Texas Windstorm Insurance Requirements
Texas windstorm insurance companies and organizations, such as the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association, as well as the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), have special requirements for roof repairs after a storm. These requirements ensure that the materials are extra strong and installed properly to decrease the risk of your roof being severely damaged in the next big windstorm. Dimensional Roofing and Diagnostics understands these requirements and we are prepared to meet all your that your Texas windstorm insurance company demands.
According to the TDI, if a roof is going to pass a Texas windstorm insurance inspection, it must be able to withstand winds up to 110 mph. If your home is in the coastal region of Texas, it might be required to withstand up to 128 mph. If your roof is constructed from asphalt shingles, the roofing fasteners should be made from stainless steel or galvanized steel and should be driven in until they are flush with the roof, but no deeper. If you must replace the roof decking, the new material installed should be plywood installed in sheets, not boards. Once the repairs are completed, the roof must meet the International Building Code or International Residential Code requirements in order to receive a certificate of compliance with Texas Windstorm Insurance requirements.
