A humid continental climate is an excessive version of two different weather conditions: the extreme summer and the extreme winter. The durability of roofs will be tested in this kind of climate, so it is imperative that the roof installed by professional roofing contractors can adapt to dramatic shifts in temperature. In this post, Neumann Construction explains how steel roofing performs in humid continental climates.
Steel is designed to have a high endurance in any harsh climates and extreme temperature fluctuations. A steel roof ensures that your house is safe and secure against hail, snow, wind and fire.
Impact damage caused by hail can be prevented with steel roofing. Roof repair experts say that with a Class 4 hail resistance rating, steel roofs will not be pierced, chip or crack like slate.
• Ice and Snow
Steel roofs drop heavy ice and snow much better than other types of roofing. Because of this, excessive snow buildup and ice dam formation can be avoided.
Steel roofs can endure strong winds. A steel roof has a Class 90 wind uplift rating and can resist winds of up to 120 miles per hour.
Steel is a non-flammable material. A fire will not spread with this type of roofing. In fact, steel has the highest (Class A) fire resistance rating.
Why You Should Consider Steel Roofs
Steel is the strongest and most durable material so your roof won’t be vulnerable to rotting, decay, discoloration, mold growth or termite infestation. This leads to lower maintenance costs and fewer repair issues.
