Construction Techniques to Protect Homes from High Wind Damage

This manual is designed to assist builders, architects and engineers in making the right decisions on construction in high wind areas. Every home is unique and there are no general recommendations that are universally applicable to all homes. This is not an exhaustive reference; users are encouraged to consult additional documents, especially those referenced at the end of this manual. If hazards other than wind threaten a particular site, the users are encouraged to seek references on how to construct buildings resistant to the local hazards.
