Living in the Midwest means we experience some extreme weather conditions. This past summer had days of temperatures around 100 and this winter will likely bring negative wind chills. Metal roofing can help better protect your home when these weather conditions hit.
Many homeowners today are choosing metal roofing because of weather conditions. The Metal Roofing Alliance states that metal roofing can withstand decades of abuse from extreme weather like high winds, heavy snow, hail storms, and more. These roofs even have a 140-mph wind rating. Metal roofs perform great with heavy snow too. These roofs reduce snow build-up and therefore can completely eliminate ice dams.
In addition to these weather conditions, metal roofs last significantly longer than a traditional asphalt roof. According to the Metal Roofing Magazine, a metal roof can last 40 to 60 years and even longer. Compared to an asphalt roof which needs replacement between 15-20 years, that is very impressive.
Although a metal roof will cost more than an asphalt roof, the investment has great benefits for your home. It helps protect your home during many weather conditions and will last significantly longer than a traditional asphalt roof.
