Spring is the season for lots of rain and wind, especially in Memphis. During storms, your roof is one of the most vulnerable areas of your home. Protect your home from flying branches, hail, and water damage with a metal roof.
Wind & Rain
Metal roofs can resist winds up to 140-mph. They are constructed and installed in a way that limits the areas where wind and rain can make their way in. Water damage primarily occurs from either rain or flooding. The interlocking panels that make up a metal roof helps to ensure water does not seep in. Also, metal roofs do not absorb water making it the perfect protection against water damage. A Metal roof’s inorganic makes it easy to clean, and hard for algae, mold, and mildew to grow.
In the chance of hail storms, metal roofs are extremely durable against impacts. It is very hard to dent or even puncture a metal roof. It is very unlikely for average sized hail to cause any damage.
You never know what could happen during a severe storm. There have been cases where severe storms have sparked electrical fires. In the worse cases, the fires have spread as a result of strong winds carrying the embers from house to house. Those with metal roofs are better safeguarded from events like these. Metal roofs are inherently fire-resistant, which make them a great choice for areas with a high wildfire risk.
In blizzard prone areas, snow and ice easily slide off, saving your house’s infrastructure from extra weight. Metal roofs also reduce condensation build-up which helps the insulation in your home.

Not only are metal roofs storm resistant, they also have a natural lifespan of 40 to 70 years. Homeowners can recoup up to 95% of their metal roof costs and increase their resale value by 1% to 6%. Metal roofs can also save you up to 40% in energy costs. That is roughly a savings of $24,000
