5 Tornadoes

THE PROBLEM:  Tornadoes are hurricanes on steroids, some having wiped out houses clean to the slab. However it was found by forensic experts that often these houses had terribly bad or missing tie-down techniques, in some cases sill plates simply nailed to the concrete. It gets a lot worst.   THE SOLUTION: Stop using thousands of nails, staples and screws. We never do that, relying on sturdy bolts for hurricanes and full-lenght rods for tornadoes. Keep the little stuff for your daughter's doll house. First and foremost, TEST FOR IMPACT RESISTANCE. We do that too. See TEST LAB.
