BUT HOW ACCURATE ARE THESE PREDICTIONS?
While all these storms have been predicted, it’s good to remember that forecasting is not an exact science, but it’s always better to be prepared.
“There is no strong correlation between the number of storms or hurricanes and U.S. landfalls in any given season” but “residents of the coastal U.S. should prepare each year no matter the forecast,” said the Weather Company.
PROTECT YOUR ROOF TO PROTECT YOUR HOME
The roof of your home is the first stage of defense against harsh weather and extreme conditions. It is also one area of your home susceptible to wind damage from hurricanes.
Hurricane force winds have been recorded as 190 miles per hour. As those winds pass over a home it creates a strong pulling force - almost like a vacuum. If shingles or other roofing components are not securely attached, they will simply peel off. In the worst-case scenario, hurricane force winds can pull off the roof sheathing which can compromise the house's structural integrity.
If you live in an area prone to hurricanes like Florida, one of the best ways to protect your home is to invest in a durable roof designed to withstand strong winds. Stone coated steel is a great, durable option but when combined with our concealed fastening system, a Tilcor roof delivers on every level.
