Weathering the Storm
In Texas, a homeowner's concern is that of storms and hurricane force winds. Many of us have experienced that type of damage first hand. The resistance of a "disposable" roof in volatile weather is greatly determined by its age. Many of these roofs that are damaged during such storms, were predisposed to do so.
Composition roofing shingles are made primarily from paper and fiberglass, with tiny stones glued to the surface. Many roofs become compromised due to their condition and inability to withstand strong winds. In Texas, with our heat and wind erosion, these asphalt based adhesives begin to break down almost immediatly. This is what causes the shingles to dry out, crack and curl.
According to the asphalt roofing industry, the lifespan and durability of a composition roof is approximately 18 years. Most Texas homeowner's know this is not the case! Due to the extreme heat and weather conditions in our area, the actual durable lifespan of this type roof is significantly less. This is why the warranties they offer are pro-rated and allow for depreciation.
Metal roofing is leading the industry in this regard. The durability and protection of a metal roof is long lasting. It is as durable 30 years later, as the day it was installed. They do not dry out, crack or otherwise break down over time. They are installed with non-exposed fasteners so there are no adhesives to break down and compromise the roof. They are one of, if not the most, lasting roofing materials in the industry.
Aluminum roofing is designed to give you all the beauty and elegance of materials such as, stone, slate, tile or wood, but with all the benefits of being lightweight, durable, energy efficient and a lifetimewarranty.
An aluminum roof not only adds to the beauty and curb appeal of your home, it also raises the resale value.
Often times, when we install a metal roof in a new area, we ultimately install several nearby. They add an air of class that many homeowners desire.
An aluminum roof will reflect approximately 94% of the radiant heat. Many customers report an average savings of 20% to 25% on their utilities. Classic Product's Systems include reflective values in the finish.
The placement of the Aluminum roof will also allow for ventilation where composition shingles do not.
Aluminum shingles are made from 95% post consumer recycled aluminum, and are 100% recyclable themselves.
Most of the time they can be installed directly on top of an existing composition roof. If the composition roof needs to be removed, we partner with a company who recycles it into materials that are used in road reconstruction and other services.
