With its extreme durability and protection against the elements, a metal roof can be the best protection against weather an Oklahoma homeowner could ever ask for! Typically, metal roofs have been associated with commercial buildings; however, more homeowners than ever are discovering that metal can be a vastly superior material to the usual asphalt shingles that are on most roofs.
A big part of this surge in popularity is that metal is available in a greater variety of styles and colors than ever before. In fact, metal roofing can now be made to emulate traditional roofing materials such as shingles, shake, and slate.
An added bonus of replacing your composite roof with metal roofing is that fact that many companies offer deep discounts on homeowner's insurance premiums for installing a metal roof.
Metal roofing is well known for the savings they provide with energy bills. Metal produces a low thermal mass so the heat from the sun is not absorbed into the metal of the roof, which prevents the heat from being transmitted into your home and reducing the cost of air conditioning. A metal roof that is painted or has a granular coating will reflect the solar energy and cool the home. In climates such as Oklahoma where the weather can be drastically hot a metal roof can help reduce your energy bills by as much as 40 percent.
Replacing a roof with shingles is a tedious, time consuming task, but when you install metal roofing it will last longer and require less maintenance. A metal roof is very durable and holds up exceptionally well in extreme weather conditions, including high winds and hail. Rust is a common concern for people considering a metal roof; however, the metal is protected with a protective coating that protects it against rust.
Choosing a roofing company can be tricky. So-called "Storm Chasers" will show up in your neighborhood after a tornado or other storm. The problem with storm chasers is that they follow the storms and don't stay in town; if you ever have an issue with your roof, you're on your own.
