Homes Built to Stricter Standards Fared Better in Storm
Florida owners benefit from homes built to more-stringent codes: ‘Tree branches bounced off of our roof. But the house is fine.”
When Hurricane Wilma pummeled Florida in 2005, it nearly ripped the roof from Stephany and Michael Carr’s house in Naples, which was built before a 2002 building code took effect statewide.
After the storm, the couple retrofitted their house to comply with the new code. They added a standing seam metal roof with continuous panels connected by strong fasteners. And they invested in hurricane impact-resistant windows and doors.
The upgraded home withstood Hurricane Irma without issue.
