Problems with Blow-Offs on ‘Lifetime’ Asphalt Shingles

Problems with Blow-Offs on ‘Lifetime’ Asphalt Shingles
Roofing

Don’t worry, the asphalt shingle roofing manufacturers have wind warranties that limit and exclude the compensation you can receive for damages! We’re being sarcastic here, but the fact is most roof warranties exclude “acts of God.”


“Acts of God.” means you cannot reasonably hold the manufacturer liable for forces not within its control. Some manufacturers exclude roof damage caused by hurricanes and still others exclude lesser damage caused by gales or high wind gusts. This can leave you with no recourse after a bad storm.See for yourself below. This information is excerpted from the warranty of one of the top shingle roofing manufacturers in North America. 

Roofing Options That Stand Up to Hurricanes

If you have dealt with multiple roof repairs due to shingles that have been blown off the roof by high winds, there is another option. How about steep-slope roofing products which are proven and have made it through some of the largest hurricanes to hit North America? Are roofing companies able to install roofing in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, the Eastern Shore and other areas of Virginia that really work against high wind? Yes! Our recommendations for wind-resistant materials include:

  • Slate. Hurricane Katrina hit the French Quarter area of New Orleans, where there are many slate roofs, and they stood strong with very minor damage.
  • Metal. In Superstorm Sandy, metal shingles withstood a direct hit with no problems.
  • Lightweight real slate. The Roofing Company now offers lightweight real slate with even more wind-resistant installation.

The Roofing Company installs a full range of quality roofing materials, and our slate mechanics are widely regarded as Hampton Roads’ slate roofing experts. We are members of The National Slate Association and the Slate Roofing Contractors Association. For more information on steep-slope roofing products that have an excellent track record for resisting some of the most severe storms to hit North America, call The Roofing Company today at (757)-867-6600
