Roofing Materials: The Best for Harsh Winter Conditions

We all know just how harsh the climate can get. If you are designing a new build or looking to replace your roof, you obviously want to use a material that can stand up to everything the climate can dish up, plus a lot more. Here are some of the more popular roofing materials that will handle anything the climate can muster.

Metal Roofing – If you want a roof that will stand up to the very worst weather, having a metal roof installed is a great idea. Special steel is welded together to provide a very strong framework, and you can either have roof tiles or metal sheeting installed on to the frame. The best way to discover the potential of a metal roof is to talk to a local roofing specialist who would no doubt be able to show you a few designs and talk about prices.

Many commercial premises use aluminium cladding and roofing, due to its ability to stand up to the worst of the weather, and there’s no reason why your home cannot have a metal roof. Not all roofing companies work with metal, but an online search will help you to find a local metal roofing specialist, and they would be happy to send an expert to your property, where you can both discuss your many options.

Slate – Traditionally, slate has always been a firm favourite, and you can see many fine examples of slate roofs in Sydney carried out by roofing specialist companies who only work with slate. This natural material is a great insulator. Plus, it is fire resistant. Slate will last for many years, and while it isn’t the cheapest of roofing materials, a slate roof is indeed a wise investment. If you would like further information about slate roofing, an online search will take you to the website of a local slate roofing specialist who will be able to make some design suggestions and quote you for the project.

Traditional Roof Tiles – If a standard tiled roof is installed by a professional roofing company, it should be able to deal with harsh weather, and if you do happen to lose a few roof tiles along the way, the roofer would be able to quickly find matching tiles. The traditional clay roof tiles are certainly cheaper than other roofing material, and if the roof is properly installed, there’s no reason why it won’t stand up to the harsh climate. You have wide choice of colour and texture, so it is easy to choose a roof that will add character to your home.

Every roof should be professionally installed, and regardless of material or design, regular inspections are advised, as this will reveal any issues, and with prompt repairs, your roof will give you and your family many years of trouble-free protection. 

If you would like to know more about the above roofing materials, you are advised to make contact with a specialist roofing company, who can inspect your property and help you to design the perfect roof.
