Today’s photo shows a red roof found on Seabrook Island. This is another example of a metal roof. Actually you can see a metal roof on the house to the left as well.
The house shown also is an a common example to two single car garages on each side of the home. I think this design such that water can flow under the house during a hurricane.
Most homes are elevated and designed for storm surge to flow under the home without knocking the home off of its foundation.
Following is an article from FIMA about Coastal Foundations and Best Practices. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption A red roof found on Seabrook Island in South Carolina.
