Will my new roof hold up to Kansas weather?

Considering the weather in Kansas is fairly moderate, choosing any of the roofing materials would be more than adequate. It would be wise to consider the weight of snow on top of your roofing material and have a plan in place for proper snow removal. Some roofing materials require a little more care than others when removing excess snow. Understanding the procedures before winter arrives is a wise option.
