Roofing Services & Contractors in Louisville, Kentucky

Admitted to the Union in the year 1792, Kentucky is the 15th state of the United States. It is home to roughly 4,505,836 people, and ranks as the 37th largest state, occupying an area of 104,656 km². The larger section of the state enjoys a humid subtropical climate, with humid and hot summers and cold winters. The southeast section of the state, which is close to the Appalachian Mountains, however, is an exception as it faces marine climate, with cool summers and relatively cooler (yet not too cold) winters. Extreme temperatures are not common here - levels rarely go below 0 degrees or beyond 100 degrees. Kentucky is especially vulnerable to natural disasters, which has included historical events such as the March 1890 middle Mississippi Valley tornado outbreak (1890) and Gradyville flood (1907) to the recent deadly Tornado Outbreaks of 2012 and 2021.

Given its vulnerability to hurricanes and cyclones, and natural mis happenings in general, Kentucky homes tend to use metal shingles. These offer the strategic advantage of being lightweight yet offering the benefit of protection against high winds and precipitation, as well as temperature regulations. Different types of metal shingles are used here, to make it look “non-metallic” - for instance country manor shakes offer the effect of real wood shakes, Oxford shingles imitate the look of architectural shingles, Grande Tile roofing systems, which use a tile coating for a vintage effect, and rustic shingles, which look like a replica of wooden shingles (minus the disadvantages like warp, splitting or molding).
