Metal roofing is known for its incredible strength and temperature control. Not only does it last over 40 years with the proper care and maintenance, but it’s also excellent for winter weather. Ice sickles and ice dams are less likely to gather on the roof because of the metal’s smooth finish and customary snow guards; snow and freezing rain slide right off. Plus, there’s no need to worry about the dangers of snow load, which is when there’s an overwhelming amount of weight on your roof from accumulating snow.
Additionally, although metal is highly durable, it’s relatively lightweight. Its reflective surface gives modernized curb appeal and provides unwavering protection no matter the weather. However, if you choose metal roofing, expect to pay more. But, on the bright side, longevity and strength are worth every penny in the long run.
