Damage to roofing systems due to high winds is known as uplift. It is when wind gets underneath and lifts the roof up, or up and off. Not all metal roofing systems are installed to protect against uplift, and none of the other available roofing materials are.
A properly installed metal roofing system is designed to prevent uplift. Its concealed fastener and interlocking systems do not allow wind to get in underneath the panel or shingle. Metal roofing will withstand tornado like winds thru out its service life, most other roofing materials will not.
