  • Tin Lifted and Warped
  • Tiles Moved and Cracked
  • Guttering Battered and Damaged

Tin Lifted and Warped

In gusty winds, the slightest lifted area of tin can be caught in a strong updraft and ripped further from the roof surface. This not only causes a safety hazard, it can result in rain water getting into the roof cavity and causing leaks inside your home.

Tiles Moved and Cracked

RoofIf the membrane or cement that holds your tiles in place is a little worn or damaged, it can result in tiles moving in strong winds. Being that these tiles bear the brunt of harsh elements all year round, they can crack easily when moved and even slide off the roof surface entirely. Again, this can be a safety hazard to people underneath and allow water to enter the roof.

Guttering Battered and Damaged

Your roof is not the only surface that gets battered around in bad winds. The attached guttering can also come loose, get caught in passing winds and become detached from the house and severely damaged. One loose clip is all it takes for the fixture to become unstable and can result in a whole downpipe, roof gutter or fascia needing to be replaced.
