2016 was a year of powerful wind storms in Southern Ohio. From those that blew in quickly to those that lingered and brought hail, gusts up to 70+ MPH, wind was a constant. Many hubs close to Cincinnati like Anderson Township and Mason have been well serviced by the multitude of roofers in the area. The same goes with those communities between Dayton and Columbus. There are however a few pockets that seem to have gone unchecked. It appears that roofing companies forgot Centerville, Ohio and its neighbors in Waynesville and Springboro. How can this be when there is so much damage still being found?
The Top 3 Reasons Roofing Companies Forgot Centerville, Ohio Had Wind Damage
- Service Hubs – Service zones and favored service areas differ between roofing companies. With so much damage throughout the region in 2016, those between the main hubs were somewhat overlooked by salesmen and canvasing crews.
- Unseen Damage – Homeowners don’t always see wind damage. When shingles break their seals they will often flap in strong winds but lay flat again just hours to days later. Leaks that are caused by hard-to-see wind damage can take months to years to manifest.
- Missing Cues – Usually people see roofs replaced in their neighborhood more after hailstorms. Wind takes advantage of older or flawed roofs so there will be less condensed areas affected. Without seeing roofing trucks, roof replacements, or obvious damage there seems to be no reason to play it safe and have a roof inspection.
