Texas weather is a force to be reckoned with, as hurricanes, tornadoes, and hailstorms frequently wreak havoc on residential properties. The sound of pounding rain on the roof can send chills down any homeowner's spine, as they fear the potential damage that could be inflicted on their homes. Gary Kana, the owner of K+T Construction in Magnolia, Texas, understands these worries all too well, which is why he's on a mission to help people protect their homes with new metal roofing from Metal Depots. With its sleek design and durability, metal roofing is becoming an increasingly popular choice for homeowners who want to safeguard their properties against the harsh Texas weather.
Gary and his team install metal panels right over the existing shingles, saving time on removal and money on landfill costs. He says, “We cut off the edges at the eaves and along the sides so you can’t see shingles anywhere, then we install new flashing along the eaves. If they want gutters, we’ll install gutters.” Gary also says that this saves his customers between $50 and $100 per square depending on the roof's steepness and complexity.
The style of roof that a lot of Austin residents have been going with is the Galvalume style. This style of roofing is a popular choice among homeowners due to its ability to reflect heat, making it a more energy-efficient option for hot Texas summers. Gary refers to this roofing style as "the Austin look." A lot of metal roofs make the structure look like a commercial building, but the Galvalume is a style that gives off a much more residential appeal.
While some neighborhoods' Homeowner Association rules may not allow metal roofing, K+T Construction is finding more and more customers coming to them, looking for a metal roof for the first time. This option has proven to be an efficient, cost-effective, and stylish solution for homeowners looking to protect their homes and enhance their curb appeal.
