Happy December! As it continues to get cooler (Have you seen the forecast for this weekend? Temperatures will be in the 20’s!), your heating bills will continue to rise. If you are interested in making a larger investment to save more down the line, consider metal roofing; it offers several winter-specific benefits that traditional roofing materials do not.
Even if your home is well-insulated, a metal roof may increase its heat-retention. Renovating your roof in the winter may seem crazy, but due to its light weight, metal roofing can be installed over shingle roofing. You will always have a roof over your head during the installation.
It seems that we must constantly maintain certain aspects of our home during the winter: shoveling driveways, scraping windshields, and the ever-so-complicated roof snow removal. As big of a pain as they are, these tasks must be done; a roof may bucks under too much weight of snow, and collapse. The clearing process can also be dangerous. The slippery surface of a metal roof takes away this challenge. There is little ground for the snow to build on, and if the roof is angled, snow will slide off without any effort on your part.
Metal roofing offers also offers a wide array of colors and shapes, so you can find a match for your home and your style. If you are interested in a metal roof for your home or want to find out more, contact Showalter Roofing Service today! We hope you all have a great winter!
