Wind damage occurs in a number of ways and one of the common misconceptions is that it only occurs to residential roofing. This isn’t actually the case as wind damage can also be inflicted on your commercial roofing. Once that happens, you’ll have to search for commercial roofing contractors to get it fixed. Depending on its extent, the damage could be so major they can set you back by thousands or minor ones that can easily be fixed. However, there are some people who still wonder how exactly wind damage can happen.
In this post, Carney Roofing discusses the various ways wind damage can occur.
Most of the time, the wind damage to your commercial roofing system won’t be because some parts of the roof were torn off by the wind, but rather due to flying debris. This debris can include tree limbs, parts of adjacent roofs and basically everything that can be carried aloft by strong winds. Depending on how it lands, it can either dent your roof or even go as far as to puncture it so be sure to inspect your roof for damage after a bout of strong winds.
Quality and Installation
Of course, the quality of the roof and its installation can also play a factor in wind damage. Commercial roofs of poor quality and installation can easily be damaged by strong winds compared to ones with quality materials and installation. Should you see any signs of poor quality or installation on your commercial roofing, hire a full service roofing company like Carney Roofing to correct before any damage occurs.
Depending on your commercial roof’s age, it might be more prone to wind damage than usual. If your commercial roof has a bit of mileage on it, it’s best to get it replaced as soon as possible.
When Does Wind Damage Occur?
Wind damage only occurs during significant weather events such as strong hurricanes. However, the extent of the damage also depends on what the weather event is. For instance, most roofs can still be solidly attached to buildings while sustaining cuts and damages from flying debris. Tornadoes, on the other hand, are a different story. Should a tornado pass by your area, then there’s a high chance that your commercial roofing system can be torn from the building itself or at least, cause great damage to your roofing system.
