How Metal Roofs are Weather-Resistant

Metal roofs have been around for a long time, but are recently surging in popularity. They are surprisingly durable and cost-effective when you consider their longer life spans. Excelling at withstanding a wide range of weather conditions, they are an attractive addition to any home. If you are in the market for a new roof, you can trust Alpine Roofing Construction to install a quality metal roof that is virtually weather-resistant.

Made for Dallas Weather

Every Dallas roofer knows that local weather is hard on roofs. The sun beating down on an asphalt shingle roof can destroy it, and the heat that builds up inside your attic also makes it more difficult to cool the home. Additionally, spring storms in the Dallas-Fort Worth area bring with them torrential downpours, hurricane-force winds, and enough hail to destroy a roof that isn’t properly prepared.

Metal roofs are perfect for withstanding all of these natural hazards:

  • Metal does not degrade and become brittle in the sun the way other materials do.
  • Metal reflects the heat to keep it out of your house, so your home becomes easier to cool and more energy efficient.
  • Metals is more dense and is heavier than other roofing materials, providing your home with more protection from storms.

Fewer Seams for Superior Rain Protection

Metal roof systems feature long pieces that are tightly attached. There are fewer seams in a metal roof, meaning there are fewer opportunities for water to intrude and find a way into your home. Shedding both water and snow, it does not absorb moisture like clay or even concrete. This makes it one of the best options to withstand the powerful storms that come through our area.

Prepared for the Wind

Tightly attached to the house, metal is not prone to being lifted off by high winds and blown away. Metal system have been tested extensively and shown to withstand winds up to 200 mph.
