In terms of roofing materials, you’re guaranteed to have no shortage of options. After all, you can choose anything from asphalt, ceramic, slate or even a green roof. All of these materials can serve your home admirably and are guaranteed to be energy-efficient. However, despite the abundance of options at your disposal, there is one roof that you shouldn’t neglect considering, especially if your area faces extreme climates: metal roofs.
Here, Howard Roofing & Home Improvements discusses how metal roofs can mitigate the effects of climate extremes.
How Metal Roofs Help Lessen the Effects of Climate Extremes
According to the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA), the interest and demand for metal roofing system are gradually increasing in the states of Florida, Pennsylvania, California, New York, and North Carolina. As of now, all five states are currently facing extreme climate conditions such as hurricanes and ice dams on the east coast and wildfires on the west coast.
This is where metal roofing comes in as according to studies, homeowners are increasingly calling for a roofing contractor to install metal roofs in their homes for their beneficial qualities, such as a long lifespan, high fire-protection safety rating, and resistance against wind, hail and heavy snow. This makes metal roof one of the most durable and cost-effective roofing systems available on the market
While the demand for metal roofs is all well and good, the MRA can’t help but feel slightly concerned as their reports have found that the local demand may be outpacing the supply of metal roofing installers in a few regions throughout the country. These regions include California, New York and North Carolina in particular.
Since metal roofing demand is expected to rise nationwide, another concern that the MRA has is that there might be a lack of qualified contractors, which might make catering to the metal roofing needs of some homeowners difficult due to the shortage of manpower.
