Strong wind roof

High winds do not come on their own and are often accompanied by other severe conditions such as heavy rain, hail, and lightning, so the robustness of the roof system is very important.

Hurricane

Homes in hurricane-prone areas will experience the toughest tests, and homeowners will need to use sturdy roof systems to cope.

Tornado

Tornadoes are sometimes accompanied by thunderstorms and hail. You need a roof that can withstand not only strong winds, but also hail.

Wind and rain

Wind and rain is water that is blown into the sides of the roof by strong winds. Regardless of the type of wind and rain, you need a roof system that prevents rainwater from seeping in.

Wind Uplift

When the wind blows over the roof, the air pressure above the roof suddenly decreases, and the air pressure below the roof system is greater than the air pressure above, causing the roof to lift.

So, you need a roof that can be ventilated at the bottom when it is hot and can be closed at the bottom when it is windy.

Traditional roof in high winds

As mentioned above, homeowners need not only roofs that can withstand strong winds, but also the destructive power of hail, rain, and snow.

Traditional roofing materials such as terracotta, asphalt, and wood are easily blown off or torn by the wind. Exposed roof decks will suffer severe erosion.

Asphalt is easily torn or curled by strong winds. Wood shakes can crack or loosen fasteners due to vigorous shaking. The terracotta tile roof is very easy to produce Wind Uplift because of its unique barrel structure.

Traditional roofing materials have disadvantages when faced with storms or hail and are often used in temperate areas. These traditional roofing materials can’t even withstand walking on the roof, so they suffer severe damage when a hailstorm hits. Wood roofs are a little better, but as they age, it’s easy for a storm to take them away. Asphalt roofs can initially resist hail well, but tightness and integrity can be greatly compromised.

Metal roof in high winds

Metal roofs are one of the strongest and most durable on the market in the face of high winds.

  • Highest level of resistance to hail
  • Ability to withstand hurricanes
  • The service life is two to three times longer than that of traditional roofing materials
  • Metal roofs save 25% energy
  • Lower insurance costs for homeowners
  • Add value to your home

It should be noted that not all metal roofing products are created equal. Many metal roofing systems must offer high levels of protection at the expense of aesthetics, which is not optimal.

Stone-coated steel roofing in high winds

JHL stone-coated steel roofing is based on galvanized steel sheet, and the surface is coated with colored stone particles.

Steel is ideal roofing material. It can be easily stamped into various shapes and textures. Stamped steel sheets can mimic the shape of traditional roofing materials such as slate, wood, Roman shingles, and asphalt shingles, paired with colored stone particles, suitable for any style of house construction.
