On August 4, 2011 the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued an updated forecast for the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season that predicts more storms and hurricanes than was originally thought to occur. Peak hurricane months are between August and October in the Atlantic region and even FEMA has warned residents to get prepared.
You don't have to live in the Atlantic, however, to respect the enormous force of Mother Nature. Midwestern storms can have hurricane-strong gusts and create havoc on trees and building structures. This makes it important to choose the right product and performance-based roofing contractor when considering applications for roof repairs or new roofs.
Many Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing manufactures have products that carries the Miami-Dade County Notice of Acceptance as protecting the roof in winds up to 150 miles per hour, or a level 5 hurricane, when properly applied over concrete, steel or a smooth surface BUR wood deck. The system creates a monolithic seal over the roof, making it impossible to detach in high winds. When applied by a an accredited roofing professional, Polyurethane Spray Foam Roofing can meet the needs of building owners in the Midwest.
