Roofing resilience means the ability of a roof to withstand extreme weather events while ensuring a stable protection for the building. Obviously, when a roof gets damaged or blown off, a building becomes unusable or uninhabitable. It also exposes the occupants to certain hazards.
With uncertainties always present in the economy, it’s understandable for property owners and managers to pull back on improvement projects and prioritize smaller tasks like single-ply roof repair to address immediate concerns. What many don’t realize is that prioritizing “must-do” projects can actually offer bigger and longer-term returns, helping weather recession-related concerns while protecting your investments.
A report by the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) shows that there is a growing demand for metal roofing, particularly in states experiencing severe climate conditions. These include California, Florida, New York, North Carolina and Pennsylvania, with Texas also showing interest.
Metal is growing more popular in residential roof repair and replacement. It’s mostly due to its durability, fire and wind resistance and ease of maintenance. However, it must be installed correctly with the proper metal roofing underlayment.
It’s important to hire an experienced residential and commercial roofing contractor because improper installation can cause your roof to sag. A sagging roof can come in various forms, caused by different factors.
