What is Wind Damage?
45 – 57 mph Wind Damage:
The National Weather Service states that gusts up to 45 mph can start to cause minor damage, but this speed range is regarded as “non-severe”. These weak winds may break some tree limbs and harm shingles that are already loosened or vulnerable.
58 – 74 mph Wind Damage:
When the wind becomes particularly strong, buildings and landscape sustain serious damage. At this range, wind will uproot trees, peel off shingles that were in good shape, damage chimneys, and take down entire tree limbs.
75+ mph Wind Damage:
At this speed, wind will significantly damage the roofs of homes and businesses as well as cause widespread damage to trees and mobile homes.
