Upgrade your roof system with JHL Metal tiles
Even in the most high-end real estate sector, there are problems with the roofing system of houses. Traditional roofing materials such as asphalt, wood, or clay have a limited service life and are not sufficiently strong. When a homeowner decides to choose a new roof system, the most common question is: “Which metal roof system is the best”
The best roof system needs to have the characteristics of fire, ice dam, wind, and rain, so a suitable roof system is very important. There are too many roofing materials to choose from, from common asphalt shingles to fragile clay shingles. Although these roofing materials can provide protection for houses, stone coated steel roofing systems are more protective than other materials.
The metal roof system combines durability and long life, while the stone-coated steel roof has aesthetics that other metals cannot provide.
Repair or replace the roof
Renovating the roof refers to installing new roofing materials on the existing roof. Replacing the roof is more thorough, and the old roofing material needs to be completely removed.
Roof decoration is the most efficient and cost-saving way.
JHL’s ultra-lightweight stone-coated metal roofing systems do not require the removal of the existing roof. The softer asphalt roof tiles cannot be used to decorate the roof. In fact, if your local building rules allow, you can install JINHU roof tiles directly on the asphalt roof.
When decorating the roof, the best way is to use lightweight roofing materials.
Each region faces different weather conditions. For example, hail threatens the roofs of Texas, and the salty and humid air is always eroding California houses. It is very important to consider the local environment before the renovation is completed because inappropriate materials will shorten the service life due to the influence of the harsh environment.
All state building codes have requirements for fire resistance. In order to meet the UL standard, the covering must meet a certain degree of protection to prevent flames from damaging more houses.
Fire rating of metal roofing system
- Class A: To achieve the best protection against flame penetration for the roof, the most stringent test must be passed. No additional chemical treatment or more installation materials are required.
- Class B: This type of material is required to be able to withstand moderate fires. It can meet the requirements after soaking in flame retardant chemicals, and it can reach Class A by adding additional materials.
- Class C: It is not recommended, because they can only withstand mild fires, which is very dangerous.
Although asphalt shingles and clay shingles can reach Class A fire rating, their weight poses a challenge to the supporting structure, which causes additional expenditure. JHL metal roofing system can easily reach Class A fire rating by virtue of its own excellence.
Clay tiles are very fragile, and even normal roof maintenance will cause the tiles to be crushed. This means that when the hail comes, it will cease to exist. Although shingles will be better, aging wood will be easily torn apart by hail. Asphalt shingles can resist hail very well at first, but it is soft and cannot offset the impact of hail, which is very destructive to the cushion.
The JHl roof system uses aluminized zinc steel as the base material, which can perfectly resist the impact of hail.
The heat from the roof melts the ice and snow, and when the melt water freezes on the eaves, an ice dam is formed. Ice dams will affect the normal drainage of water, causing water to soak the roof.
Asphalt or timber roofs have huge disadvantages in terms of wind resistance. For example, the wind can cause the shingles to loosen, or directly tear the asphalt shingles. Clay tiles cannot be added for reinforcement, and it is inevitable to be blown off by the wind.

Calculate the cost of a metal roofing systems
When preparing for roof renovation or replacement, it is necessary to calculate the cost, direct value, and long-term value of each material. Although asphalt is the cheapest roofing material on the market, it has a service life of only 12-20 years. Although the initial cost is low, frequent replacement and installation will make the cost increase rapidly.
The service life of JHL stone coated metal roofing is 2-3 quilts of asphalt and wood. It also includes other long-term values:
- Metal tile roofs can reduce cooling costs by up to 25%
- Can increase home value by 6%
- Recover part of the cost
