As many people learned the hard way, hurricane season requires proper preparation in SouthWest Florida. One of the best ways to prepare yourself and your family is installing a great roof from the start! RoofRX would be more than happy to help! While shingles are the most commonly installed roofing material, they are certainly not the strongest material. Most shingles are rated for only about 130-150 mph winds. Our last hurricane, Ian, had sustained winds of 155+ with gusts reaching higher than that.
After hurricane Ian, post-hurricane roof inspections have found that metal roofs fared far better than those roofs that were covered by traditional asphalt shingles.
Most metal roof systems are rated for 140 mph and higher. One reason that most metal roofing systems perform better in extreme weather is the fact that they consist of large interlocking panels, which resist uplift caused by high winds as a single unit and further reduce the risk of water intrusion.
Worthouse takes all that one step farther! Worthouse Smart Metal Roofing systems are changing the future of roofing! Not only do these roofing systems look absolutely stunning, but they also provide some of the best roofing classifications and warranties.
Worthouse offers high wind protection with Class 90 certification for the UL 580 Wind Uplift Resistance test. They have tested all their products at wind speeds over 200 mph!
Worthouse uses steel for its durability and environmental friendliness. Not only does a steel roof last twice as long as conventional roofing products, but it is also one of the most recycled products on earth. Their material has achieved Class 4 ratings according to the UL 2218 Roof Impact Classifications, being able to withstand hailstorms, extreme rain and wind, as well as snow and extreme heat.
Worthouse Smart Metal Tiles have also scored “A” rating in fire protection according to the UL 790 (ASTM E 108) Fire Protection Ratings.
Worthouse metal tiles all have a protective coating. With these coatings and properly installed system, Worthouse offers both 30 and 50 year warranties on their products. Qualifications do apply however, such as how close do you live near the ocean. However, all in all Worthouse boasts that no re-roof will be necessary and their system will serve for generations to come.
