Wind and Tornado Damage
Wind and Tornado Damage Roof Repair
Preventing serious roofing damage starts in choosing the right system for your environment. Colorado can experience strong winds in places along the Front Range like Fort Collins and Colorado Springs, as well as intense northern plain storms in areas like Greeley. Roofing systems are designed to resist regular winds, but after the big storm hits do you know what you should be looking for?
Keeping safety in mind you can spot serious damage quickly and should call us immediately to prevent any future damage.
These are some things you should be looking for after a windstorm:
- Examine your roof for any missing shingles.
Check for any cracked or curled shingles.
- Be aware of any area of shingles that may be missing a significant amount of granules from their surface.
- Take a look for any nails that may have been pulled up. This will be obvious if the shingles look loose or if you can see the tops of any nails.
- Check roofing intersections to make sure water is not able to leak into the house.
Colorado storms usually come with wind and can produce incredibly chaotic systems, which can cause serious damage to your roof. After a storm hits, be sure to assess your roof’s condition immediately.
Areas as far north as Cheyenne are prone to even more extreme conditions such as tornados. In the unfortunate circumstance that your community is hit with a tornado, Parker Roofing Contractors is there to help get you back on your feet and secure the roof over your head.
CAREFUL, it’s also not safe to get up on the roof yourself to check for wind damage, especially if it’s still windy. If you need an expert to come and inspect your roof for wind damage, call Parker Roofing Contractors and we’ll inspect your roof.
Parker Roofing Contractors is there for backup when disaster strikes.

If you ignore repairing or replacing your roof when there are signs that its integrity has been compromised, it will lead to damaging the entire structure of your home as it becomes more exposed to the elements, which will deteriorate the siding, interior and foundation.
If you’re noticing leaks, your roof has already been compromised. It is recommended by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) that you get your home’s roof inspected at least twice a year – preferably every spring and fall season. Inspecting the roof for certain signs will help prevent total roof damage, signs like:
- Missing or cracked shingles
- Blistering or peeling paint
- Soggy, damp shingles
- Leakage in the attic
- Chimney leaks
There are many other signs that your home’s roof needs replacement. We can help find and point them out (if any). You can get your roof inspected for FREE by Parker Roofing Contractors.
A roof has an average lifespan of about 20 years. It may vary depending on the roof material and roof type, as some materials have a longer lifespan and some roof types and materials don’t last as long. We will gladly help you choose the best roof material and type for your home.
It’s always best when replacing a roof to TEAR OFF the existing one rather than ROOF OVER the old one. Most of the time we recommend your old roof be completely removed, as we need to address the root of the problem before covering it up again. Unless the initial roof is a single, problem-free layer (which we check for), it’s best to avoid having more problems in the future by removing the old roof. We will inspect your roof for FREE to see whether your old roof is worth keeping on or not.
It’s hard to give an exact answer without looking at your roof, as the time it will take depends on the type of roof. With most residential properties, we are able to replace a roof anywhere from one day to a week. The best way to know is to get a FREE estimate on your roof.
We STRONGLY recommend you don’t do this, as the labor and logistics are sometimes overwhelming for the untrained and inexperienced. It’s also very unsafe to be up on your roof without proper equipment and training. We can give you estimates and options to choose from before replacing or repairing your roof.
What is the best car? As this is a subjective question, we wish we had a simple answer for this – what may be best for your neighbor’s roof might not be best for your roof. It depends on your roof’s pitch, shape and style. We can give you a better answer to what is the best roof for you after inspecting it for FREE.
