The climate in Arkansas is humid subtropical. Summers are typically hot and steamy, due to air currents from the Gulf of Mexico. July-August is the hottest period and the high level of humidity often increases the thermal discomfort. Remains of hurricanes or tropical storms that hit the Gulf can affect Arkansas occasionally. On the other hand, winters are rather mild. There are only small amounts of snowfall and occasional ice storms.
In these meteorological conditions, there is no surprise that the most popular roofing materials here include tiles or shingles made from materials resistant to moisture and algae formation, developed especially for areas where roofs are exposed to such weather.
Asphalt shingles with copper granules
Asphalt shingles are the most popular throughout the entire North America. They are economic, designed in a large color palette, they are lightweight and come with warranties of 15-20 years, which is good comparing with their price. The copper granules are strategically embedded to ensure algae protection.
Metal is one of the most popular modern roofing materials due to its resistance and durability (50 years warranty). It can withstand storms, being also waterproof and reflective, which means that metal shingle successfully meet the Arkansas` climate-related requirements. The folks at Richardson Roofing offer a host of roofing products to meet the needs and desires of their clients, to provide a long lasting durable roofing system.
