Storm damage caused by wind can occur with gusts as little as 15-20 MPH. Once the seal on the tar strip between the shingles is compromised, leaks will occur. The wind will lift the shingles allowing rain water to back up under the shingles and soak through the decking into your home. This not only causes water damage inside your home, it will rot the decking on your roof and possibly create a mold issue in your home.
Your insurance company will pay for your new roof from wind damage, but you only have 365 days from the date of the storm to file the claim, replace the roof, and return the invoice. Most home owners will try to repair the shingles that are blown off the home, but miss the cracked and broken shingles that lay back down in place on the roof. This is problematic for water leaks and damage over time.
