What type of roof is best for tornado?
As long as the application is put on as it should, the roofing systems in Kansas are designed to withstand tornadoes. Any architectural shingle that we put on comes with a wind warranty of about 50 to 60 miles per hour. Cool fact: most people think that by putting more nails or screws into their roof when they do it themselves, their roof is going to stay on better during a storm, but that is not true; actually, you should do it the right way otherwise the roof decking will end up coming off with the roof when it blows off. So four roof fasteners per square foot should be put in to meet the manufacturer’s specifications.
