Various Benefits Of A Metal Roofing During Winter

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.
