Wind


Roof damage is one of the most expensive cost homeowners face after an extreme windstorm hits their area. High winds are also typically accompanied by heavy rains, which expose homes with compromised roofs to massive amounts of water damage. For areas with inclement weather, metal roofs are the smart choice. Metal roofing can withstand gusts of wind of up to 140 mph. And because they consist of large interlocking panels, metal roofing resist uplift caused by high winds further reducing the risk of water intrusion.

Marine

Metal roofing offers exceptional protection from extreme weather, including tropical storms, and is ideal for homes in coastal areas. Modern galvanized steel roofing is comprised of a steel core with a zinc/aluminum coating surrounding it and delivers great resistance to harsh marine conditions. Aluminum, copper and zinc roofing also provide a lifetime of protection for your coastal home.
