hurricane-resistant synthetic thatch

Wind ratings on roofing products are often overlooked or misunderstood. Yet, they are important for determining if a product is suitable for a particular structure. If a structure is located in a setting or location susceptible to high winds or high uplift pressures, it’s important to know the wind rating. The rating conveys how much force a roofing material can withstand.

Some people believe that a wind rating is based on actual wind speeds alone. In reality, a wind rating classification correlates to uplift pressures in pounds per square foot, not on wind speeds in miles per hour! This is a common error made by building owners and even some DIY enthusiasts.

For more details about wind ratings, specifically, how civil engineers determine the needs of an individual roof, check out an earlier blog post.
