Nebraska and Iowa were recently affected by what is called a derecho. What is a derecho; it’s a line of intense, widespread, and fast-moving windstorms and sometimes thunderstorms that move across a great distance and is characterized by damaging winds. Derecho is just as likely to happen in Iowa as a hurricane is to happen in Florida. Derecho can cause more damage than a tornado being that they cover a wider spread area, and some damages include missing shingles, siding ripping off, or maybe the whole roof has been taken off of the house.

Depending on the type of shingles you have, the wind rating can vary if you have an older roof with 3-tab shingles on it the wind rating is 60 mph while if you have architectural shingles, can withstand winds up to 130 mph. Before you get on your roof, contact a local roofing inspector from Weathershield Roofing to see if they would be able to come out and assess the damages done to see if an insurance claim needs to be filed. Weathershield will help you with your insurance claim and submit documents directly to the insurance company to speed up the process. Weathershield will meet the insurance adjuster at your home for the inspection from your insurance and help with insurance to make sure everything but the deducible is paid for.
