Leon Valley Roofing Contractor talks about Straight Line Wind Damage

Bret Hannah, President of Leon Valley Roofing Contractor Rhino Tuff Roofing, has seen it all in his 30+ years as a roofing and general contractor.

Tornado Wikipedia Commons AA lot of people only worry about tornadoes but winds as low as 40 – 50 miles per hour can cause roof damage if your roof is improperly installed or if it has been damaged from prior weather events. Flapping shingles and torn or damaged shingles can provide a place where wind or water can get under the shingle. Of course water can seep into the attic and cause tremendous damage. Wind can grab the corners of damaged shingles and cause them to vibrate or flap and over time that can cause weakening of the shingle and damage to other shingles around the damaged one.

Recently a storm in the Tyler Texas area caused damage to a number or properties. Initially the local residents thought that they had suffered a tornado, however, after storm damage assessments have determined that the damage was from straight line winds. Here is a link: http://www.myeasttex.com/news/anderson-county-damage-thursday-not-of-tornado to a story from a local television station.
