As a homeowner in the Tampa area, you know how important it is to have a roof that is wind resistant during the annual hurricane season. A poor quality roof that isn’t resistant to high winds is not only dangerous, it can end up being very costly, as well. High winds can rip poor quality roofing materials right off of your home, resulting in structural damage to your roof and potential water damage to the inside of your home.
If you need a new roof for your home, then it’s important to hire a Tampa roofing contractor that will not only provide high quality wind resistant roofing options, but install them properly as well. The following are a few of the wind resistant roofing options that we offer at Imperial Roofing Contractor:
- Shingles – We offer GAF Advanced Protection Shingles to our customers. These shingles have undergone more than 185 individual tests in order to ensure durability, flexibility, and wind uplift resistance, including two of the toughest wind resistance tests in the industry: the Class F Test and the Class H Test. The Class F Test tests the shingles at winds of up to 110 mph while the Class H Test tests the shingles at up to 150 mph, ensuring that they will provide top notch resistance during hurricane season.
- Metal – Metal is probably the most wind resistant material you can choose for a roof. This is due to the fact that metal is usually installed in panels, often long panels, that are practically impossible for winds to penetrate – unlike some other roofing materials.
- Tiles – Concrete and clay tiles have always been known to be very resistant to wind; it’s the way that they are installed that is often the issue. Most tiles will resist winds of 125 mph as long as they are properly installed using a foam adhesive and a metal ridge cap that is securely fastened.
In order to make sure that your Tampa home is safe during hurricane season, it’s important that you hire a trustworthy Tampa roofing contractor to install a wind resistant roof. Here at Imperial Roofing Contractor, we are certified as a Master Elite GAF Roofing Contractor and with the Tile Roofing Institute of America.
