If a roof does not meet TWIA requirements, the association will not insure it.
Pearland, Texas (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
The Lone Star state is prone to heavy, destructive storms, and Harris County—where the Houston metropolitan area is located—is no different. To protect the homes of residents from such atmospheric disturbances, Pearland-based Guardian Roof Systems recently announced that they provide roof construction which meet the requirements for Texas Windstorm certification.
Roofing companies get Windstorm certificates when their products meet the specifications of the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI). The TDI inspects and approves roofs according to state law. That law—which is called House Bill 2012 and was passed by the 70th Texas Legislature—sets certain requirements for houses along the Texas Gulf Coast to receive insurance for windstorms via the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA). This law concerns all new installations, additions, and repairs that started on or after January 1, 1988. If a roof does not meet TWIA requirements, the association will not insure it. So, Guardian Roof Systems constructs roofs that conform to the specifications of the TWIA. The company's seasoned crew can install roofs built to handle any storm or hurricane that visits the state from year to year.
Moreover, Guardian Roof Systems can send qualified inspectors to inspect the existing roof and determine its eligibility for Windstorm certification. If the roof doesn't meet TWIA specifications, the company can send roof constructors to build one that does. Only then would Guardian Roof Systems award the client with a TDI Windstorm Certificate. In the event of storm or hurricane damage, the company would work with the insurance provider, thus making the entire ordeal much easier to handle.
Each roof that is installed automatically comes with a one-year no-leak warranty. Customers who have a problem with their roofs can call Guardian Roof Systems, so that the company can send their technicians to fix the problem within 24 hours. Additionally, Guardian Roof Systems is certified to provide CertainTeed shingle roofs, so customers can choose extended warranties that go for 10, 15 or 25 years.
