Durable Metal Roofing in San Jose
Metal roofing is known to be much stronger and more durable compared to traditional asphalt shingle roofing. Many manufacturers will offer 30-year limited paint warranty on their metal roofing panels to help your metal roof last twice as long as a conventional roof. Because metal roofing is so durable, it has long been the choice for many school, government, and industrial buildings, but has more recently gained popularity in residential areas.
No matter the weather conditions – hail, sun exposure or wind – Metal roofing is of superior quality to asphalt shingles and other composition roofing products. Unlike shingles, metal roofing will not deteriorate due to sun exposure. High winds and/or a hail storm will destroy a composition roof, but a metal roof can handle wind speeds up to 140 MPH and is extremely hail-resistant. Metal roofing performs so well,that in the state of California, if you have a metal roof that meets Underwriters Laboratories UL 2218 specifications, you can qualify for up to a 35% discount on your homeowner’s insurance.

Benefits of Metal Roofing
As reported by the Cool Metal Roofing Coalition and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, installation of reflective metal roofing can save your home up to 40% in summer cooling energy costs. If you’re ready to start saving on cooling costs in those California summers, call Westshore Roofing in San Jose. Metal Roof installation is one of our specialties.
Many people don’t know they have considerable options when it comes to the finish of a metal roof. Unpainted metal roofs reflect a lot of the solar radiation an asphalt roof usually absorbs into your home, whereas pre-painted metal roofs reflect solar radiation while also re-emitting it outward in a way that also cools your home. In a climate such as San Jose’s, a highly reflective and high-emission painted or a granular-coated metal roof is the ideal choice for reducing energy consumption because it can re-emit up to 90% of absorbed solar radiation – saving you hundreds each year.
Additionally, most metal roofing, including standing seam, is composed of recycled material and can be installed directly onto an existing asphalt roof, reducing landfill waste and promoting quick installation as well as decades of environmentally-sound, maintenance-free strength and beauty.
