During a hailstorm, hail will fall on the roof with great force, and this can often damage the roof. Similarly during a storm, in addition to rain falling on the roof continuously, the wind is also blowing at a very high speed. Depending on the roofing material used the roof may develop holes and start leaking, or the roofing material may get blown off, exposing the rooms of the house. If water starts leaking in any part of the house, it will cause great damage to the furniture, furnishings, appliances, and make it difficult for the family to continue living in the house, till the roof is fixed.
Hence to ensure that the roof will last for the longest possible time, and will not get damaged in adverse weather conditions, it is advisable to install the best roofing material which is available. Though metal roofing is more expensive, it is also stronger and less likely to get damaged by hail or strong winds. Depending on their budget and home design, property owners can choose different roofing materials like steel, aluminum. They can have different designs like metal sheets, shingles. They may also use other materials like slate, clay tiles for the roof.
