Quality Metal Roofing Services in Houghton
Houghton is one of the snowiest cities in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Tucked into the base of the Keweenaw Peninsula, surrounded by Lake Superior, and jutting vertically upward it's landscape catches lake moisture, forces it upward to colder air and precipitates it into hundreds of inches of snow per year. People who live in Houghton in the winter know this and dealing with lots of snow is part of life in Houghton.
From the perspective of a roofing contractor, Houghton is one of the most challenging places in the Upper Peninsula to build an enduring roof capable of handling the daunting snow loads that accumulate every year. Big snow means bid ice dams and glacial damage when snow packs move on roof surfaces. The design of insulation and ventilation into roof systems is paramount here, and the shear strength of 24 gauge steel becomes a necessity when designing for endurance over time. Our 24 gauge standing seam metal roofing is the product chosen by Holiday Inn and the Country Inn and Suites of Houghton to handle the conditions on these larger commercial structures, but 90% of the work we do in the Houghton is residential dwellings from people who simply want to resolve the issues with their roofs in a more permanent manner.
