Protect Your New Home From Storms Using These Innovations
As any experience Florida resident knows, to say that we get our fair share of storms would be an understatement. Whether we’re talking hurricanes, tornadoes, tropical storms, flooding, or high winds and rain in general, our houses tend to take a beating.
Here are a few ideas for your new home that will help protect it from future storms.
3 Things that Will Make Your New Home More Storm Resistant
· Low-sloped hip roof
Reduce the effect that wind will have on your home by giving it a hip rather than gable roof. It should also have a low slope, preferably pitched above 4/12 and below 6/12.
· Go low-profile
A low-profile – meaning shorter – house is significantly less vulnerable to whatever a storm throws at it. So build a single story. If you’re looking for the square footage of a two story house, consider building flat and wide instead.
· Impact resistant openings
By openings, we mean doors. When building a new house in storm-riddled Florida, spending the extra cash on impact resistant doors, garage doors, shutters, and windows will be worth the investment.
