Euroshield Rubber Roof Survives Category 5 Hurricane Irma on the Island of St. Martin

Residence Adam & Eve – St. Martin (after hurricane Irma hit)

“We own a tourist residence on the island of St. Martin in the Caribbean. It is a 4 star guest house with hotel services (www.residence-adam-eve.com). In 2015 we decided to change our roof to Euroshield Rundle Slate (formerly EuroSlate). Our decision was influenced by strength, wind and impact resistance, insulation and looks. On September 4th 2017 we suffered the largest hurricane the earth has seen…Irma, which hit St. Martin as a Category 5 hurricane. We had sustained winds of 300km/hr with gusts to 360km/hr. You can see the damage to dwellings on YouTube. At the end of the hurricane we noticed our neighbour to the left, his roof flew away, house destroyed and will need to be rebuilt. Our neighbour to the right…his roof is on the road. For us…our Euroshield roof lost only a few ridge and hip caps…the roof body was not impacted. After a big cleaning we were able to open up to customers 5 days later. 80% of hotels will not be able to reopen for up to a year. We are thoroughly convinced that if we did not have Euroshield roofing our hotel would have been like everyone else…very badly damaged”. I declare this testimony sincere and genuine. I agree to receive emails (caroline@residence-adam-eve.com) from people who are interested in my experience and Euroshield tiles.”
