Does metal roofing meet the newer stringent florida building codes that were inacted after hurricane Anrew? The threaded discussion mentioned that they were rated 120 mph, which is fairly low after experiencing Charley, Frances and now ivan is on the way. The wind speeds for these hurricanes were 120~130 mph and Ivan is expected to be in excess of 130 mph.
