Hurricanes can produce winds as high as 150 miles per hour. This can do a lot of damage to your home and property, especially your roof. In the midst of a hurricane, a roof that is not fortified against high winds may lose shingles, felt paper, and even sheathing.
Hurricane season begins June 1. That may seem like a long way off, but time passes quickly. If your roof isn’t hurricane ready, your home could be vulnerable. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to protect your home from hurricane-force winds and rain.
