During the forceful winds and flying debris during hurricanes and harsh wind storms, the shingles on your roof may have been forced upward and then fall back into their position, making it look like no damage has occurred.
Learn how this can compromise your entire roofing system and how Reliant finds hidden storm damage:
Will my shingles reseal to the roof after being lifted from a storm?
It is highly unlikely singles will reseal to themselves or the roof after being lifted from a storm. If single uplift has occurred, replacement to the entire roof or that area would be required to restore the roof to a pre-event condition.
What are the signs of shingle roof storm damage?
Signs of shingle roof storm damage include lifted shingles, granule loss, uneven lines, nail pull-through holes, leaks and crack lines. We suggest having a professional roofer inspect the shingles and provide a scope of work. If the damage is found it is advised to file a claim with your insurance company and report the damage.
What is the best shingle to withstand hurricane winds?
The best shingle to withstand hurricane winds is the Timberline HDZ with LayerLock Technology (providing the “Strikezone” Nailing Area – the industry’s largest nail zone) partnered with GAF’s Brand New WindProven™ Wind Warranty- the industry’s first wind warranty with no maximum wind speed limitation.*
