Tremco Roofs Remain Intact Through Florida’s Hurricanes

Roofs that Tremco’s Roofing and Building Maintenance Division installed and maintain in Florida showed remarkable strength during the four hurricanes that tore through the state this year. There have been no reports of wind uplift damage and no warranty claims.

Almost 300 such roofs cover an area of over 6.1 million square feet from the Florida Keys through the Panhandle for customers in education; financial services; healthcare; hospitality; local, state and Federal government; manufacturing and other industries.

"The fact that every Tremco roof we support in Florida stayed in place despite winds often exceeding 100 mph is a direct reflection of our quality products and quality installation," said Joe Lyons, Tremco’s Vice President of Sales for the Eastern United States. "We design our roofing systems to resist hurricane force winds, not just gale force. FM Global and Underwriters Laboratories rigorously test Tremco roofing systems to validate their high level of wind uplift resistance. But installation is critical; roofing systems must be properly installed to retain their integrity. Our Certified Contractor Program ensures this by allowing only highly trained, experienced, professional roofing contractors meeting National Roofing Contractors Association and Tremco requirements to handle our roofing applications. You can really see the results of our approach in the cases where the wind blew the entire roofing system off a building that is next to a Tremco customer, while the Tremco roof remained intact."

Lyons continued, "Of course, not all of our roofs escaped the hurricanes unscathed. Airborne debris caused the only real damage; our service teams were standing ready, ensuring our customers a fast response in repairing the damage. The most important thing for our customers was that their roofs stayed on and stayed watertight, no matter how severely the wind hit them. This saved the facilities’ interiors from the devastating water damage that shut down many businesses."

In Florida and elsewhere, Tremco offers a variety of warranties on cold-applied and hot-applied built up roofs, cold-applied and hot-applied modified bitumen, and single ply roofing systems.

Tremco services Florida from offices in the Destin, Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando and Tampa/St. Petersburg areas. Headquartered in Beachwood, Ohio, Tremco Incorporated and Weatherproofing Technologies, Inc., ISO 9001:2000 certified companies, provide Roofing and Weatherproofing Peace of Mind to educational, healthcare, government and industrial customers. In business since 1928, Tremco joined the RPM International, Inc. family of companies in 1997.
