Climate Change Contributing To Need For Better Roof Materials


Warm oceans make for more hurricanes and more risk. If you haven’t made the switch to stronger roof material, now is time to. 

Parts of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans hit record highs for warmth in March. These warm temperatures could bring some insight about the ferocity of hurricane season, the eruption of wildfires, and whether the heat and severe thunderstorms will continue. 

If the Gulf’s water continues to stay warm, it could create another Harvey like storm as seen in 2017. The ocean also plays a role in how wildfires develop. The warm areas of the ocean by Australia and the Amazon pulled rain away from the land. This causes drier conditions, and worse case, a drought. 

If you want a roof that can withstand all of the above, you need Tilcor.
