Hurricane/high wind caused damage to look for on Tile Roof Systems:
The Factory Finish is scoured off by wind-borne debris.
(This damage allows water to penetrate and degrade tiles).
Surface Pitting and larger surface breakage by wind-borne debris. (This damage allows water to degrade tiles).
Lift of Tiles beyond manufacturers specifications.
(This is determined by a hand checking of tiles).
Fasteners pulled upwards, and are Not seated on the tile.
(This damage allows for easier wind lift).
Breakage by “Chattering”.
(Wind lifted tiles break when they rise and fall back in to place).
Wind-borne debris Puncturing of the sub-roofing system.
(Hot mop, felt, modified bitumen, etc). This damage can cause leaks to the interior of a structure.
Complete or partial removal/displacement of Tiles.
