Certain parts of Texas are especially known for their extreme heat, especially during the summer. And, extreme weather isn’t exactly great for your roof.
In this article, we share what you need to know about future-proofing your roof against Mother Nature’s extreme forces.
The Rationale Behind Future-Proofing Your Roof
Nowadays, architects are developing ways of future-proofing homes in terms of changing global weather patterns. You might see dome-like houses in South Carolina, rounded homes in Florida and homes on stilts or floating houses in the Netherlands to combat rising sea levels. The possibilities for future-proof homes are endless. What if you don’t have the time to have a new home built? The only solution you can do is to improve and future-proof your first line of defense: the roof.
How to Go About It
When it comes to future-proofing your roofing system, your best bet in doing so would be replacing your current roof with either a green roof or a metal roof. Both are good choices, not only for their energy efficiency and eco-friendliness, but also because they are highly durable. Metal and green roofs have the ability to withstand high winds, heavy precipitation and even hailstorms more than asphalt shingle roofs.
Some contractors can also recommend additional components to reinforce your weatherproofing. One such “optional” component is a gutter protection system, which can help your gutters flow smoothly, and additional ventilation solutions so your attic can breathe easier during the worst of summer.
