Hurricane Nate offers us a reminder about the importance of durable roofing materials. Hurricane Nate made landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi River Saturday. Then, Hurricane Nate hit the Biloxi, Mississippi area early Sunday morning, still a Category 1 hurricane. Soon, it became Tropical Depression Nate, accompanied by strong rain and tornadoes.
In South Carolina, the Liberty Fire Department reported that several houses on Liberty Highway experienced extreme roof damage. Strong storms of any kind generally leave damage to roofs, especially when less durable material is used. Nate shows us the importance of durable roofing material.
