What kinds of storms cause roof damage?
Nickel-sized or larger hailstones will cause definitive roof damage. Even smaller sized hail can damage an already troubled roof. Gusting high winds can blow off or damage shingles, especially if the roof is showing signs of aging. Couple that with torrents of rain, and you have a formula for disaster.
Shingles are rated to reflect their maximum wind resistance as well as longevity. These things should be considered when selecting shingles for your re-roof.
