The effect of wind moving over a roof is not uniform. Areas like the corners and perimeter of the roof can be susceptible to higher wind pressures, while the center of the roof might have lower stresses. According to the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), most wind damage to a roof starts on the edge. Anywhere the roofing material is even a little bit loose, the wind can get below it and push it up, thus giving the wind more to grab onto next time and creating a chain peeling effect. This type of wind damage can start very small, but continue to grow over time through repeated exposure to wind.
Roofing contractors recommend that you trim all branches that come within six feet of your roof. Not only will you protect your roof from potential tree damage caused by severe weather, you will also prevent small animals from scampering across your roof to try to gain access to your home for spring nesting. You should also look at trees that are near your home. For instance, trees that stand close enough to fall on your roof when exposed to sleet and snow, pouring rain, or high winds are a major threat to the health of your roof.
