Strong winds and hail like we had in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas, (Pueblo comes to mind) may leave you wondering what damage might be like on your roof. Even without hail a roof still can sustain enough damage over time from wind and debris, allowing it to become compromised. Left un-repaired, a damaged roof can cause water damage to your house and increased energy costs if your roof system stops operating the way it should. If your roof is damaged, it is important to make necessary repairs as quickly as possible to help avoid additional damage and cost.
Most roof damage starts on the edge. Any location where the roofing material is a little loose is susceptible to damage from the wind. An area where there may be raised shingles from nail popping or other roof damage is especially vulnerable to additional wind damage. Since the roof isn’t impacted uniformly by the wind, some areas will experience higher pressure and damage than others. Wind damage can start fairly small but increase over time with repeated exposure to the elements.
A roofing inspection is the best place to start:
