The State of Florida is no stranger to hurricanes. In fact, many of these intense weather disturbances have made landfall in this part of the country—remember Andrew in ‘92 and Irma in ‘17? Given the likelihood of such occurring every year, making your home hurricane-proof might seem daunting. Then again, there are ways you can prevent or at least mitigate the potential damage from these events.
CQ Construction & Roofing, one of the top local roofing contractors, shares how we help homeowners achieve this through the products and services we offer.
Designing a Weatherproof Roofing System
Homeowners in hurricane-prone areas can take advantage of roofing systems with at least a 30-degree pitch and multiple slopes. A hip roof, for instance, doesn’t have gables or vertical sides and takes the shape of a pyramid. This style of roof has the aerodynamic construction that will help it remain intact whenever strong winds blow through it.
Since 1999, our team has been providing quality service built on hard work and honest business practices. In fact, we are chosen by many local construction industry pros for their business and personal roofing needs. We are adept at building roofs and has experience in multiple types of roofing systems such as asphalt, metal and tile.
Choosing the Right Roofing Material
Roof repairs and replacements involve choosing the right roofing material. With the help of a reputable contractor, you can easily find products capable of withstanding the destructive force of hurricanes. Certain asphalt shingles, for example, meet the toughest performance standards in the industry, in which they are subjected to various tests involving fire and wind resistance.
As a GAF Triple Excellence Award Winner, we take pride in installing the various roofing products we offer, especially those that help mitigate hurricane damage. Most of our GAF shingles are manufactured with Advanced Protection technology, which means they are engineered to perform well and stand up against external forces.
CQ Construction & Roofing is a GAF Master Elite® contractor, which is proof of our industry experience, the extensive training our members constantly undergo and the reputation in our community. You can rely on us for your roofing needs, particularly in helping prevent or mitigate hurricane damage.
