The climate of Arkansas is determined by the proximity of the Gulf of Mexico – it is the Gulf’s huge body of water that gives Arkansas its humid subtropical climate, with hot, wet summer sand drier, mild or cool winters. The climate in the region is made even wetter by the Arkansas Delta and by the other rivers in the area and that high humidity requires homeowners in the state to pay special attention to the selection of their roofing materials. Experienced Fayetteville roofing companies know the roofing products that best suit the conditions in their state. Here are some of the best choices – all of them materials that are not sensitive to excess moisture and are able to provide efficient ventilation:
- Asphalt shingles –these durable, lightweight materials are great for Arkansas, especially thev arieties that use copper granules for the topmost protective and weatherproofing layer to enhance the resistance of the shingles against thealgae infestations that are so common in humid climates;
- Metal panels or metal shingles– both solutions work great and give homeowners the benefit of resistance tomoisture and heat and they are resistant to fire and pests;
- Clay tiles – though aheavy material, clay is among the most durable roofing materials used today,resistant to any weather and protecting the building underneath against heat,cold, moisture, pests and fire.
