A Metal Roof Can Minimize Hurricane Damage

Here in coastal North Carolina, another hurricane season is upon us. We know to have a hurricane preparedness plan and emergency supplies to stay safe during and after a possible storm, but how can we minimize damage to our homes? Roof damage is particularly common from hurricanes and tropical storms. Asphalt shingle roofs are on the majority of homes, but they are only durable in wind up to 60 mph. Hurricane force winds are 75 mph to well over 100 mph. Metal roofing is a more durable alternative available to homeowners attempting to be prepared and minimize hurricane damage to their homes.
