Metal roofs are becoming more popular in the U.S., especially in states affected by extreme climate conditions. The Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) says that Florida, Pennsylvania, California, New York and North Carolina are the top states for interest in metal roofing. Read on to discover why a metal roof is beneficial for areas that experience severe weather.
The five states mentioned all have faced different extreme weather and climate conditions. Homeowners are more focused on all-season durability and performance due to the occurrence of wildfires, hurricanes and ice dams.
There is an increased demand for metal roofing among those who are restoring their homes after a severe weather event. According to the MRA, metal roofing is popular in extreme climate regions because of its long lifespan, excellent fire resistance and resilience against wind, hail and heavy snow.
While the demand for metal roofing will continue to rise nationwide, the lack of qualified contractors will be an issue when it comes to meeting local demand. Keep in mind that you can only fully enjoy the benefits of a metal roof if it’s properly installed.
