Best Ways to Avoid Roof Wind Damage

Keeping Your Roof From Being Harmed By Wind 

The DFW area is often subject to wind storms. Sometimes the remnants of tropical systems might reach the DFW area. The excess winds from those systems can harm even the newest roofs.

But you don’t have to worry about how well your roof looks if you can prepare a roof that is installed right. At Town and Country Roofing, we can help you with installing a new roof that will not come apart during a massive wind storm.

There are a few things that you can do when finding a new roof for your home to keep your roof from being at risk of harm during a wind storm. These are all simple ideas that will make your yard roof look its best.

Choose a Sturdy Material

You’ll need to find a new roof material that can persist through even the most challenging weather conditions. Metal materials are ideal for how they can be adhered to your roof with ease and stay intact.

Slate and stone materials are also robust for adding firm bodies that will not wear out all that easily. They would require extra weight, though. You can talk with us at Town and Country Roofing to learn more about what we can do for your roof.

Check the Flashing

The flashing around your roof requires careful design. The flashing should be secure enough to where the material will not be at risk of tearing apart. Anything that might be loose will produce gaps that might be hard to handle.

Note the Wind Rating

Many roofing materials come with wind ratings. A rating refers to how much wind the roof can handle. 

A higher rating suggests that the roof can handle more wind at a time. Asphalt roofing tiles, for instance, can feel winds of about 120 to 150 miles per hour depending on the body.

Review the quality of the roofing materials based on how much wind they can handle. This is especially critical if you live in an area that consistently gets wind storms.

Keep Eaves Under Control

Underhangs, eaves, and other things that wind can catch may threaten the quality of your roof. You can ask us to work with adding new covers and controls over these features. Your eaves can receive full sheets to keep your roof from possibly coming apart when there’s a massive wind storm where you are.

Secure the eves all around. There should not be any possible gaps or openings that might make it easy for the wind to get in the way and possibly harm the quality of your roof.
