Light Weight, Strong, Metal Roofing Houston
Metal Roofing does not absorb moisture and therefore have excellent compatibility with snow and ice. The super strong, stone-coated steel panels have been tested at more than 224 lbs per sq before panel deformation occurs. Freeze/thaw cycles do not cause the panels to raise because of their interlocking design and in-shear fastening system.
Strength And Safety In Earthquake-Prone Areas!
Metal Roofing’s interlocking design adds structural strength to the roof. Many other listed roofing materials cannot offer this. Instead, they rely upon the underlying deck for structural integrity. Additionally, metal roofing ultra lightweight provides safety by reducing the threat of roof collapse. In its survey of roofs after the Northridge, California earthquake (January 17th, 1994), the McMullen Company found only minor damage to about 1% of the homes protected by stone-coated steel roofs. In contrast, more than 50% of the concrete and clay roofs observed had significant damage.
Excellent Weathering and Warranty!
Many products rely on felt underlayments to maintain a sound waterproof membrane. Unfortunately, these underlayments become brittle and can fail, causing a leak. Over time, all traditional roofing products will split, break, crack, curl, warp or absorb water. But not our roofing! With a heart of steel, metal roofing tile & shake will deliver consistent all-weather performance for the life of the original homeowner…they are guaranteed with a limited lifetime weatherproof warranty.
Steel is 100% recyclable. There is little waste, and it can be recycled an infinite number of times without degradation. Most often your Houston metal roofing contractor can install your new metal roof directly over an existing wood or composition roof which eliminates tearing off of the old roof and burdening over capacity landfills.
