Wind Damage to Siding
How Does Wind Damage Your Siding?
Wind damage to siding can vary in degree of severity, ranging from minimal damage that can be easily repaired to catastrophic damage that requires more in-depth repairs or even a full siding replacement.
An extremely strong gust of wind can completely lift and tear off the siding from your home, leaving gaps in your siding or leaving it loose, which you may hear flapping. Siding damaged in this way is left vulnerable to compounding impairment, especially if storms continue or accompany the high winds. Wind damage to your siding results in damage to the groove system that keeps your siding waterproof, leaving your home vulnerable to water damage.
In other cases, damage may be difficult to discern because it is not always immediately visible. Unnoticed damage can compound over time and can lead to more serious damage to your home. For this reason, it is extremely important to have your siding inspected after you suspect damage so that problems can be detected early before they turn into more serious complications.
Windstorms can also cause large debris (such as fallen branches) to strike parts of your property. This can result in large-scale damage to your property, as large debris colliding with your home can seriously damage not just your siding but your roofing system, water mitigation system, and windows, among other things.
