The past couple of years have seen vast numbers of Americans from all across the country migrate to the world-renowned “Sunshine State.” People have been moving to Florida for many reasons, mainly the weather, beaches, and theme parks do the trick, but other issues like no state income tax also don’t hurt. One drawback, however, is living in Florida comes with the risk of hurricanes. Sadly, this nightmare has become a reality for many new Florida homeowners on the west coast of Florida.
Following the storm, Whale Roofing & Construction of Boca Raton has seen quite an uptick in new homeowners on the east coast of Florida calling about getting a new, more substantial, more hurricane-proof roof. In addition, homeowners are keen on upgrading to a new metal or tile roof.
While shingles with new-age technology do hold up quite well vs. hurricane-force winds, it is not as formidable as tile and not metal. Much of this concern is people being proactive, as news of a hurricane can give you mere days of warning, which is nowhere near enough time to get a new roof replacement if needed.
Derek, owner and operator of Whale Roofing & Construction, said, “I really am happy that people are being more proactive about getting a better roof. Hurricane Ian reminds many Floridians how dangerous hurricanes are, as we haven’t had a big one like that for many years. Metal roofing is the way to go regarding protection vs. hurricanes. Metal roofs provide great strength vs. flying debris and are also fire-resistant. And if metal isn’t what is wanted, then I would suggest tile roofing; tile provides excellent defense against hurricanes too.”
