Lately, you may have heard the terms “resilient” or “resiliency” being thrown around more and more when it comes to buildings and construction. A structure is considered resilient when it can perform its basic functions and remain habitable even after suffering from extreme weather events. Here the three factors that create resilience when it comes to your roof.
1. Wind Resistance
For obvious reasons, a good roofing system should be able to withstand strong winds. In regions where hurricanes and tornadoes are common, this is doubly important. While building codes have adapted over time to factor in the roof’s design to make it more resilient to wind, having high-grade roofing materials provide better protection against blow-offs and other wind damage.
2. Moisture Resistance
A highly resilient roof should be able to keep water out of the interior of your home even after a severe storm. After all, one of the roof’s primary functions is to keep its occupants dry. It should also prevent water from seeping into the internal components of your roofing system and wreaking havoc there. Having a resilient roof prevents costly storm damage repair services.
3. Impact Resistance
In states where hailstorms are common like Texas, which is located in an area in the United States known as hail alley, it is important that your roof is resistant to impacts. It is also not uncommon for strong winds to carry large debris, such as rocks, twigs and man-made objects, and cause them to slam onto your roof. A roof with a high resilience to impacts will last much longer and require less repair.
