Common Questions on Wind Mitigation

What Shape is my Roof?

Take a look at the image on the right (below if on mobile), this would be a HIP roof. HIP roof planes come down rather than create a peak (a gable). To classify as a HIP roof, your “gables” should be no more than 10% of your total roof perimeter.

What is a SWR?

A SWR (Secondary Water Resistance) is a peel and stick roof underlayment that self-adheres to the roof decking. The self-adhering feature means there are no nails during the install. Regular roof underlayments are made out of felt paper and must be nailed down, which create more holes.
