Asphalt shingle roofing that is widely used in US has been observed to be prone to wind damage. Also roofing damage often creates the opening that leads rain water into the building and may cause significant further loss to interior contents. Correctly estimating wind damage for asphalt shingle roofing has its significance from the perspective of wind loss mitigation and wind risk management. This paper focuses on the application and validation of the asphalt shingle roof damage estimation method presented in the previous paper (Huang et. al, 2015, "Data-based probabilistic damage estimation for asphalt shingle roofing." J. Struct. Eng.,, thereafter denoted as DBPDE method). Firstly, the DBPDE method is employed to estimate the asphalt shingle roofing damage for a single residence. Secondly, the estimation procedure is extended to a group of residences in an area. Finally, the shingle resistance estimation and the validation of the damage estimation method are conducted using field survey data.
