Can Metal Roofs Insulate Your Home In Winter?

Metal roofs are an excellent choice for keeping your home cool in the summer while cutting back on those extreme summer energy bills. But can that help keep you cozy and warm during the cooler months? Let’s take a look at how metal roofs insulate your home in Winter.

How Can Metal Roofs Insulate Your Home In Winter?

Metal roofs are actually the best choice you can make to keep your home insulated and safe through the winter. Because it takes so long for metal to heat up and cool down, it essentially stores heat all through the day and releases it all through the night. This process both insulates and radiates heat, all at once. If your ultimate goal is to preserve energy, you can enhance this effect by choosing the right underlayment and insulation.

How Else Do Metal Roofs Stand Up To Winter?

The holiday season is merry and bright, but brings with it the dangers of snow, ice, severe winds, and extreme temperature fluctuations. This can lead to hail, falling branches, ice, snow, and extreme temperature fluctuations. Luckily, metal roofs can protect you from all this. Metal roofs can withstand high winds, don’t crumble under the weight of snow, do not contract with temperature fluctuations, and allow the snow to slide right off the moment the temperature rises above freezing.

So How Does A Metal Roof Cool My Home In Summer?

Get yourself a roof that can do both! Along with being an excellent thermal conductor, metal is also an excellent insulator. When the sunshine hits your roof in winter, your metal roof will absorb the heat from it and store it to fight off cold at night, keeping your building warm after sunset. During the summer, metal roofs reflect UV rays keeping your house cool.

From durability to insulating your home, of all the conditions Winter may bring, nothing stands up to them quite like a metal roof. And with a lifespan of up to 50 years, a metal roof is one of the best exterior investments you can make. Contact our team today to learn more.
