Finding Wind Damage on Your Commercial Roof

Updated: May 16, 2023

Be on the Lookout for Roof Wind Damage

Here in Colorado and throughout the west, high winds can be a common occurrence, especially during winter blizzards and in the Spring, when winds can reach near hurricane speeds. These winds won’t only blow the hat off your head, they can damage your commercial roof, too.


Thankfully, today’s commercial roofs are designed to withstand wind. However, it’s important to inspect roofs periodically for wind damage, especially after windy weather.


Signs of Wind Damage

  • Damage to flashing

  • Damaged insulation, deck panels, or membrane

  • Tears, punctures, wrinkles
