Q: What are the benefits of metal roofing?

  • Metal roofs come in a variety of colors and design options. 
  • Metal roofing is incredibly durable and can last more than 30 years. 
  • Metal roofing is fire and rot-resistant. 
  • Metal roofing is energy-efficient and can reduce your energy costs. 

Q: Can metal roofs be installed over an existing roof? 

Yes, they can! Metal roofing is lightweight and is unlikely to overload your current asphalt roof. Installing your metal roof over an existing one can also provide extra insulation.  

Q: Is metal roofing noisy?

Metal roofing is typically installed over an existing roof or a plywood and felt base. As a result, sounds from wind, hail, and other weather conditions aren’t any louder than other roofing materials.  

Q: Is metal roofing expensive?

Metal roofing does cost more than an asphalt roof. Initially, installing a metal roof will be more expensive, but it will last longer and need less maintenance over time, potentially saving you money in the long run. 

Q: Is metal roofing environmentally friendly?

Yes, metal roofing is a much more sustainable option than asphalt roofs. Your metal roof may be partially made from recyclable metal, and at the end of its lifespan, it can likely be recycled again, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to other roofing materials. 

Q: How do metal roofs handle snow and ice?

Metal roofs are great for colder climates that get heavy snowfall. When snow lands on your roof, it won’t build up and will instead slip right off, also helping to reduce ice formation.
