Types of Roofs and Their Aerodynamic Properties

There are many different kinds of roofs available for modern houses. The different shapes of roofs offer a wide range of advantages.

In this video, learn about different types of roofs and their aerodynamic properties. A hip roof slopes upwards from all sides, giving it a more aerodynamic design.  Hip roofs offer great protection during wind storms. A gabled roof, on the other hand, slopes up from two sides, creating a roof that looks like the letter ‘A.’

Know the Facts About Metal Roofs

A reliable roof is an integral part of any home. Even small problems with your roof can cause serious damage. For example, a small leak, if left unattended, can lead to serious water damage. Homeowners have become wary of wood shingles, asphalt shingles and other roofing materials. Therefore, metal roofs have become increasingly popular among homeowners. Myths about metal roofing still abound, though. Read below to find the truth about metal roofing.  

  • Myth 1: Metal Roofs Are Prohibitively Expensive
    Many homeowners are reluctant to switch to metal roofing because they think that the material is very expensive. This is not true, however. Not only are metal roofs reasonably priced, but they also help save you money in the long run. Unlike conventional roofing materials, metal is durable and able to withstand virtually anything. This means that, instead of spending large sums of money for regular repairs, you can rest assured that your metal roof will last for years and years.
  • Myth 2: Metal Roofs Absorb too Much Heat
    Another myth that surrounds metal roofing is that it absorbs heat and consequently causes the temperature in your home to increase. However, metal roofs are designed to do just the opposite. They reflect much of the heat they receive back into the atmosphere. This helps decrease heat transfer between your metal roof and your home. Your home’s temperature is regulated and your energy costs decrease.
  • Myth 3: Metal Roofs Are Not Aesthetically Appealing
    One of the most popular misconceptions about metal roofing is that it is not pleasant to look at. Indeed, when most homeowners think about metal roofing, they imagine simply sheet metal without any modifications. Metal roofing, however, is actually one of the most customizable roofing materials available. When you install metal roofing, you can customize its appearance to ensure that it matches the rest of your house’s design.

Proper roofing can increase your home’s value, protect your home’s structure, and help you save energy. To learn more about the benefits of metal roofing or to receive a free roof estimate, call Paul Bange Roofing at (954) 981-7663.

Why Pre-Storm Season Roof Inspections are Important

Heavy Rain

Your roofing system is your home or business’s number-one defense against storm-related damage. In the same way that you’d never drive a car without brakes, you should never go into hurricane season without a strong, protective roof. To determine if your roof is storm-ready, contact Paul Bange Roofing for a thorough inspection of your commercial or residential roof. Here are three reasons why you’ll be glad you did.

  1. Avoid Storm-Related Damage
    Although some roofing damage can be expected after direct impact from a hurricane, most Fort Lauderdale homes and businesses should be able to make it through storm season with their roofing systems intact. Unfortunately, low-quality roofing installation, old roofing materials, and pre-existing roofing problems can make an otherwise healthy roof susceptible to leaks, broken shingles, damaged decking, and other storm-related problems. Identifying and repairing these issues ahead of time can reduce your building’s risk of suffering from roofing damage.
     
  2. Reduce Recovery Time and Costs
    In instances when your roof is heavily affected by stormy weather, the repairs and reinforcements you’ve made to your roofing will help reduce the extent of the damage. This will help minimize disturbances to your home or business so that you can pick up where you left off before the storm. It’ll also reduce the cost of recovery since you’ll have made critical repairs ahead of time that can improve the strength of your roof.
     
  3. Give You Peace of Mind
    Simply being aware of the condition of your roof and what it takes to prepare it for hurricane season is valuable. You can experience peace of mind knowing that your roof was thoroughly inspected and repaired by a Fort Lauderdale roofing expert before storm season.
