3 Things to Ask a Roofing Contractor Before You Hire

Do you ever wonder what a Category 3 Hurricane like Ophelia actually is? What does the rating mean? The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane wind scale rates storms based on their wind speed. Hurricanes often are moved between categories as their wind speeds change.

Category 1 hurricanes have wind speeds between 74 and 95 miles per hour. Even a Category 1 hurricane cause a lot of damage to siding and roofs. Category 2 hurricanes have wind speeds that range between 96 and 110 miles per hour. Category 3 storms like Hurricane Ophelia have sustained winds as high as 111 and 129 miles per hour. A Category 3 hurricane can completely remove roof decking and gable ends. There are also stronger categories of hurricanes including Category 4 and Category 5.
