About Indiana Roofing
Winter snows and summer rains can be hard on Indiana roofs so homeowners may want to partner with a contractor to make repairs and keep them in good condition. Once the snow has cleared, the roof should be inspected for damages caused by severe weather and repairs made to sections where wind, snow and ice may have compromised waterproof protection. A quick inspection can help identify minor issues before they become major repairs.
Indiana has hot, humid summers and cool to cold winters with average summer daytime temperatures of 90 degrees, dropping to 60 degrees overnight. In the winter, daytime averages are generally above freezing except in the northern sections of the state. Overall, Indiana receives around 40 inches of rain and snow a year. In the spring and summer, the state can see some 40 to 50 days of thunderstorms (most common in March and April) as well as its share of tornadoes. Homeowners may want to take into consideration weather conditions when making roofing decisions.

ENERGY STAR lists three roofing partners in Indiana that provide energy efficient roofs. The Firestone Building Products Co. manufactures AcryliTop, a liquid coating that can be applied to almost any roofing surface to increase solar reflectance. GenFlex Roofing Systems produces the TPO Cool Roof system, which keeps the roof temperature lower than traditional roofing materials. The Metal Sales Manufacturing Corp. makes Cool Metal Roofing, which allows the roofing surface to remain cooler and transfer less heat into the building.
