Hurricane season began on June 1st and runs through November 30th. On August 9, 2018, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) revised its predictions for this year’s season, forecasting a below-average hurricane season with 9–13 named storms, 4–7 hurricanes, and 0–2 major hurricanes for the remainder of 2018. Regardless of this less dire prediction, it is still important to prepare for the possibility of a severe storm, keeping your roof in mind. Buildings located in coastal states are potentially more vulnerable in these storms, therefore it’s wise to be proactive and schedule an inspection to get your roof ready for any future storm(s).
Hurricane season is officially on record from June 1st - November 30th each year.
Weeks and days before a storm or hurricane, schedule a roof inspection for ways to better prepare your roof.

Hurricane season is from June 1 - November 30, 2014
CentiMark (CM): You’ve had some experience with hurricanes, haven’t you? David Tredinnick
(DT): Yes, in my 14 years at CentiMark, I have worked on hurricanes Charlie, Jean, Francis and Wilma.
CM: Can any roof stand up to a hurricane?
DT: No roof is 100% immune to the damages of microbursts, heavy winds or hurricanes. Proper construction and preventative maintenance on the roof system does help with performance. Even roofs that are properly designed and installed can fail in a weather disaster because of flying debris.
