Kansas City is no stranger to strong storms that arise at a moment’s notice. To weather these storms, it is crucial that your home and your roof are secure to protect your family and your assets. Here we offer information on a few durable roofing systems to help you decide how to protect your roof.
Tile roofing is touted as one of the strongest roof materials in the industry. While there are many kinds of tile roofing, such as concrete and clay tile, they are all known to weather storms without sustaining as much damage as traditional roofing systems would. Tile is hail resistant, designed to keep out torrential rain, and often withstands winds in excess of 140 mph. Slate roofing tile is also a strong roofing material, as it is a natural material. Tile roofing maintains its strength over time partly because of its resistance to freeze and thaw cycles. Many traditional roofing materials expand and contract during temperature changes, but tile is unaffected by this phenomenon, allowing it to preserve its strength over many years.
Metal roofing is also resistant to storm damage. Capable of withstanding hurricane force winds, and insulated against hail damage by wood or felt backing, metal is common in areas that experience strong storms that endure extreme weather conditions.
