There are many ways people can keep their roofs from flying off their houses. It all depends on who is doing the job. For instance, if you hire a Topeka roofer they might suggest sturdier understructure for the roof. That usually means replacing any old wooden elements with metal ones and making sure that the roof is firmly held in place. Some will find that usually means investing a lot in new hardware, but it is all worth it in order to keep your roof in its place and to make sure that nothing falls off of it.
Another solution Topeka, KS roofing companies suggest to keeping a roof in its place is to make sure that everything on it is secured before storm season starts. This can be done to any kind of roof, but especially applies to membrane ones. That’s because if a membrane is loose around the edges, not only will the whole thing be sooner or later ripped off the roof, but the damage it will do to the understructure can be quite massive. Also, shingles need to be nailed into place, and even an extra round of nails is advised, and loose ones have to be replaced as soon as they are noticed.
