Is there any way to make barrel roof tile less susceptible to hurricane wind "blow-off"? The roof tiles are screwed down with 2 screws on the top part of each tile. But with big winds, I think the wind could get under the tile, and lift them. Is there a way to further glue the roof tiles together, and make the system one integrated "tile"? Squirt glue under each tile, or use clear glue to glue the end of one roof tile to the top of the one below it? We sure need the protection in Florida. Thanks for the help.

I can give you this advice as an expierianced roofer:

Makeing your tiles one soldered unit leaves them succeptable to expantion and contraction damage.

Altering the application will effect any warranty you have by the manufacturer/contractor.

It is not the windspeed that removes roffing but the lift generated by the flow over the plane. ( foil it )!!

A solid joint roofing system will alow the lift to remove your roof ,sheething,rafters and all if it is not fastened to the sidewall framming.

Suggestion: Try putting a good sized steel washer on top of the screw holes.
