Metal is one of today’s most durable, long-lasting and sustainable roofing options. When installed correctly and maintained routinely, it can last between 40 to 70 years. Another reason more and more homeowners are asking their roofing contractors for this material is because of its energy efficiency.
Here are the answers to some of the most popular questions about metal roofing.
Can a Metal Roof Harm My Home’s Curb Appeal?
Modern metal roofing comes in a wide range of colors, textures and styles that can boost your home’s curb appeal. Aside from typical metal panels, it is also available in styles that resemble other popular roofing options, such as shingles.
Does a Metal Roof Attract Lightning?
It’s a common myth that metal roofing increases the likelihood of a lightning strike. In the rare case that a metal roof does get stricken by lightning, it will not ignite because it’s not a combustible material.
Are Metal Roofs Noisy When It Rains?
With deck, insulation and underlayment, a metal roof should not be noisier than any other roofing material when it rains. All the layers of building material between your roof and living space will significantly reduce the noise that hail or rainfall creates.
How Can a Metal Roof Help Me Save Money?
Metal roofs have reflective coatings that deflect solar heat, meaning they can help reduce your utility bills. A high-quality metal roof can cut down your cooling costs by up to 25%. While it may have a higher upfront cost than other residential roofing options, it can last longer and is easier to maintain, resulting in longer-term savings.
