When the wind gusts to over 50 MPH, it can wreak havoc on your house, especially your shingles.
Jamie Paasch from Guarantee Roofing said regardless, if one or six of your shingles blow off, you should not wait to get it fixed.
"They could very well have big problems, with water getting inside the building or home. Damage to sheet rock or inside the walls leads to mold or something like that. So it's a problem they're going to want to take care of right away."
Most importantly, do not try to do it yourself.
"I would say the first thing they would want to do, is they'd want to stay off the roofs. If they notice that they have some shingles blowing around, stay off. Call a contractor and let a professional get on the roof." said Paasch.
One Sioux Falls homeowner had her roof replaced after a Labor Day hail storm.
Her contractor came by to check it out.
"They actually practically stopped by. They refinished the roof after the Labor Day storm and stopped by to make sure all of our shingles were still intact today." Said Cierra Haffner.
Stronger winds are expected Thursday, but Haffner is not concerned.
"I'm a little bit worried. Not so much as worried as somebody who wouldn't get in contact with their contractor who just did their shingles not too long ago." She said.
If your contractor can only come when the winds are blowing, Paasch said they will know if it is safe to go on the roof, "What I would do is make the phone call to the contractor so he's well aware of it, he can come out and assess it and if it's not a safe condition he can assess it from the ground."
