Admitted to the Union in the year 1788, Georgia is the 4th state of the United States. It is home to roughly 10,711,908 people, and ranks as the 24th largest state, occupying an area of 153,910 km². All of Georgia faces the humid subtropical climate, having hot and humid summers and short but cold winters. The overall climate of the state is impacted by 3 main factors - the hill country located in its north, the Atlantic Ocean on its eastern coast, and finally, the Chattahoochee River dividing it into 2 main climatic regions and making the northwestern part a cooler area. In fact, this is the region that sees most of the snow and ice during winter - the rest of Georgia sees milder winters.
Metal roofing systems are very popular in Georgia, primarily due to the fact that they can withstand weather differences with little to no wear and tear for years, if not decades. The most common types of metal panels in the state include Georgia Ribs (coming in both 26 Gauges and 29 Gauges), RPanel (having a rigid design to provide extra thickness), 5-V Crimp (known for its aesthetic appeal and often used in historical buildings and for restorations), SnapLock Standing Seams, CommercialLock Standing Seam, and MechanicalLock Standing Seam (for extra security), and Copper Panels (for custom roofing systems). Other than metal roofs, Gable roofs, hip roofs, mansard roofs and gambrel roofs are also common. Each of these come with their own set of advantages and shortcomings, and are ideal for different types of weather situations.
