If you want your metal roofing cost to be worth the investment, you need to consider more than just using better materials. With the right contractor and installation, your roof will become a solid system of components that help your home get through nearly any kind of extreme weather. You need to think about how you can make your roof more resilient against nature while also benefiting from it.
Consider these key factors that create roofing resilience for your property:
Color and Insulation
This aspect of your roofing system plays a vital role in keeping your home or commercial property comfortable. A roof with a high R-value will make it more efficient since there’s less transfer of heat in and out of your property, which can help maintain a comfortable temperature indoors even if there’s a power outage. And more comfort will also encourage more productivity for the occupants!
Daylighting and Energy Production
In a well-built roof replacement, it can be useful to have rooftop daylighting systems that can provide adequate daylight to keep your home or commercial property functioning in case of a power outage. Just be sure to balance your daylighting systems and R-value carefully; prioritizing too much on daylighting can affect and reduce your roof’s R-value as well.
For longer-term resiliency, consider adding solar panels to your roof. Solar panels can store energy in batteries and can be used in the event of a power outage to help power up the main components of your property. Keep in mind that most PV systems won’t provide energy during a blackout since they rely on the power grid itself.
Impact and Wind Resistance
A resilient roof should easily withstand high winds as well as hail and debris. Your roof should be designed to resist wind speeds that are higher than what’s required in your area, and that it should be applied with a tough coating between the insulation layer and the membrane.
