Hurricane proof roof design – Does it Exist?

Posted on May 20, 2022 in by kcoughlin

The official start of hurricane season in south Florida is June 1. This leads many people to question the integrity of their roof. And, to ask the question – “Is there a hurricane proof roof design?”

In short, there isn’t any roof on the market that is 100% guaranteed against hurricanes. After all, Mother Nature is a strong force and what she will bring during hurricane season 2022 is anyone’s guess. However, there are some steps you can take to secure your roof for hurricanes. If you are in the market for a new roof in Palm Beach or Broward, there are certain types we offer that stand up better than others against severe weather.

Hurricane Proof Roof Design – What You Can Do About Your Current Roof

If you aren’t yet in the market for the best roofing contractor, here are some tips on what you can do to secure your current roof. 

  • Get it checked. Making sure your roof is in tip top condition is step one. You can begin by getting on your roof and looking for any loose areas, cracks, and general wear and tear. If you observe anything questionable, or aren’t sure what to look for, call a trusted roofing company to come look at it for you.
  • Look at the area around your roof. If you have trees on your property, now is the time to make sure they are trimmed back and not overhanging your roof. Strong winds and rain can bring large tree branches down on your roof, causing massive damage. Additionally, look at the edges of your roof and under your roof for any cracks where the light is shining through.
  • Secure your roof. Things like metal hurricane clips can help to reinforce your roof in the event of a hurricane. Same goes for applying roofing cement, especially to shingles. Hurricane straps help too.

The best thing you can do to hurricane proof your roof is invest in a strong and durable roof design.
