When there are chimneys, we inspect for damaged bricks, leaning, loose or missing flashing, or cracked joints; also, we check loosen or lost shingles, holes or destroyed roof. Technicians usually check the glue of shingles; if shingles move, this is a clear indicator that they are not well sealed and water may get into your house through the roof.
Depending on the damage, the taken operation is particular: when treated tiles are found, we replace or glue them. Corners of roof are more susceptible of being holed; if holes or destroyed roof are the problem, measures like restoration or tarp installation are lead.

Talking about Winds and Reasons they are so damaging
Winds are the result of gases flow on a large scale. On Earth surface, wind is the bulk movement of air. Velocity, density and energy are particular characteristics of winds which make them rough or inoffensive. Winds considered damaging are the so called “straight-line” which are usually derived from outflow caused by strong thunderstorms downdraft. The speed of them may exceed 50-60 mph but are below 100mph and their damage may be extended for hundreds of miles.
The real reason of the damages from the wind comes from the mobilization of material. Winds can mobilize debris, shards of glass, tree branches and more; those materials are expelled through the air and then fall onto or across your roof, windows or doors, destroying home sets. If you live in a risky area or you hear a thunderstorm is coming, it is important to be always warned taking some prevention actions to guard your home from the wind violence. Some advices for you are:
- If you are planning to move or buy a new house in a considered windy zone, avoid houses with large areas made of glass, glass doors or big glass windows. If you already live in a windy zone and your home is kind of “glassy”, take precautions to secure windows and other areas of glass.
- The set of permanent storm shutters to protect windows will be always a good option. Try aluminum or steel and manually operated shutters; when selecting motor-driven, electrical outages won´t let them work. Remember to choose models adequate to the wind and impact standards for your area.
- When not having enough pockets for getting permanent shutters, a cheaper option will be to take temporary plywood covers. They can be set too quickly and they also suitable for sliding glass doors and French doors.
- Strengthen the doors or gates in your garage. A garage door not very strong is an entrance to danger in windy situations. Objects might hit it, getting into the location and damaging other areas or cars. Always prefer professional help if you think you need extra secure the doors.
- Secure or tie objects outside your property that you think can be easily moved by winds. Secure garden furniture or pool accessories, umbrellas, trash containers or grills. Flying furniture can break windows, doors and roof.
- Remove trees close to your property that might eventually fall over your house. If they seem weakened or dead trunks, they will tend to break. Be careful and cut scratched parts of the trees: if there are branches over your roof that can damage it, also cut them. To preserve trees is important, but sometimes trees are not beneficial but dangerous.
Continuous supervision of your property is mandatory. You have to be sure that your home is in good conditions and that it can resist wind outburst. Check your roof conditions. Check for loose or missing shingles; if you see any loose, secure and fix it. If you need roof again, invest in weather-resistant shingles. Ask for professional help.
