Metal roofing can be a great solution to all the storms we see here in Kansas. It’s a new trend in the roofing world, moving toward more metal roofing options. You can make your home more beautiful with the myriad choices of colors and styles to enhance the look of your home and potentially be less affected by some of our storm activity. There are a number of reasons why people choose metal roofing in Wichita and surrounding areas for their homes.
You will see that metal roofing manufacturers often provide a 30-year warranty on the panels because metal roofs typically last twice as long as a typical standard roof. This is why so many government buildings, schools and commercial buildings have been built with metal roofing.
A metal roof will withstand sun, wind and hail much better that an asphalt roof. It can withstand winds up to 140 miles per hour. As a result of the superior performance of metal roofs they meet the UL 2218 standard and provides for up to a 35 percent reduction in insurance costs in some states.
A metal roof that is light in color will reflect sunlight, resulting in reduce air conditioning costs. We get plenty of heat here in Kansas during our long growing season. In Florida, it has been found to lower these cost by as much as 25% or more.
GREEN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Much of a metal roof can be recycled, so the waste put into the landfills can be reduced greatly. Currently there is 20 billion pounds of composite shingle waste put in landfills. In addition, it can reduce the removal and waste of the old roofing products because it can be installed over an asphalt roof in some cases.
