How Can Hurricanes/High Winds Impact A Roof?

When a building is subjected to extreme winds like those during hurricanes, it can actually create an upward lift to the roof, much like what happens to an airplane wing during flight. In many cases, minor damage is caused, in others, the entire roof structure is completely sucked from the building, leaving everything inside (including families) exposed to the elements. In recent years, hurricane straps/ties have become mandatory in many places for newer construction, however, older homes may not have these protections. Do I Need Hurricane Strap Installation?

As mentioned above, newer buildings are required to have hurricane ties installed. Anyone who may have an older structure should seriously consider looking into the investment, it could help protect your family, belongings and home during the next big hurricane that hits the Florida Panhandle.
