Stone coated steel roofing in California4

In the colder areas of California, such as Lake Tahoe or Mammoth Lakes, where the average annual snowfall is 68 inches and 43 inches, respectively, you need to find a roofing material that provides additional insulation. In addition, it is important to take care to prevent destructive ice dams from forming roofing materials to keep the temperature of the entire roof area consistent.

JINHU metal roof spotlight

JINHU products are non-porous, making them an ideal roofing solution for winter residences because they can resist freezing and thawing ice and snow. All JINHU roofing profiles provide the necessary space between the roofing material and the roof terrace, thereby forming an additional insulation layer. They also maintain a consistent temperature throughout the roof area to help prevent damage and dangerous ice dams.

Other performance characteristics to consider

When choosing a roofing material that can withstand almost everything that nature provides, metal roofing is usually the best choice. In addition to withstanding the above-mentioned climate and environmental conditions, metal roofing products like JINHU can also protect your house or building from the following influences:

Earthquakes: Although asphalt shingles, clay or concrete shingles will add too much weight and result in a top-heavy structure (the worst case for houses in earthquake zones), they will not increase the strength of the roof deck. Lightweight JINHU stone-coated steel provides additional shear strength for the roof deck to withstand vibrations in seismically active areas.
Wind: Traditional roofing materials have obvious defects in wind resistance. Shaking wood tends to crack and loosen around the fasteners, making them extremely easy to wind up. Clay bricks that break easily are also easily blown up by the wind, and there is hardly any warranty support.

JHL stone coated steel roofing has a unique interlocking system that can firmly fix the multi-layer panels in place in hurricane winds. They even meet the requirements for high-speed hurricane zones, including Miami-Dade, Florida, which is known as the windiest region in the United States.

Hail and storm impact: The UL2218 Level 4 test conducted by Underwriters Laboratories is considered to be the industry standard for measuring the resistance of roofs to hail impact. It simulates the destructive effect of a 2-inch hail from 20 feet or higher on the roof. The roof material is rated from 1 to 4 according to its resistance to the impact of steel balls dropped from different heights. In order to achieve the highest level 4 rating, the roof material must not show any signs of fracture. All JINHU metal roofing products have the highest UL2218 level 4 impact rating.

No matter where you are in California, JINHU metal roofs provide performance, durability and protection, unaffected by the elements you are looking for. But the strength of JINHU stone-coated steel roofing products does not mean you have to sacrifice style.
Best Roofing Material in California: Style

Just as California’s climate is diverse, the style of houses and buildings may vary from region to region. Tile roofs are one of the most popular design elements in Mediterranean-style houses and buildings, rustic and colonial themes are popular, and thick-cut asphalt shingles are common in urban communities.
However, the shortcomings of traditional roofing materials such as asphalt, tiles, and wood may present challenges for Californians who don’t want to sacrifice strength or style.
When looking for the best roofing material for your California house or building, you will want to find a roofing product that has design versatility to match the appearance of your area (for homeowners, you usually need to find a product, Approved by your HOA).
