Roofing Wind Damage

Interlock® Metal Roofs can stand up to a Class 2 Hurricane

Our roofs have been tested and rated to withstand winds up to 110mph which will rate a hurricane at Class 2.

During the wind resistance test in this video, an airplane turbine was used to simulate 110 mph winds. A deck with Interlock® Metal Slate roofing was exposed to extreme winds and water, recreating the effects of driving rain from multiple directions.

Our unique 4-way interlocking design of our roofs stand up to the most extreme elements, including Class 2 hurricanes, by actually locking each shingle on all four sides.

Interlock® Lifetime Roofing Systems invest in research and development to create the finest metal roofs. We have installed roofs in all climate zones with thousands of satisfied customers.

In January 2000 we experienced a severe windstorm with gusts to 120 miles per hour. Our shingle roof was destroyed. It looked as if it had been hit with a giant shotgun blast. In some spots the roof had been ripped away down to the plywood. Our neighbor had a new Interlock roof installed in 1997. The windstorm that had destroyed our roof did not damage his roof in any way; not a single shingle was missing. Since installation of our Interlock roof, the snow load on the frame of our house has dropped 95%. We have been through 100+ MPH wind storms with zero wind damage. I would highly recommend this roof to anyone!

We have been enjoying the roof through the winter winds and rain and hail of the Pacific Northwest. Everyone asks if it is noisy and tinny when it rains. We reply “of course not! “ It is even quieter than the comp roof we just replaced. Since installation of our Interlock roof, the snow load on the frame of our house has dropped 95%. We have been through 100+ MPH wind storms with zero wind damage. I would highly recommend this roof to anyone!
