What is wind storm damage?
Weather patterns in many parts of the country are becoming more and more extreme and violent, resulting in more instances of wind storm damage to homes and businesses.
During a storm, the strong winds can wreak havoc on a property. From broken windows to a fallen tree through a roof, even flood damage; severe weather events can take their toll on any property.
High winds can tear through a building, finding every improperly secured structure, ripping it up and causing construction defects. Hurricanes, for example, will whip up everything not secured to the ground, battering buildings with wind borne debris.
More often than not, strong storms bring with them heavy rains or hail too. And if your house has been damaged by the wind, the wet weather will likely cause further damage to your property including water damage which can lead to mold growth.
Typical Storm Damage Scenarios
What types of damage can wind cause?
Wind damage can be sustained to almost any part of your property, however the most common places we see wind damage is the roof and windows.
Damage to roof
Your roof provides a first line defense against wind and storm damage – even new built homes can sustain damage during fierce storms.
The thing with wind is that it won’t have been blowing across your roof uniformly, meaning some areas of the roof will be more susceptible to damage than others.
Corners and the edge of your roof are more likely to have suffered damage than the center.
Signs of damage to your roof caused by the wind can include missing shingles, damaged gutters, water in your attic, leaks or flooding, even broken windows.
High winds can cause doors and windows to collapse, they can rip roofing off, and destroy gable end walls. Wind exerts three types of forces on a building structure:
Uplift load – this is when the wind flow pressure causes a lifting effect, like air beneath an airplane’s wings. If wind gets under a roof, it will push upwards, and the wind flowing over the roof will pull upward too.
Shear load – horizontal wind pressure can make a building tilt.
Lateral load – horizontal wind pushing and pulling on a building can slide the structure off its foundations.
How can I protect my home from wind damage?
With more frequent severe weather, you need to take steps to prevent wind damage and protect your home.
Secure outdoor furniture, sheds, even fence posts. High winds can pick up anything, turning it into a missile. Bring in anything that the wind might whip up and turn into a projectile – kids’ toys, flower pots, even your trashcan.
Install a reinforced garage door if you can. Reinforce areas that are susceptible to damage, for example, garage doors. If the wind gets into your garage it can create a high pressure situation which in turn can damage your roof. Reinforce your garage door with a brace, or if it’s old, replace it.
Keep trees properly trimmed and remove any old boughs. Regularly rake up gardening waste too.
