Storm Proofing

Here’s an eye-opening statistic: 43 percent of U.S. homeowners live in hurricane-prone coastal areas. In Florida alone, 800,000 homes are potentially at risk from hurricane damage. One more interesting statistic: 50 percent of damage claims filed after a hurricane result from catastrophic roof failure caused by heavy winds.


The Storm Proof Roof System, from TriCord Hurricane Products, is designed to help prevent storm damage to a home. The temporary system adds weight to the edges of a roof — up to 30 pounds per foot — to make it more difficult for heavy winds to pop off vulnerable sections. The system consists of nylon-reinforced plastic modules placed around the perimeter of a roof prior to a storm or hurricane. Once filled with water using a garden hose, the modules significantly increase the home’s resistance to hurricane-force winds.

The system has been subjected to numerous tests at the International Hurricane Research Center at Florida International University in Miami and at The Wind Load Test Facility at Clemson University. The modules can be positioned on the roof and filled in about 3 to 4 hours, and rolled up and stored when not in use. The cost of a system for an average-sized 1,800-square-foot roof is about $1,200 to $1,800. For more information: www.stormproofroof.net or 800-738-1200.


Windows and doors are also vulnerable to hurricane-force winds. Storm-A-Rest storm curtains, from North Carolina-based John Boyle & Co., attach easily to the outside of windows and doors, providing protection from wind-driven rain and debris. Made with Honeywell’s high-strength Spectra fiber, which is up to 15 times stronger than steel by weight, according to Honeywell, the curtains are extremely lightweight, yet meet or exceed requirements for winds in excess of 155 miles per hour and for impact from large wind-borne projectiles.

The curtains roll down quickly in the event of a storm and roll up afterwards for easy storage. In addition, they allow 80 percent of sunlight through — an important benefit in the event of a power outage. For more information: www.getstormarest.com .
