Metal Roofers: The Best Winter Roofing

Up north the winters can be brutal on roofs. With an immense amount of snow build-up, it’s important to have the right roofing. Our team of metal roofers at A1 Home Improvement have just the solution. that can help to minimize damages, heat loss, and maintenance. Our team is the leading expert when it comes to metal roof installation.

 

Here are just a few reasons why you should consider metal roof installation this winter.

 

 

Save Time Shoveling

Winter snow and ice accumulation are responsible for causing the majority of roof damage in the winter. With traditional roofs, snow and ice accumulate and can weigh down parts of the roof. This can cause leaking as the snow melts and refreezes. And while most roofs allow some amount of accumulation, metal roofs allow the least. Made with a slippery design, the snow slides off of the roof, cutting back on excess weight. Not only will this save you from having to climb up on your roof to remove ice dams and feet of snow, but it also minimizes the risk of damage. 

 

 

Higher Energy Efficiency

During the winter months, every little bit of heat is valuable. Oftentimes, when it comes to traditional roofing options, heat can escape through the roof. This occurs as the heat rises to the attic. However, metal roofs have one of the highest energy efficiencies of any other roofing type. Due to the reflective nature of metal roofs, when the heat rises, instead of escaping it is reflected into your home. The barrier that is created by the roofs keeps both heat and cold air in the summer, so that your home is always at the optimal temperature. This saves you immense amounts of money when it comes to your heating bill. 

 

 

Faster Installation

As opposed to shingles, metal roofs offer more durability at a lighter weight. Due to their extremely light design, metal roofs require far less reinforcement during the installation process. For example, shingles, although still incredibly effective, are installed in small pieces that overlap. Each shingle is individually attached and reinforced along the roof. However, metal roofs are installed in large, light sheets of metal making the installation far more simple. Don’t be fooled by their quick installation and lightweight design. Metal roofs offer a stronger more durable roof option, able to withstand the test of Connecticut winters!
