In Oklahoma, there are many different popular roofing materials available. From rubber to wood to solar cell, homeowners have numerous options to choose from. However, metal roofing remains on top of the list, according to figures from ROBBINS ROOFING.
Less risk for snow and hail damage
Although heavy snow events in Tulsa only occur a few times in a period of two years, the city still has a peak season, which takes place between January and February of each year. This means that homeowners can still face damage to their roofs caused by snow.
And while manufacturers design their roofing products to withstand snow and hail, not all have the same level of durability against these types of inclement weather as that of metal. Metal roofs boast of a durability that allows them to stay in fine shape even after heavy snowfalls. The slick and low-friction surfaces of these roofing systems enable them to shed snow in an extremely fast pace. This then translates to less risks of heavy snow build-up.
Comfort in the thought of having a fire-proof roof
In states like Oklahoma where house fires and wildfires are not rare, having a roof that possesses high fire resistance can make a huge difference.
Of the many different roofing materials, metal has one of the greatest fire-proof qualities. It does not burn, making it an excellent choice for homes that have chimneys and use stovepipes. With metal roofing on your Tulsa home, you can enjoy a higher level of peace of mind knowing this fact, especially when you live far from a fire department.
Metal roofs, when compared with your other choices in roofing materials, have a slightly higher price range. However, you should look at it as a long-term investment, rather than a more expensive option.
Just take into consideration the fact that these roofing systems can outlive most of the other types of materials as well as their higher snow and fire damage resistance, and you will realize that they truly deliver a smart and long-term investment.
