Roofs during Hurricane Season

As we have seen in recent weeks, hurricanes are a reality for Florida. Every year, storms on the Gulf can potentially turn into tropical storms or hurricanes. What does this mean for your roof?

During hurricane seasons you want to ensure your roof will be able to withstand the wind and rain that comes with a hurricane.

  • Nail or caulk shingles that are loose and will come off easily during a storm.
  • If you have a metal roof, be sure to check for rust or anchoring that has come loose throughout the year.
  • Install hurricane straps; you will need to hire a licensed contractor for this project. Hurricane straps will strengthen the wood to wood and wood to concrete connections.
  • Install an additional water barrier.
