I am a project manager for a large roofing company in the south. We have tackled many hail storms in the past, but recently there was a lot of wind damage in a couple of LARGE neighborhoods.
Mostly the damge you find are shingles that are lifted, or sometimes blown off. (3tabs)
Anyway, some insurance companies are paying to repace the entire roof and some are arguing that the lifted tabs will re-seal with heat from the sun.
What are your opininions on wind damage? For example do you think that once a tab has been compromised it will lay flat and re-seal like new??
Also, what about nail pull thru, or damage undlerlayment as a result of wind damage?
Are there any links or facts that could be provided as proof when going to battle against the insurance companies?? (mostly State Farm, Travelers, All-Snake)
