Here are some unpopular names this year: Ana, Bill, Claudette, Danny and Erika. If you live in hurricane-prone areas of the country, you know that these are the names given to the first hurricanes of the 2015 season, which started on June 1st.
Before the winds start to blow in your area, check your roof — especially if any type of severe weather battered your home in the past 12 months.
As a first step, coastal homeowners should make sure they have proper bracing (such as galvanized metal hurricane straps) to connect the roof to the walls of the home. For a second step, consider Class 4 Impact Rated DaVinci polymer roofing tiles.

Having a composite roofing system overhead means you have gone the extra mile to increase the odds that your home, personal belongings and family treasures will be there when the severe weather has passed.And, in many areas, there's an added benefit that selecting synthetic cedar shake or synthetic slate shingles can help lower your homeowner insurance bills.
This year, take the steps to help secure YOUR home by installing sustainable roofing from DaVinci overhead before hurricane-force winds arrive.
