Another Wind Storm
March 2, 2021
We’ve been having a wind storm, stronger than the one back in 2017 that nearly ripped the roof off before it was completed. This time with wind speeds were up to 30 mph with some gusts up to 60 mph. All night it’s been rather loud, making me aware of it and worried about what damage it might cause.
This morning I looked out the window and discovered that a section of the ridge cap on the north side of the building was gone.
Thankfully the roof is pitching the wind over the exposed roofing panel edges, so I don’t expect the panels will rip off.
I don’t expect the ridge cap will be reusable. It’s very badly damaged. I moved it, and the trim-piece that also came off, into the studio to avoid further damage.
