Roofing Services after the Storm
Florida is a wonderful state to call home with its warm sunny weather and plethora of things to do. However, the state has more than its share of hurricanes, tornadoes, and other damaging storms. For example, Naples, Florida averages a direct hit from a hurricane once every seven years. The average wind speed of these hurricanes is 111 mph, and Naples is statistically overdue for a direct hit by one year! The high speed winds associated with these storms is a primary reason why homeowners probably need Roof Repair in Naples, FL after the storm is over.
Building codes for roofs in windy locations require stronger roofs than for those in areas with less wind. However, sometimes wind loads can damage even the best built roof. The effect of wind moving over a roof is not uniform. The perimeter of the roof typically experiences higher pressures than the center of the roof. This means that shingles and membranes on the roof’s edge tend to blow off first followed by those near the center. Anywhere these materials are just a little bit loose will be raised up by the wind. This allows more wind to get below the loose portion and raise more of the roof. What you end up with is a peeling effect that can dislodge an entire roof. Even if the roof does not blow off, wind blown debris such as branches, shards of glass, and pieces of metal can cause massive damage to a roof.
