Roof extension involves nothing but tweaking your existing roof from flat to slope or vice versa. Since you are not removing the existing roof, some of these concepts compensate the given looks of your manufactured homes. In fact, not just looks, it is often the simple tweaks that do the tricks for builders when prices go up.
Flat to Slope Manufactured Homes Roof
Homeowners feel the need to change the flat roof when the climate inside becomes weary. Sloped roof with gutters and overhang becomes mandatory during monsoon season mainly to protect the exterior walls from water damage. Rainwater harvesting is one of the specialties of sustainable living, and that is not an exception for manufactured homes either.
Choosing the ideal Roof Extension Material
There are three roof materials to choose from rubber, metal, or thermoplastic polyolefin, that are popular among sloped roofs. TPO are classified as reinforced polyester having rubber and plastic coating; something that ricochets an ultraviolet light beam. That too depends on thickness, as TPO membranes are available from 45 to 90 millimeters.
Layered Shingled Roof
Shingles are basically seashore pebbles, as cheap as they come, among roofs in small manufactured homes. So as long as you have not gone for extended roofs in manufactured homes, one or two layer of shingles can be employed upon the existing roof. The good thing with shingles is that they provide different style coloring and even texture whilst retaining the original appeal of your home property.
Manufactured Homes Roof with Metal Roof
Life expectancy of metal roofs is unbeatable going by builders across provinces in America. Expect a good 50 years of life with metal roof extensions that are thinner in size compared to shingles. Most metal roofs can be installed within two days, in turn improving the appearance of your small manufactured homes.
Did you know adding insulation upon metal roofs and over the existing roof could lessen the noise within manufactured homes? No amount of wind or shuddering raindrops are going to affect homeowners; layers of foam coating underneath the roof even remit thunderstorm. Apropos, insulation also cuts down on your energy bills by giving excess heat on winter or keeping things lukewarm down under during summer. You might need more roofing concepts to accommodate seasons though, for much like manufactured homes, they also change gradually, geographically.
