The Shape of Your Home

Home’s that have a square floor plan and a multipanel roof tend to hold up better against strong winds. Octagon or hexagon-shaped home floor plans, have even lower wind loads due to the extra support. Copyright @ Frazier Roofs & Gutters

Your Roof’s Overhangs Overhangs are vulnerable to being forced upward by strong gusts of wind and may lead to complete roof failure. Areas prone to hurricanes should ensure the length of overhangs are no greater than twenty inches.
