Photo Album: Wind Damaged Shingle Roof in Pendleton, IN
Inspector Mike Griffith received a call from a previous roof repair client of his stating she noticed some missing shingles from her roof. Upon arrival, Mike could see a handful of missing shingles on one elevation. Upon further inspection, he could see that two elevations on the home were impacted by wind. Due to the sustained wind damage, Mike recommended the homeowner file an insurance claim. The roof was eventually replaced after much back and forth with the insurance company. This specific client had a roof over, which did cause delays in navigating the insurance claim process. You can see in the photos that there is another layer of shingles underneath the damaged ones.
