences can be extreme. There is a high chance for further roof damage, water leaks, and so much more that can end up costing thousands, if not tens of thousands, to repair later on. What can you do to prevent this? Let us introduce ourselves.

This focus on shingle rejuvenation rather than shingle replacement underscores our commitment to innovation, sustainability, and customer satisfaction, distinguishing our services in the dynamic roofing industry.

How the RoofMaxx Treatment Revitalizes Your Roof

The secret behind the success of the RoofMaxx treatments lies in our revolutionary approach to roof restoration. Designed to tackle aging shingles head-on, we utilize our scientifically formulated, soy-based treatment that penetrates deep into the asphalt shingles.

Similar to the soy technology used in Good Year tires, our treatment mimics the natural oils lost from asphalt shingles over time. Over time, shingles age, dry out, lose their protective granules, and become more susceptible to cracking and breaking, especially under the stress of high winds. The RoofMaxx formula is engineered to reverse this aging process. By reintroducing essential oils into the shingles, RoofMaxx gives them back that indispensable flexibility for resist wind damage. 

Overall, the RoofMaxx treatment returns flexibility to weathered shingles, extends a roof lifespan by five years per treatment, and provides homeowners with a cost-effective alternative to whole roof shingle replacement while reducing unnecessary waste! 

Assessing Wind Damage for Treatment Solutions

Of course, our treatment isn’t going to be the right choice for every single roof. That’s when a critical assessment is needed to determine what would be the right solution for you. 

The right time to get the RoofMaxx treatment is when your roof is starting to show signs of aging and basic wear and tear. If you see shingle dryness, loss of granules, and some minor cracking or brittleness, but the roof structure itself is still in good shape, we are a smart choice. We can easily repair minor problems and then apply the RoofMaxx treatment to get your roof back in fighting shape.

However, if your roof structure is starting to fail, such as leaks, sagging, or major shingle loss, then it may be time for a total roof and shingle replacement. In this case, it is best to fix the underlying problem and start renewed. 

If you aren’t sure what your roof’s current status is, don’t fret; we can help. Give us a call for a free roof inspection and estimate to determine what level of care your roof needs to provide you and your home with the best protection from the elements. 

Maintenance Tips to Prevent Wind Damage

While no one can control the wind, you can take steps to minimize wind damage to your roof. If you know a big storm is approaching, we suggest taking the following steps. 

  1. Deal with trees and shrubs: Cut down or trim trees or shrubs that are rotting or have damaged limbs. This will prevent them from falling and damaging your roof during a storm. 
  2. Secure movable items: Small items and furniture can become a flying hazard during a rough storm. We suggest bringing in children’s toys, décor, plants, yard equipment, or anything else that could be lifted in the wind. If you have a rooftop deck with furniture, either bring the furniture down or secure it with weights and rope to prevent it from sliding onto the roof. 
  3. Clean your gutters: Full gutters during a storm can cause various problems, including breaking off and taking part of your roof with them. We suggest clearing out your gutters and ensuring they are ready for wind and water in mass. 
  4. Listen to weather warnings: Weather warnings can often seem blown out of proportion, but when they hit hard, homeowners wish they had listened. When it comes to weather warnings, it is always better to be safe than sorry!
