Roofs' ability to withstand hurricane damage can be tripled inexpensively with a quarter-inch bead of wood adhesive, according to FLASH. The group also says that hurricane straps and clips cost just 50 cents each, and a peel-and-stick water barrier can be added during roof replacement for about $750.
