Wind Resistant Thatched Roof
Necker Island, BVI uses Bali thatch after the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma in 2017.

One month ago, Hurricane Dorian made landfall in the Bahamas. Dorian sustained wind speeds of 185 mph, becoming the strongest hurricane on record to hit the islands. The hurricane caused extensive flooding that damaged many homes and infrastructures.

For coastal communities, the social, economic, and physical impact caused by hurricanes are devastating. The damage sustained from a tropical storm can be extreme. And when the time comes to rebuild, how do you protect your infrastructure from future storms? Endureed has the materials to help you build a safer roof that can withstand the severe weather from tropical storms. Endureed thatch is designed with your safety in mind and can withstand severe weather conditions, including strong winds, to help you prepare for any tropical storm.

Protect Your Thatched Roof Against Hurricane Damage

Hurricanes expose your roof to many different risks, especially if it is made with natural thatch roofing materials. Strong winds can create stress points on a roof that can weaken over time. According to the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), most wind damage to a roof starts on the edge. Anywhere the roofing material is loose, wind can get below it and push it up, giving the wind more to grab onto next time. This type of wind starts small but grows over time through repeated exposure. Water damage from tropical storms can also lead to rot, decay, and deterioration.

Wind Rated thatched roof
Endureed products are wind rated up to 200 mph.

Because hurricane intensity is projected to increase as the climate warms, roofs in hurricane-prone areas are at risk for damage. Hurricane damage not only costs you time and money, but also jeopardizes your safety.
