North central Texas is one of the most volatile weather areas in the country, as even the best McKinney roofer will tell anyone who asks. McKinney, Texas lies about 30 miles north of Dallas and residents can suffer blazing heat of summer and a few months later freezing temperatures and high winds. When you think about it, the only thing stopping the wind from hitting Dallas are a few barbed wired fences!
No one in North Texas lives in a house with a straw roof. One of the largest growing areas for roofers in the areas has been in steel roofs. Some of the best McKinney roofers have been promoting steel roofs during the last several years because of the strength of steel. The roofing comes in two different types, fastened steel and steel shingle, and can stand winds up to 140 miles an hour, or a category 4 hurricane. Switching to steel will also easily double the life-span of your roof as well.
Metal roofing of any kind is great looking as well as very strong and there are more than 200 different types of metal shingles alone that have either a UL2390 Class H or ASTMD3161 Class F rating made by six different companies, giving roofers a wide variety of choices available to them. Metal roofing can be expensive however and, if you want the longest possible lifespan, requires more care than asphalt or wooden roofing. Home-owners will generally tell anyone who asks however, that the extra expense and preventative maintenance is well worth it.
In many ways maintaining metal roofing is much like maintaining any other type of roofing. You should follow the following rules:
Roofs are not made for walking. Keep people off of your roof, especially if you have a shingled roof, because it is easy to damage them. Metal roofs are also much slipperier than wooden roofs and great care should be used if you do have to walk on the roof.
Keep the roof surface clear of fallen leaves, twigs and other debris, checking carefully under the edges of shingles. The same rule applies to keeping downspouts and gutters clear as well. The best way to do this is to keep trees trimmed back.
Inspect the roof at least once per year and the best McKinney roofer will recommend an inspection by a professional twice per year.
These roofs need more care than wooden roofs. If not painted and sealed on a regular basis, metal will rust, especially in north Texas which can suffer heavy rains, snow, ice and hail, sometimes all in the same day. Metal roofs should be painted at least one time for each three years of life and doing this will extend the lifespan of the roof by a decade or more. The best McKinney roofers will not only correctly install a great looking metal roof, they will help you maintain it as well. Finally, if you are considering a new roof, metal roofs will increase the market value a great deal more than the cost of the roof..
