All About Wind Damage Inspection

Strong winds are a leading cause of roofing issues. Wind damage inspection starts at the ground-level. To do this, roofers need to look for wind-caused collateral damage, including damage to the home's elevation. It's basically everything visible when you stand back and inspect the side of the home. Collateral damage also includes furniture in the yard.

All About Wind Damage Inspection

Empire Contractors LLC can do a thorough wind damage inspection of your roof.

Elevation Damage

Roofing materials you find on the ground most likely came from up top of the home you’re inspecting.

Roofers inspect the pieces to spot deficiencies before going onto the roof. They may find shingles pulled over the head of a nail. They can also see shingles that pulled through their staples. Close scrutiny will show the wrong installation of staples. The crowns should have been parallel to the long side of the shingle. Both cases can reveal that the shingles were not well bonded.

Damage to Siding and Trim

Siding can suffer both direct and indirect damage. It’s important to pay attention to the roof edges near the corners. Loose ones may be more visible from the ground than from on top of the roof. Conditions visible from ground-level can help determine from where the wind has blown. This will help locate both wind and hail damage. Turn to Empire Contractors LLC for repair and replacement of wind damaged siding.


Wind damaged gutters will show decay, rust, leaky seams and detachment to structure. Gutters bent or sagging, missing sections and debris show wind damage. Clogged gutters can freeze solid and the excessive weight can loosen gutter fasteners.

If you have roof damage caused by wind or flying debris, get it fixed immediately. The longer you wait, the more serious the damage will get. Roof replacement and repair cost a lot less without dealing with leaks and water damage. Empire Contractors LLC can deal with your wind damaged roofing, siding and gutters.
