If recent years have taught South Florida residents anything, it is that Mother Nature can be both unpredictable and destructive. Officially running from June 1st through Nov. 30th, the Atlantic hurricane season is fast approaching and homeowners are taking notice earlier than ever.
While the eyes and ears of Florida residents are eagerly tuned in to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, set to give its first outlook for the 2019 hurricane season sometime in May, Aastro Roofing is taking charge, leading the way with first-hand guidance on how homeowners can prepare.
Preparing Residential Roofing for Hurricane Season
If there is one aspect of a home or structure that is guaranteed to take a real beating during hurricane weather it’s the roof. From sustained high winds to pelting rain and hail, even the best roofs can falter.
But according to Aastro Roofing, there are a number of things homeowners can do to prepare for the worst while they hope for the best.
- Install or verify that shingles are rated to withstand winds up to 150mph
- Utilize or upgrade to 6-nailed vs 4-nailed shingles
- Hire a professional to “reaffix” and/or reinforce loose shingles
- Hire a professional to upgrade roof protection with hurricane straps or other devices
Those homeowners unsure of their roof’s ability to withstand a storm should have it inspected by a professional. At Aastro Roofing they can quickly, efficiently and affordably assess residential roofs for storm preparedness ahead of hurricane season.
Repairing, replacing and/or reinforcing roofs before the next storm hits can save homeowners the stress and headache of dealing with damage in the aftermath of a storm.
Roofing inspections include:
- Professional examination of roofing materials
- Inspection of underlying membranes
- Review of drainage and flashing systems
- Identification of potential problem areas or wear
- Expert advice on cost-effective solutions
