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.
