Is your Dr Phillips area roof ready for the big storms coming our way? While your roof may not be on the top of your hurricane preparedness list, but it’s one of the most important aspect of your home.
Choosing the right roofer, shingles, underlayment, and materials all go into a quality roof that can withstand a strong storm or hurricane.
Choosing the Right Contractor
It’s easy to think all roofing contractors are about the same, but a fly by night roofer can end up causing you a lot of frustration when your roof starts leaking or damaged because of high winds. Then you find out the warranty won’t cover the cost of the repairs because the roofer wasn’t certified by the manufacturer.
Why won’t the damages be covered? Those certified by the manufacturer will have the proper experience and training to properly install and repair all types of projects.
Choosing the Right Shingles
The best shingles will have a quality adhesion system and the highest possible wind rating, to reduce the chance of the shingles raising or blowing over in severe weather conditions.
“How tough are GAF shingles? According to this recent extreme shingle testing demonstration, they’re tough enough to withstand hurricane-force-winds, more water than any rainstorm will hit them with, and a continuous blast of red hot embers.”
It also offers potential insurance savings, many companies have significant discounts for GAF products.
