Our recent high winds are keeping metro roofers busy. In the past few days we’ve seen winds as strong as those in a tropical storm.
Gusts up to 60-miles-an-hour blew through last weekend taking sections of shingles along the way.
Roofer Mike Brinkman got a dozen calls for repairs. Most of the damage was to roofs installed late last fall and there was some to new homes under construction.
Brinkman said, “We can go up and fix it and I heavily recommend, highly recommend, using roof cement when re-installing these shingles, just to help adhere those shingles that have blown off. Five or six fasteners wouldn't hurt."
Shingles have a wind rating so it's important to let roofers know how windy it gets in your area.
