Can your roof stand the yearly Santa Ana winds in California?
Living in Southern California, you know of the weather phenomenon called the Santa Ana Winds, which typically occurs during the fall season. But did you also know that strong winds blast through the area during springtime? Although not as destructive as those in the Great Plains, the wind gusts here in the West Coast can still be pretty rough. Repeated high wind blows could eventually cause severe damages to the home’s roof. So, before you get started on any roof project, get to know some of the most common roofing materials and how they hold up.
Los Angeles asphalt shingle roofing in Orange County
This widely popular roofing material is made of fiberglass core that is layered with asphalt, granite, and ceramic coating. They’re light, easy to install, come in a huge array of styles, and relatively affordable to fit any budget. However, asphalt shingles wear out fast and it’s not uncommon for chips falling off halfway through the warranty, which is typically 30-50 years. Because of its composition and deterioration rate, asphalt roofing is vulnerable to high winds.
