It will always be a harrowing experience if your house has just weathered a nasty storm and emerged more or less intact. However, there’s a possibility that other structures in the community may not have been as fortunate. A story posted by the British Broadcasting Corp elaborates:
“A school will be closed for repairs after roof tiles blew off in high winds.
Police closed Trent Road and Oaston Road, next to Nuneaton’s Etone Community School and Technology College, after some of the tiles landed in the road.
The school said nobody was hurt and children were able to continue “as normal” with lessons.
They said the school was not evacuated but would shut on Friday for repairs.
Head teacher Colin Turner said: “The contractors are on site and are seeking to make repairs but they have to wait until the wind drops below 30mph.”
What happened over in England can be relevant to Sarasota, Florida, which is no stranger to heavy storms and other kinds of bad weather, given its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. Old-timers may remember how the 1921 storm’s aftermath became a chance to redevelop the place into a fine resort location but shudder at recalling the fury of Hurricane Donna in 1960. Although hurricanes that grazed Sarasota have wrought havoc to some degree, it is no excuse to lay back. If a nasty storm visited your community, you need to call in experts who offer roof repair in Sarasota, FL like those from Roofing By Curry.
A contractor you chose for the repair job will study the roof for the overall scope of the damage once the authorities announce the all-clear. The severity of the storm can reveal potential weaknesses in the roof.
In the case of the Etone school, initial reports said the tiles that flew off came from one of its senior high school sections, which were battered by gale-force winds at full blast. School headmaster Colin Turner lamented, however, that their preferred contractor could not get to work unless the winds went below 30 miles per hour.
Ultimately, it’s a great idea to seek tile roof repair in Sarasota. It need not be a tedious exercise when you have a contractor like Roofing By Curry doing it for you.
