Dallas and its surrounding areas including Bedford, TX and Colleyville, TX present their own challenges when it comes to roofing. While the threat of hurricanes is much lower than southern regions, this area is located in the lower end of Tornado Alley. Summer cyclones and severe thunderstorms can cause quite a bit of damage to homes, especially roofs.
The risk associated with severe Texan weather means that your home’s roof should be built accommodatingly. The top professionals in the industry can construct roofing systems that can not only take a beating, but can also keep a home cool during the blistering summer months. Due to environmental factors, you will want to carefully select your roofing materials.
One such option is a metal roof, which is damage resistant and offers cool roof features if painted light by reflecting sunlight. Decra Shake is a metal roofing system that uses lightweight pressure-formed steel, covered with ceramic stone granules. It comes with a 50-year Limited Transferable Warranty and a 20-year SureStart Protection.
Another more affordable alternative is asphalt shingle roofing. Certainteed Landmark asphalt shingles are also damage resistant and can offer similar reflective features, but are best suited for sloped roofs and do not provide the level of durability as metal roofing systems.
Regardless of what roofing type you desire, you must ensure that your contractor not only specializes in that specific roof, but is also licensed by the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas. Furthermore, customer reviews and word of mouth provide powerful advice.
