Although hurricane season is months away, it’s never too early to think about protecting your roof when you live in a hurricane-prone area. Storm-Proof Roof offers an effective, simple and affordable solution. Upon being alerted of a possible hurricane, homeowners roll out the modules around the edge of the roof and fill with water from a garden hose. The weighted modules add 100 pounds per linear foot to the roof and, according to research at Florida International University, the system “can reduce significant damage on the average of 150 perfect.” The modules are easily installed and removed. Each 13-foot module costs $245. Just pennies when compared to replacing a roof. This product is worth checking out if you are worried about the integrity of your roof.
