Downed trees and power lines, power outages and broken windows are just some of the effects of wind damage. Strong winds can rip through neighbourhoods and tear down structures. It can smash roofs and wreck cars. It can also do damage that isn’t as obvious. Sometimes it takes an expert eye to recognize potential problems after a wind storm.
WHY IS WIND SO DAMAGING?
The direct force of the wind can tear away things like shingles and siding, and can even damage building structures. What is more, when the wind whips around buildings, negative pressure is applied to the leeward side. That negative pressure causes sucking. Put another way, the wind creates a vacuum that pulls on the building. That vacuum can be powerful enough to shatter windows from the outside.
YOUR WIND DAMAGE, OUR HELP
Many of our clients call us about damage caused by objects the wind has upended, like trees and power lines. The tall poles fall onto cars and roofs. When that happens, it’s important to remove the offending object and cover up any openings right away. That way, your wind-related problems aren’t compounded by newer ones, like water damage from the rain.
