When nature takes its toll, the only thing you can do is be ready! Hurricane proofing of property should be a top priority, especially as hurricane season has arrived! Preparing a property for the storms ahead is something that should be done with meticulous care. It is important that nothing is left to chance and that all preparations are double checked for effectiveness.
Hurricane clips and ties are important components and play a vital role in hurricane proofing.
Hurricane clips and ties provide a durable connection between the roof truss or rafter and the wall of the building. They are available in various sizes depending on the durability required and of course the type and nature of the roofing to be secured. These components offer the type of wind resistance that will keep the roof and structure in tact during heavy winds. In hurricane force winds, often roofs are ripped from the building structure. Not only is this expensive to repair, but it also poses a serious threat of danger to properties and people in the nearby vicinity. The best quality clips and ties available on the market are made from stainless steel which means that they handle exposure to the elements without losing integrity and strength.
Simpson Strong-Tie’s range of Hurricane ties and straps are highly recommended for hurricane proofing. These are manufactured from grade 316 stainless steel and are purpose-designed to provide wind and seismic resistance for roof trusses, rafters and timber structures.
In addition to securing roofing for the potential upcoming storms, one can also install hurricane shutters on windows, get additional securing bolts for doors, clear the yard of any furniture and potential debris and also ensure that all gutters and downspouts are firmly secured and cleared of debris.
