Roofing in Oklahoma City – Facts You Must Know

Roofing indicates the act of installation or repairing roofs of houses or buildings. While making a roof, it is quite important to keep the climate of that area in mind. Oklahoma City, capital of the state of Oklahoma in the USA, is a moderate state when it comes to its climate. The west of the state is semi-arid whereas, the east shows humid and subtropical features. Average temperature in Oklahoma varies from 30O F to 94oF. The summers are hot, sweaty and humid. The winters are cold and windy with a snowfall of average 5.8 inches. The precipitation is 35.6 inches average.

Oklahoma City having a pretty decent climate provides amazing residential and real estate properties. Most of the state being just a mass of flatland provides the great foundation ground for building houses.

Deciding the type of roof

Roofing companies in Oklahoma City often provide a wide variety of roofing material. The companies usually check if your house has leakages, seepages, cracks and if the walls are strong enough to hold a new roof. With the advent of new technologies, companies use drones with heat capturing tech to see if the previous roof had any thermal leakage.

Oklahoma City is a state which receives standard snowfall and rainfall. Thus, a pitched roof is a must. Slate is the materials which is best suited for snowy winters. A pitched roof made up of slate helps the snow to slide off.

Asphalt shingles is another widely used material for building roofs. It is an inexpensive, easy to install and light weight material perfect for quick installations in summer.

Green roofing is the best organic material which has been used for years. Thanks to its terracotta base, it keeps the house cool. You will feel like you have a wet towel on your face. Summers in this city being hot and humid, green roofing sure does justice to it.

TPO or thermoplastic polyolefin is lightweight, thanks to its single layer of synthetic roofing membrane. There is a thin reinforcing scrim over it. It is one of the fastest growing materials to be taken up by the roofers. A TPO roof will last easily up to 30 years. With the only disadvantage being that excessive heat can crack up the material. But the summers of Oklahoma City will not do much harm to it.

Tile roofing is the most classic way of roofing. With its terracotta base, it can easily withstand precipitation or snowfall. Tiled roof can even withstand extreme conditions, from hailstorms to tragic fires. Only issue with this type of roofing is, there can be  leakage if there is a craftsmanship fault.

The last option is metal roofing. Metal roofing is although light and easy to install but it is expensive, and noisy. Nobody wants thumping on our heads when there is rainstorm.

Cost

Replacing costs average to $14,500 while installation of new roofs can vary from $15 to $85 per lead. Good commercial roofing companies provide insurance, one must always take that claim.
