In Response To: reroofing materials (Steve Landers)

Steve, You address this question to the wrong forum.

Building code requirements in Florida have changed greatly in the wake of major hurricanes in the 90s.

These particularly affect roof designs and how one can build them.

It is my understanding from what I read that scientific tests have proven roof pitches of between 4-6 in 12 inches are optimal to prevent a roof from blowing away in a 'cane.

The bottom line here is this:

Florida has adopted very specific building codes concerning the shape, pitch, materials, and techniques concerned with the construcion of roofs, that the ONLY accurate source of info pertaining to their construction is your local building code official.

Call him/her and get the real skinny on what applies to your area within you state.
