North Texas, including the panhandle, is positioned within the region known as “Tornado Alley.” Powerful storms frequently occur in the area, bringing the threat of high winds and tornado activity. While San Antonio is not directly within the Tornado Alley region, powerful storms still frequently occur in the area, bringing the threat of high winds, hail, and occasional tornado activity. These intense winds can wreak havoc on vulnerable roofs, causing major uplift damage or even full removal of the roof deck. However, modern engineered metal roofing systems can be specifically designed and installed to withstand very high wind uplift forces. The interlocking panels are tightly overlapped and the metal-to-metal clip connections create a unified barrier against the winds. The entire roof is secured as a cohesive system and wind forces are distributed across the roof rather than lifting a single area. Metal roofing manufacturers test products to meet wind resistance standards like UL 580 and FM 4471. Homeowners can have peace of mind knowing their metal roof provides excellent wind performance that far surpasses traditional asphalt shingles in San Antonio’s stormy climate.
