Metal roofing can be molded into many shapes and are installed as interlocking panels with hidden fasteners. If you look from a distance, they can almost perfectly mock the appearance of shingles and tiles.

Metal roofs has its share of misconceptions including:

  • It’s more likely to be struck by lightning. While metal does conduct electricity, it’s not necessarily drawn to it.
  • Metal roofs are noisy in the rain. Not true. In fact, they could be quieter than other types of roofs
  • Metal roofs can be damaged by hail. Extremely large pieces of hail will damage any roof, but normal hail will not.
  • Metal roofs make your house cooler in winter. Metal roofs actually have no effect on the temperature of your attic. It’s the insulation under the attic floor that keeps you warm.

The primary benefit of metal roofs is its longevity. Meaning, most manufacturers offer 50 year warranties and sometimes lifetime. Metal can in fact last two to four times longer than other roofs such as asphalt. They are also lightweight and fire-resistant.
