Manufacturer guidelines combined with adopting the overkill “Dade County Roofing Code” had everything to do with the survival of this home. These consist of the use of heavier and increased number of special screws, gauge/thickness of the metal panel, existence of reinforcing striations on the metal panel, type of underlay, and few other techniques special to only a few companies adopting the Dade County Approvals. At ANC Roofing Inc we adopted and still use the Dade County Code after Hurricane Wilma by helping with roof replacement of over 400 homes between 2005 and 2008.
