Every year, we speak with Canadian Homeowners who regret not having their roofs replaced in the Summer when they had the chance.
If you are thinking of investing in a new roof, consider installing a metal roofing solution. These are becoming more popular across Canada every year. You can even learn more about the benefits of metal roofing with the below-mentioned tips:
1. More Durability
Slates of metal are unable to bend, crack and deform as shingles do over time. Rain and snow will not damage the material, resulting in a longer lifespan. Shingles, on the other hand, begin to crack with the changing seasons and curl when the sun rests on them year after year.
2. Less Snow & Ice On The Roof
With its sleek metal surface, metal roofs will not hold ice and snow the same way a shingle roof would. It’s less likely for snow to pile up as it slides off the sides of your home better and faster than a granulated shingle would allow it to.
This makes a leaky roof less likely and provides you with a sense of security knowing your home is in good protection.
3. Less Weight
Excessive snow and ice build-up can be very heavy for your roof. In turn, this puts a lot of pressure on the foundation and walls. Your home can only hold so much weight until a collapse is inevitable.
With a metal roof solution, the snow and ice will fall off easier than a shingle roof, resulting in less weight sitting atop. Shingle roofs always tend to accumulate more snow, tree branches, leaves, etc.
