Hurricanes are a real concern for anyone who lives near the ocean in the Southeast United States. Those massive, churning storms can cause flooding, create tragedies, and literally tear down structures with their powerful, gale force winds. When a hurricane hits your area, you are at the mercy of the elements. Nevertheless, you can up the odds in your favor if you have a strong, solid roof. The reason for this is because the roof acts like armor in helping to protect the structure of your home or business from high winds that hurl debris and threaten to peel off roof tiles. Of course, you have to use the right sort of roofing materials to keep the armor intact.
DaVinci composite roofing tiles do a great job protecting your home against hurrican force winds. On many roof types, tiles engineered by DaVinci Roofscapes are rated to withstand Class 5 Hurricane Zone Force winds and a Class 4 impact rating. The importance of having a roof that can withstand high winds is especially important because it only takes a few tiles getting blown off to dramatically weaken the rest of the roof. Those holes provide routes for high winds to enter and possibly tear off the rest of the roof.
