Amarillo is a wind heavy area of Texas. Your home can be damaged by wind, especially your roof. Damages caused by wind can include blown over marquee signs, uprooted tree trunks, blown over brick walls and more.
The risk of Wind Damage to public and private property is huge and can’t be neglected in Amarillo, Texas. Accent Roofing has seen a lot of shingle roofs get ripped apart by the wind and but you don’t need an accident like that to make an insurance claim. Sometimes the wind damage isn’t easily visible and can go unnoticed. Often a single composite shingle can be bent back enough to crack the asphalt layer, which can cause leaks when snow settles on the roof.
You can detect damage to your roof by checking for certain things:
- Split Seams
- Torn Shingles
- Missing Shingles
- Missing Sections
- Leaks after Rain
- Torn Siding or Gutters
