Roofs aren’t created haphazardly. They’re manufactured with a purpose. And each roof has factors that make it resilient no matter what the weather condition is. Billings Roofing & Solar, your leading roofing company, discusses what these factors are to help you choose your new roof replacement system.
A resilient roofing system is able to withstand high winds. Low-quality shingles and roofing materials easily tear off when exposed to wind-driven rains. Both residential and commercial roofs should have strong wind resistance to protect your property for a long time.
A hail storm is a terrible occurrence for roofs. It leaves dents and dings all over your roofing system, even to the point of shattering your already weakened shingles. That’s why impact resistance matters. A good roofer understands the need for a roof to be able to withstand impact from hail and other debris.
Comfort is the primary concern of insulation. With the right type of insulation in your attic, you’ll have less heat gain compared to homes with a roof lacking proper insulation. This helps control the temperature inside your home without overworking your HVAC.
Lastly, the roof color matters in terms of heat absorption. Light colored roofs deflect heat better than dark colored roofs. You won’t have a hard time dealing with your shingles trapping heat and deteriorating over time. For commercial roofs, white coatings are applied to reduce the heat absorption.
