Why Metal Roofing?

A very good question with an easy answer, Metal Roofs Can Be Installed in the Winter, But Regular Roofs Cannot!

The decision to install roofing during the cold winter season in Stroudsburg and the Northeast Pennsylvania region can’t be made unless you’re informed. You may want a traditional shingle roof, however, weather conditions may not permit it. Metal roofing is a smart alternative that comes with many benefits.

Traditional roofing just might not be possible in the winter. With the harsh winds, dropping temperatures, and unpredictable snowfall, shingles can easily crack. The sealant used to attach shingle roofing requires heat and warmth from the sun in order to bond, therefore it’s near impossible to properly install in the winter. Improper bonding can lead to your shingles blowing off and even causing major leakage.

Metal roofing can be a simple solution if you’re planning on installing roofing in Stroudsburg this season. The freezing temperatures don’t affect metal roofs because they are not installed with sealant that needs warmth like traditional roofing. Metal roofing is attached by other means such as nails and screws. The benefits of metal roofs continue with the fact that they won’t crack or blow off because they are designed to withstand changes in weather by expanding and contracting when necessary.

Although both roofing techniques are possible, metal roofs are the sensible solution this winter season in Stroudsburg. A traditional roof may do more harm then good, and will cost you a fortune to repair down the road. Metal roofs are less likely to cause problems and will require virtually zero repairs in the warmer months to come.

Metal Roofing FAQ

Common Metal Roofing Questions

Metal roofing is no more susceptible to lightning than any other roofing material. Lightning most frequently strikes the highest point in any terrain; and if your roof is at the highest point of the surrounding terrain, you can install lightning rods.
No. This is one of the most common misconceptions we run across. With everything underneath a metal roof, such as your insulation, the ply wood and 99% of the time we run the metal panels over your shingles, all these things serve as layers enforcing the fact that you won’t hear the rain.
Actually, a metal roof can save you money on your a/c costs because it has a higher heat reflectivity than other roofing products like asphalt/fiberglass shingles, wood, tile, etc. During the summer it makes homes cooler by efficiently reflecting away sunlight and reducing the amount of heat transmitted into the building. Likewise, it makes buildings warmer in the winter by reflecting inside heat from the underside of the roof back into the building. This good thermal reflectivity translates into energy savings by reducing cooling costs in the summer and heating costs in the winter.
Much to many peoples surprise, metal roofs are significantly lighter than other types of roofs. Typically they weigh less than one-third the weight of asphalt/fiberglass shingles; and are as much as 75% lighter than clay, concrete or slate.
This is uncommon. When we are dealing with 30 foot long metal panels then there is a possibility they will expand and contract. This mainly can occur with large commercial or industrial buildings. But for the sake of your home you have nothing to be concerned about.
Metal roofs will last forty plus years. A warranty for a forty year paint finish is provided by the manufacturer. This will most likely be the last roof you have to place on your home.
No it will not rust or corrode. It is made out of steel and aluminum making it resitant to rust and corrosion.
Yes you can; however, like walking on any roof, you should be careful.
All metal roofing products are very wind resistant. Many styles have been tested to withstand hurricane force winds and can be as high as 120mph.
Metal roofs are very tough and highly resistant to hail damage… much more so than asphalt/fiberglass shingles. In fact, many metal roofing products have the highest impact resistance and hail rating granted by the insurance commissions in the hail belt regions of the U.S. Some insurance companies even provide a reduced rate for metal roofs.
