No. Unlike concrete tile or asphalt shingle, which store and transfer heat, metal absorbs and dissipates heat quickly. Airflow under the roof helps prevent the transfer of cold air and reduces freeze thaw cycles in the winter. Results include lower air conditioning and heating costs for your home.
Excessively large hail can damage almost anything, but Future Roof has a UL 2218 Class 4-hail resistance rating, the highest rating available. In some states, the class 4 rating entitles homeowners to as much as a 35% reduction on homeowner’s insurance.
Future Roof panels are lightweight, flexible and structurally sound, making them one of the safest, most durable roof coverings available in earthquake – prone regions. Compare this to the “the top heavy affect” of 15 tons of concrete tile on your roof.
While it is safe to walk on, in accordance to manufacturers’ instructions, the low-maintenance Future Roof almost eliminates that need. With Future Roof, it is no longer necessary to replace trim and shingles that have blown off or to patch leaks in badly worn areas.
