Is a metal roof right for my home?

Metal roofs can be a great addition to just about any home. Metal roofing offers many attractive features not available with traditional roofing. Installing a metal roof that will not wear and fade will add not only an aesthetic appeal to your home, but also significant value whenever the home is sold.

Is a metal roof noisy when it rains?

No, this is a common myth about metal roofing. Metal roofing is typically installed over plywood sheathing, felt paper, and/or existing shingles. Attic space and insulation serve as added sound barriers. As a result, the noise levels of a metal roof during inclement weather would be similar to other roofing materials.

What about lightning?

Steel roofing is no more susceptible to lightning than any other other roofing material. Actually, since metal roofing is non-combustible, it is a great option where severe weather is a concern.

How does the cost of a metal roof compare to other roofing materials?

Few homeowners realize that metal roofing can actually cost as little of LESS than traditional asphalt shingle roofing. While most conventional roofing methods require replacement on average of 15-20 years, most metal roofs are backed with a 40 year warranty, lasting an average of 2x longer. Additionally, metal roofs pay for themselves with lower energy costs, less maintenance, reduced insurance rates, and tax credits/energy rebates
