When it comes to storms and hurricanes, your roof can be a major point of entry for damage from wind, rain, and debris. That’s one of the reasons the Florida Building Code places such emphasis on decreasing the risk of roof intrusion. The latest building code prioritizes measures designed to help keep the roof attached to the building during major weather events. These measures include features like tie-down beams and thoughtful selection of roofing materials.
Experts advise that properties with roofs constructed of clay tiles or asphalt shingles that are over 10 years old are at particularly high risk compared to newer roofs constructed of these materials. This means it’s imperative to consider roof repair or roof replacement if you have an aging roof. Flat and barrel tile roofs can also be broken by impacts from flying debris.
Your roof is one of your home’s primary defenses against weather-related damage. Whether or not you were impacted by this year’s hurricane season, engaging a Florida licensed roof contractor is one of the best things you can do to help make sure your home is ready for next year’s storms.
