What Makes Metal Roofs Unique?
From coast to coast, roofs made of alternative materials, such as metal, may be found. Metal roofs provide utility, and for many customers, metal roofs provide the utility they are looking for. Many factors weigh into this decision. Let’s dive into a few of the reasons why a customer would want or need a metal roof.
In environments with more extreme weather conditions, a metal roof proves optimal. A metal roof will easily withstand strong winds, driving rain, snow, hail, and extreme heat or cold. Metal roofs are highly fire-resistant, and highly incombustible. If a customer lives in an area prone to wildfires, a metal roof will dramatically diminish the chance of the roof catching on fire due to hot ashes or embers.
For customers who are interested in a more lightweight roof structure, metal roofs fit the bill. Metal shingles are easier to transport up and down the roof, and do not weigh unnecessarily on the structure of the house.
If energy efficiency is of importance, a metal roof is the natural choice. Energy efficient roofing materials are available, and metal roofs are also available in ‘cool roofing’ options, which allow for heat emissions to be released in high temperatures, and heat to be retained in cool temperatures. In addition, solar panels can easily be installed on a metal roof.
If you’re looking for a low-maintenance roof, metal is a solid choice. General upkeep includes looking for leaves and branches on your roof, and inspecting your roof after a strong storm.
In conclusion, for customers looking for utility, a metal roof may be the right choice. City Roofing Company is happy to go over these options with our customers and find a natural solution.
