Worked out great! Here is a great story:
In October 2008, I lost part of my roof to hurricane Omar, a Cat 1 Storm. The house sits on a hilltop with 360 degrees of views. It was exposed to high gusts from all sides.
Years later, in 2017, a renovation and addition to the home was mostly done. The FMRP roof was installed in August. Then on September 6, 2017 hurricane Irma a cat 5 hurricane with wind gusts of 180 mph made landfall in st. Thomas. My home in St. Croix, which is 40 miles away from St. Thomas experienced major hurricane force winds and rain. Luckily, No damage. I was very happy about that! But my joy did not last very long, because 12 days later Hurricane Maria another cat 5 storm made landfall on St. Croix. This time my island did not fare so well. Devastation across the immense. 85 percent of the structures we damaged or destroyed, including the hospital, 6 public schools, most public housing, even the shelters were damaged. Power was knocked out for more than three months. GOD BLESS FEMA!
My friend, as the storm approached, I took my family to the downstairs apartment which is the most secure part of the house. Through out the night, we could hear the roaring and howling of the winds, sounded like 100 airliners at full blast in the total darkness of the night. Finally, morning came and the worst has passed. I walked out in the to assess the damage, I was relieved to see the roof was intact! 100% no damage.
