Structural Engineering + Windstorm Engineering = Peace of Mind
Most people know if they live in a high wind zone, and there will be special construction considerations during the building process. But most may not fully realize exactly what value a windstorm engineer adds to a building.
Each building’s design must consider many factors, including location, size, height, roof slope, number of windows and doors, geometry, flood zone, and many more. Because so many variables affect the design, each building is designed based on its unique characteristics, emphasizing the importance of tailored expertise from a windstorm engineer.
Many people think their home’s construction follows generally the same process as their neighbor’s house. While there may be similarities, the scenario of two identically similar homes is very unlikely, unless the house is an exact duplicate.
