While there is no such thing as a completely “hurricane- proof roof,” proper preventative measures and expert commercial and residential roofing repair services can help ensure your roof remains strong and resistant when—and after—those hurricanes hit.
Roof repair due to hurricane or storm damage is a reality many Florida property owners will have to face. Unfortunately, hurricanes are simply a fact of life in our area. Even the strongest roofs can suffer severe damage from excessive rain and violent winds, and even “invisible” roofing damage, if left untreated, has the potential to cause serious and expensive structural weakness in your building or home.
That’s why businesses and homeowners alike have relied on A.A.T. Roofing for hurricane damage repair and hurricane roofing system installation services for over 40 years. From Port Orange and the Greater Daytona Beach area and beyond, the hurricane roofing professionals at A.A.T. have unparalleled experience maintaining, repairing, and—when necessary—replacing all types of roofing systems, including flat roofs, metal roofs, tiles, shingles, and more.
Hurricane-Rated Metal Roofing Professionally Installed on Your Home or Business
Florida homeowners should consider installing hurricane-rated metal roofing to protect against the vicious winds that will inevitably engulf their home. AAT roofing offers a variety of different types of hurricane-rated metal roofing panels to shield your home. We receive most of our metal roofing products from Petersen Metal, which is known for exceptional durability and dependability. We typically install hidden fastener clip systems for our customers, which have a very high factor of safety and are designed to withstand massive shear forces from even the most violent hurricanes.
Achieving Florida Building Code Compliance while Protecting Your Family and Property
The Florida Building Code mandates that all homes must be designed to withstand massive windstorms. We are in a high velocity hurricane zone, because wind speeds can reach up to 150 mph. Therefore, all homes in the area are required to have hurricane-rated roofing before a Certificate of Occupancy can be issued.
Your roof is usually the most vulnerable part of your home. It can be seriously damaged by a major hurricane, and unfortunately, damage to your roof places the rest of your home at risk. It can lead to secondary problems, including:
- High moisture levels, which can cause mildew and rot
- Harmful contaminants, which threaten the health of your family
- Falling debris, which can damage other parts of your home
These problems will become much more complicated and costly if they aren’t addressed early on, but with help from the hurricane roofing installation experts at A.A.T. Roofing, you’ll know that your home or business is protected and ready for the next hurricane season.
Wind Vented Roof Systems for Florida Condominiums and Industrial Buildings
Negative pressure roofing systems, also known as wind-vented roofing systems are a great choice for Florida condominiums, industrial buildings, and commercial spaces. Over time, wind can cause your roof to deteriorate. Additionally, event-based roof damage, such as that from hurricanes and tropical storms, are problematic along the Florida Coastline. Sheer forces caused by high wind speeds can weaken the connections between the roof and the building structure, which can lead to long-term damage to your roof and the rest of the building.
Fortunately, wind damage can be easily prevented if the right precautions are taken. Wind Vented roof systems are rated up to 200mph and are loaded with other advantages that have helped many commercial property owners in Fl. save tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars, in repairs. In fact, many condo associations could have avoided problematic, multi-million-dollar insurance claims by retrofitting a wind vented roof system during their last renovation or roof repair.
How Can a Wind Vented Roofing System Protect Your Condo or Industrial Building Roof?
When wind blows over it, it creates a vacuum, which forces the valve to open. Air and pressure are removed from the system forming a tight air seal. Over the past 15 years, there have been no reports of negative pressure roof system failures, when the systems are installed by competent roofing professionals and maintained properly.
