Wisconsin roofing is also a great choice for the roof of a commercial or residential building where there may be a greatly increased chance of fire. Because metal roofing is fire retardant it can withstand a higher temperature and protect a building from becoming enveloped in flames until the fire department can arrive to extinguish it.
Or, it situations where there is a fast moving brush fire, like those experienced in Southern California, quality metal roofing can ensure that there is a not a flammable foothold for a spark to gain a foothold. And, because it is relatively light, it can be installed on most pre-existing buildings without requiring new framing – not to mention the fact that it can come in a number of colors to provide a custom look to a home of any architectural style, especially those that are of a farmhouse or ranch design.
Last, but not least, metal roofing in Wisconsin is extremely durable, which means your roof, in addition to providing you with fire protection – potentially lowering insurance costs – lasts much longer than the traditional 20 years of a regular roof.
