Misunderstandings about metal roofing
Metal roofs have become the preferred roofing material, but they are often misunderstood. Fake information about metal roofing seems to be spread quickly, but few people understand it correctly. When you are considering metal roofing, JHL Metal roofing supplier will expose these misunderstandings for you.
Metal roofing attracts lightning
One of the biggest concerns some people have about metal roofs is that metal attracts lightning. However, the reality is that although metal conducts electricity, it does not attract electricity. In fact, metal roofing is actually safer than other materials because metal is not flammable and will not cause fires due to lightning strikes. JHL stone coated steel roof benefits from the stone coating on the surface, which is resistant to lightning.
Hail will cause irreparable damage to metal roofing
Metal roofs will receive hail damage, which is unavoidable for all roofing materials. But metal is the strongest of the roofing materials, so it is more resistant to hail. The stone coating on the surface of the JHL roof tile once again serves as a buffer for hail.
Metal roofing is noisy in the rain
Many people have memories of the metal roof being noisy in the rain. However, the current metal roof is installed above another roof, and the use of attic and sound insulation materials has made the noise disappear. The stone coating of JHL roof tiles greatly reduces the noise generation, and it is very quiet even when standing outdoors.
Metal roofing affects indoor temperature
Metal transfers heat, so people think that metal roofs will transfer heat indoors and outdoors. In the past, this was true when there was no roof cushion or attic. But now, this problem has been resolved. The stone coating of JHL roof tiles will reflect part of the ultraviolet rays, keeping the indoor temperature at a suitable level all the time.
Metal roofing will affect wifi or cell phone service
You know, the wall has a greater impact on WiFi than the roof. But a good router can solve this well, so you don’t need to worry about it.
Did you receive a call while shopping at Wal-Mart, or under the Eiffel Tower? These buildings use a lot of steel to support the structure, but it never affects your signal.
The WiFi signal depends on the signal provided by your cable or satellite service, the size and configuration of your home, and the quality and settings of the modem and router in your home. If the cell phone signal coverage in your area is weak, the metal roof will have some influence on the cell phone signal. However, if there is usually a strong cell phone signal (3 bars or more) around your house, adding a metal roof will have little effect on your ability to make calls or send and receive text messages
Metal roofing in winter
Ice dams are a headache and the most common. They can cause serious damage to the roof. When snow repeatedly melts and freezes, ice dams appear. Thick ice is formed along the eaves of the roof and puddles are formed on the roof, which is a very serious problem. So how to deal with the ice dam to ensure the safety of the house?
Increase the slope of the roof
If there is no snow on the roof, there will be no ice dam. Therefore, if the homeowner increases the slope of the roof so that snow cannot accumulate on the roof, this problem can be solved well. The JHL roof tile has a unique interlocking structure, which can form a great slope.
Improve attic ventilation
One of the best ways to prevent sickness is to improve the ventilation in the attic. This can well improve the temperature inside and outside, making the bottom of the ice dam begins to melt. If ventilation is done well, the possibility of ice dams forming again is very small.
Tips for choosing the color of metal roofing
Some homeowners believe that the color of the metal roof not only affects the beauty but also affects the temperature. The color of the metal roof does cause different temperature differences, but most of them are only reflected outdoors.
Whether the roof coating can resist ultraviolet rays is very important. This not only allows your roof to have a longer service life, but also minimizes fading.
Decide in advance the color you want
Not just simple colors, they will have various shapes and patterns. In some areas in extreme environments, the color of the roof does have a certain impact. Black metal roofs are used in cold areas, while white metal roofs (light colors) are mostly used in hot areas. It is very important to choose a shape or color that you can be satisfied with in the next few years. Even your choice will become the neighbor’s choice.
JHL roof tiles have 12 shapes and 16 kinds of colored sand. Different roof tiles are matched, and there is always one suitable for you.
Maintenance of JHL metal roofing
After choosing the metal roof and determining the color of the roof, the maintenance of the roof follows. The good news is that JHL roof tiles require minimal maintenance, but daily inspections and occasional maintenance are also necessary.
After many years of use of an ordinary roof, your house will suffer considerable wear and tear. Minor repairs and regular maintenance are ways to ensure that your house will remain beautiful in the future. The maintenance required for choosing different roofing materials is different. JHL metal roofing requires far less maintenance during its life cycle than other roofs. JHL roof tiles have a service life of up to 50 years and do not need to be painted.
The service life of metal roofing is generally about 40 years, and the service life of JHL stone coated metal roofs is up to 50 years. If properly maintained, they can be used for a longer time, even 70 years of continuous use. Unlike shingle roofs, which require a lot of maintenance every year, JHL metal roofs require very little maintenance every year. If your JHL metal roofing has been used for less than 3010 years and has not been subjected to bad weather, you only need to check it with the naked eye.
Long-term foreign trade
Asphalt, wood shingles, and clay tiles are easy to break and loosen, making the whole house look very unattractive. Ordinary roofing materials will cause the color to fall off, and it will appear very old in just a few years. The JHL roof tiles will not fade for decades after installation.
JHL roof tiles are coated with resin, which plays a good role in preventing water and mildew. Therefore, the roof can maintain a long-term luster and will not change color for many years.
