Roofing Services & Contractors in Maine

Admitted to the Union in the year 1820, Maine is the 23th state of the United States. It is home to roughly 1,362,359 people, and ranks as the 39th largest state, occupying an area of 91,633 km². Regarded as one of the coldest states in the country, Maine’s climate is similar to that of Central Europe - with long, harsh and cold winters, and relatively milder and sometimes-humid summers. Maine sees precipitation throughout the year, but intensity does vary by area - summer rains are more common in the state's northern and northwestern regions, while winter rains and snowstorms are more common in the coastal regions. Both thunderstorms and tornadoes are known to occur less here - Maine faces as less as 20 days of thunderstorms per year.

Much like its climate, architectural and structural elements in Maine also resemble Europe quite a bit - and roofing is no exemption to this. Roofing designs borrow heavily from Scandinavian ones, and therefore use elements such as layering with multiple materials, having flat spaces on top of slopes, and using a camouflaging method to blend the roof’s appearance with the natural environment around it. Wood and clay are heavily used here, though asphalt and slate are also in use, especially for lower layers. In recent years, using rubber and metal - either as a standalone material or in conjunction with any of the aforementioned - have been used.
