Paragon Roof Systems has reached another milestone in the composite roofing market. Our complete line of composite roofing products is now approved by the Texas Department of Insurance for wind rating.
To the best of our knowledge, Paragon’s Natura High Barrel and Natura Mission tile are the first composite barrel tiles to be approved by TDI for this category. This achievement represents a huge advancement in synthetic roofing products, and gives residential builders and homeowners a great alternative to clay and concrete tile when evaluating roofing product options.
Roofing Designed to Withstand Winds
Regardless of where a building is located or its materials of construction, there are minimum standards of forces it should be able to withstand, such as wind uplift forces on its roof. Safe and acceptable roof design depends on a region’s “design wind speed”, which is a calculation of wind speed, structure height, and other factors. A roof must be strong enough to withstand the maximum uplift design forces as determined for the structure. As the minimum uplift forces increase in regions with stronger winds, roofs must be more durable and stable.
Achieving TDI Wind Rating Approval
Achieving the approval of the Texas Department of Insurance requires a passing performance under very stringent testing, which explains why other composite barrel tile products have not made the list. The TDI standard is highly regarded by contractors and homeowners in making a determination of what roofing product to use for their homes.
The TDI wind rating gives homeowners a sense of security not offered by other composite tile companies.
