The best part about metal roofing is it fire resistant (classified as Class A). It is quite simple metal roofs do not catch fire, We at Olathe Roofing Company ensure that we build you metal roofs with good quality material below it, that averts any fire crisis. Having said all about fire, we would also like to state at this point that metal roofs are lightweight as compared to any other material, for example, a concrete roof is about 750 pounds/sqft, while a metal roof is 150 pounds for the same square footage. Plus the maintenance is low and can last up to 50 years.
Metal roofs on commercial roofing can withstand harsh weather as well as the other external elements, they can resist wind and sun rays. They are corrosion-free and do not fade or crack. Since they use recycled material to some extent they are environmentally friendly. Since they reflect the infrared radiation of the sun, you can save on your heating or cooling costs.
The most important thing is they come in various colors as well as styles, so the roof can easily blend in with your existing home design, improving the overall aesthetics and look of the house.
This is an ancient material that is spelling its magic in the modern world. The insulating value that you get making a slate roof is because of its dense composition and it is hard. Technically speaking heat can’t pass through, that being said same is the case for cold winds. The most important thing with this type of roof is the beauty associated with it, it looks like a natural rock, that no modern technology can replicate. The second best thing is it has been tested by time and weather conditions for centuries actually for ages. So it will stand tall easy for 150 years or more. Since rock does not conduct electricity there are no chances that you will be hit by lightning. However, there is a word of caution if you heat your home more than 1000 degrees, (with we are sure you won’t) there are chances of it to crack. At Olathe Roofing Company we offer every type of repair service right from changing few slates to complete re-doing the roof with new slates, even repairing gutters to flashing the chimney, all it takes us is a couple of days.

A tile roof as the name suggests is made up of tiles, in earlier days the place that we could see tiles was the bathroom or kitchen walls. That being said, things are no longer the same, because tiles are reflective, they now are being used in various areas including the roof. It is an upcoming trend to use tiles for making roofs, it is made by arranging tiles on a preexisting structure. You may think, why would someone use tiles when there are other available options mentioned above. Well to answer that in one word, it would be aesthetics, while others are durable options, this one, in particular, is because it gives your home a rich look.
When we talk about elegance, nothing else matches the elegance of the tiles. They have transformed the way modern roofs look, what was once wood famous for, they still don’t come close to the tiles, especially with their ability to reflect light to every corner. When it to other roofing materials the options are limited in terms of designs. But at Olathe Roofing Company we offer you a variety of tiles shapes, designs, and styles to choose from. We are very sure that you will love what you see, our experts can even do a custom design for you.
Another important aspect of tiles is that it is environment friendly, unlike many who prefer plastic roofing don’t know that it is harmful to the environment, while tiles are eco-friendly, so being a responsible citizen it is always advised that we choose tiles over plastic. While wood has its aesthetic appeal, we need to remember that it is also very prone to fire and can bring substantial losses. Unlike the others, tiles don’t catch fire, you can be worry-free of any such accidents in the summers or for that matter during rains as well.
Snowfall can cause damage to tiles, so can tornadoes, but we at Olathe Roofing Company have it covered for you. We offer warranties on our products, be it a small budget purchase or a high-end deal, our warranties are generous in either case.
