Protect your home from weather events
According to the Insurance Information Institute, insured losses due to natural disasters in the United States in 2014 totaled $15.3 billion. Between 2000 and 2013, the average loss was $29 billion.
Fortunately, there are building methods and materials to help prevent damage from severe weather.
Your climate will determine the approach your builder takes, but materials should be able to withstand wind and water.
Floods and heavy rain
- Closed-cell spray foam is the FEMA-approved insulation material for use in flood-prone regions
- It can withstand 72 hours of water immersion with no structural damage
High winds and hurricanes
- To prevent wind uplift on your roof, builders can spray foam insulation on the underside of the roof. In this application, it essentially glues all the sheathing sections together, making it stronger and greatly reducing the risk of wind damage and water intrusion
- Spray foam roofing systems are resistant to damage from hail and debris
- HP+ Wall and advanced framing provide increased structural strength to distribute load from roof through walls and foundations
- Spray foam roofing material also strengthens the roof, helping to reduce damage from heavy snow
