Roofing resilience is essentially a roof’s ability to withstand extreme weather conditions and provide stable protection to a building. It’s not uncommon for damaged roofing to render a building uninhabitable or unusable, thus exposing its occupants to various risks and hazards. So, it’s important to look for features that help make your roof more resilient.
Insulation is critical for maintaining comfort inside a building. Typically, a higher R-value means there is less transfer of heat into and out of the building via the roof system. This enables the roof to maintain a stable temperature and avoid issues that may be caused by extreme heat or fluctuating temperatures. Another way to maintain a stable temperature for your roofing is by using reflective roof surfaces. This type of roof surface is designed to reduce potential solar gain.
Roofing resilience means being able to withstand high winds. Roof replacement experts usually refer to building codes, which have strict regulations for the wind design of roofing systems. However, you can also opt to have your roof designed for higher wind speeds in order to have greater protection against blow-offs. Furthermore, you can have the edges of your roof enhanced since wind damage often occurs at the corners and perimeters.
Impact resistance is the roof’s capacity to withstand the impact of debris, hail or roofing equipment. To ensure that your roofing is impact-resistant, you should use a sturdy membrane with a durable cover board between the membrane itself and the insulation layer.
