The energy savings, attractive appearance, and durability make metal roofing a desirable choice for many homeowners. Rocklin residents should also appreciate its fire resistance. FEMA recommends metal roofs for homes with any risk of wildfire exposure. A metal roof will not dry out or contain potentially flammable petroleum products. Metal can also resist the embers and excessive heat homes experience when exposed to a nearby wildfire.
Hiring a professional roofer for metal roofing installation ensures the material lasts and protects the home as expected. At Clark's Gables Roofing, we inspect the existing framing, ventilation, and sheathing to ensure stability. The roofers install a moisture barrier first, followed by flashing and drip edges.
Overlapping metal panels cover the surface and meet at the roof crest, where a ridge cap completes the installation. Metal roof panels install quickly and easily, but their weight and awkward size make the installation challenging. These challenges mean it is not a job recommended for non-professionals. Improper installation can cause leaks and invalidate warranties.
