Should Your Roof Be Metal?

Not long ago, a devastating fire broke out in Lahaina. Among all the homes that were unfortunately reduced to ashes, there was one house that stayed intact. The news called it a heartening tale of resilience while the Colorado State Forest Service attached a seemingly valid reason to it.

Intended or not, the Millikin family had done up their roofing in a way that reduced their home’s ability to ignite. Millikin adds that they had got the five layers of asphalt removed from the roof. Back in 2022, they installed a new metal roof with air pockets to allow heat to dissipate. In addition, they removed all vegetation at the ground level along their house’s dripline and added a stone buffer. They admitted that these steps were taken to prevent termites and not fire.

Ensuring that your house is fire-proof is a priority when it comes to roofing. In this blog, we’ll explore the multifaceted benefits that metal roofers can add to your home’s roofing system.

How can metal improve your roofing system?

Metal roofs are exceptionally durable, and can last over 50 years. Let’s look at the numerous benefits metal roofing can do for you.

  • Metal Roofing stands the test of time and harsh weather – Metal roofs are an excellent choice for houses located in cities with strong winds and heavy rains. They are resistant to damage, reducing leakage and structural issues.
  • Reflects away solar heat – Metal roofs can reflect solar heat which can lead to sustaining a cooler environment indoors. Due to reduced heat absorption, the need to use air conditioners decreases, thereby working toward lower energy bills.
  • Environmentally friendly – Metal roofs are most often made from recycled material, which makes them environmentally friendly.
  • Lifetime longevity – Metal roofing can last for a lifetime which means that you don’t need to replace them. This is unlike the replacement needed for other types of roofs like flat roofs, etc.

The Miracle House is up and functional, and proves as a testament to its durability even in the harshest of calamities. Hiring the right metal roofers will ensure that your home can stand the test of time and extreme weather.
