Roof Systems & Storm Preparedness
Some of the greatest damage to a building during a major storm, such as a tropical storm or a hurricane, generally occurs as a result of high winds that compromise the roof system by uplift, causing the entire roof to blow off or components such as slates to blow off. Although some preventative measures may be taken to an existing roof system, some improvements cannot be completed unless a new roof is installed or an existing roof is replaced. Storm preparedness options for a roof includes:
• Adding bracing or additional structural elements to roof framing and gable ends – Consultation with an architect or engineer might be required
• Strengthening connections between roof framing elements using hurricane straps, clips, sheathing, attachments, etc. – Consultation with an architect or engineer might be required
• Installing a secondary roofing system such as self-adhered roofing applied to plywood under slate, tile or metal roofing in the event the primary roof is damaged – Verify material installation requirements for primary roofing
• Sealing and protecting skylights, monitors, cupolas and roof vents, including gable-end vents, prior to the storm to minimize impact, wind-driven rain and uplift damage
• Repointing chimneys and securing tile roofing, ridge tiles, cresting and finials with mortar
• Installing metal roofing and flashing with double-lock seams and edges and closely spaced, high-strength fasteners
• Fastening gutters and downspouts securely to the building
• Avoiding use of gravel or other loose materials on a rooftop that could become airborne during a storm
• Reviewing the underside of a roof from the attic for signs of moisture or daylight indicating a potential crack or hole, paying particular attention at roof penetrations such as a chimney
