If you live in an area where there is heavy precipitation or the potential for high winds, then metal roofing or siding are the best option for protection. Homeowners can feel confident that their metal roofing and siding is fire-resistant, weather-resistant, hail resistant, and wind resistant. In contrast, composite roofs made up of asphalt or asbestos shingles, wood, or laminate, will provide some moderate fire resistance but also contribute to the fire once they begin to burn.
Metal Roofing for Protection
Metal is a great material because it is fire and weather resistant. When you are living in an area that has high winds, hail, or the possibility of wildfires nearby, metal roofing can help to protect your home against these natural disasters.
The fire resistance of a structure is crucial to consider when evaluating its durability. This is especially true if the area is vulnerable to wildfires or has high fire safety standards. Due to its high rating, metal roofing and siding can help protect your home or business from inclement weather as well as provide valuable insurance discounts! Metal roofs are typically discounted by insurance companies, lowering operational expenses for years to come.
Metal Roofing Benefits
The lightweight, non-combustible material of a metal roofing system is durable, won’t corrode, and requires minimal upkeep. It comes in a range of colors and panel shapes. Most importantly, most types of metal roofing are heat reflective and comply with Energy Star efficiency requirements and standards.
