Over the past few years, Florida has seen record numbers of people migrating to the famous “Sunshine State.” This is no surprise, as Florida is a lovely place to call home, boasting amazing weather and tropical beaches year round. However, one major drawback to consider when moving to Florida is hurricanes. Unfortunately, this nightmare became a reality for new Floridians on the west coast of Florida when Hurricane Ian devastated Naples, Fort Myers, and much of the surrounding areas.
Since the storm, the Boynton Beach Roofing Experts have been getting many calls from homeowners concerned their roofs are not up to the task of taking on a hurricane as powerful as Ian was. Homeowners with shingle roofs are considering upgrading to either tile roofing or metal roofing, which offer a significant advantage over hurricane-force winds over shingle roofing. After seeing what can happen when a hurricane rips through, it’s no surprise people are being more proactive in southern Florida. The footage and aftermath of what happened has left people feeling quite scared of when a hurricane hits down here.
Lucas, a representative of The Boynton Beach Roofing Experts, said, “It’s been quite some time since Florida has taken a direct hit from a hurricane as strong as Ian. Since the last big storm, many people have moved down to Florida, people that have never seen what a hurricane can do. The reality is metal and tile roofing do offer better protection when it comes to hurricanes, so I can understand why so many people are making this move. We are even getting calls from people with decent roofs that are not old; they want to ensure they have maximum protection.”
