4 Ways a Metal Roof Will Keep You Warm This Winter Season

Nov 08, 2018

Freezing winter weather can dampen a homeowner’s holiday spirit. Ice on the roads, snow on the driveway, and cold temperatures can turn a winter wonderland into your worst nightmare if you don’t take preventive measures beforehand.

You always want to be comfortable and warm inside your home, but the weather can have other plans. If you have trouble regulating your indoor temperature during the winter season, consider investing in a metal roof. Metal roofs regulate your home’s temperature by properly ventilating hot and cold air, keeping your roof at a cool temperature to avoid water damage, and shedding snowfall.

Temperature Regulation

Metal roofs have temperature-regulating capabilities that other roof materials simply do not have. Metal roofs prevent fluctuations between the outdoor temperature and your attic’s temperature, keeping the house at a comfortable level of warmth through ventilation and insulation. Even the color choice of your metal roof can help keep your temperatures comfortable – darker colors absorb heat, while lighter colors reflect heat. If you live in a cold area with lots of snow, it’s best to opt for a darker metal roof. Since the roof absorbs heat, it can melt the snow that falls on it.

Snow Shedding

When heavy snowfall happens, most roofs are in danger of collapsing due to the immense weight of the snow. If your roof caves in during the winter, this could set you back thousands of dollars in emergency repair fees, heating costs, and other measures to keep your family warm and safe. When snow falls onto a metal roof, it simply slides off onto the ground. You’ll never have to worry about snow damaging your home during the winter, keeping you and your family safe and warm.

Ice Dam Prevention

One of the most insidious winter dangers for homeowners is ice dams. These occur when ice freezes in your roof’s margins. When this ice melts, water travels up your shingles and slowly seeps into your home. This can result in water damage to your ceilings, walls, and drywall, as well as cause stains around your windows and doors, and rusting. This can set you back thousands in repair costs. Metal roofs don’t have shingles, so when ice melts, it simply slides off the roof. This helps keep your home safe, undamaged, and warm.

Energy Efficiency

Metal roofs are more energy-efficient than non-metal roofs. Even darker roofs that absorb more heat than they reflect have high energy ratings, thanks to modern roofing technology. Thanks to their temperature-regulating capabilities, you will feel warmer in your house during the winter with a metal roof. You won’t have to blast the heat constantly – saving you up to 30% on your energy bill.
