Metal roofing is a great way to go if you’re looking for a good-looking, durable roof to survive the extreme weather in Enid, Ok
If there is a down-side to going with metal, it would be that there are not quite as many color variations to choose from (as you’ll find in asphalt). However, colors do vary with each metal roof manufacturer. Generally speaking, you’ll find a color to blend well with your existing brick or siding. So, don’t let the color limitation discourage you too much. The durability and longevity of this type of roof covering a huge factor to consider.

The higher the gauge, the thinner the metal! For example, a 26 gauge metal roof is thicker than 29 gauge. Occasionally we are asked if a heavier gauged roof will help to prevent hail damage. Simply put, no. We’ve found even the heaviest of metal roof coverings damaged from wind and/or hail. The structural integrity remains, but the aesthetics of a dented metal roof covering are not good.
On that note, be sure to get the best insurance coverage when it comes to your metal roof. Any exclusions for aesthetic damage may be an issue in the future, should you need to recover for hail damage.
Residential Recommendation: 29 gauge is the minimum and 26 is suitable for most applications. However, if you want a higher defense against wind and hail damage, consider going with 24 gauge.
