Admitted to the Union in the year 1803, Ohio is the 17th state of the United States. It is home to roughly 11,780,017 people, and ranks as the 34th largest state, occupying an area of 116,096 km2. Much in line with the state lying in the eastern and northern-central part of the US, Ohio largely faces a humid continental climate, with hot summers and cold freezing winters. The southernmost part of the state, however, faces more of a humid sub-tropical climate, having milder winters. While the occurrence of tornadoes here are fewer, Ohio does face a fair share of snowstorms that hit the area.
Being able to weather the snowstorms and keep the house (or commercial property, for that matter) safe is high on the priority list for any property owner in Ohio. This makes metal a highly common and popular choice amongst all types of property owners. Ohio has more types of metal roofs than most other locations. Some of the many types of metal roofs include galvanized steel roofs, galvalume steel roofs, aluminum roofs, zinc roofs, copper roofs, titanium roofs, stainless steel roofs and stone-Coated metal shingles. That’s not to say that non-metal roofs are not used - many homeowners are known to go for types such as asphalt, 3-Tabs, architectural shingles, impact-resisting shingles, COOL roofs, slate and/or tile shingles, and of course wooden shakes.
