There’s a little controversy about metal roofing. We’re here to ease your concerns with the help of our expert friends at Bob Vila™.
MYTH #1 – It Will Increase The Likelihood Of A Lightening Strike
Metal conducts electricity, but electricity is not drawn to it.
MYTH #2 – Metal Roofs Are Noisy In The Rain
This is not so. Many metal roofs may even be quieter than other roof types.
MYTH #3 – Metal Roofs Are Susceptible To Damage By Hail
While extremely large hailstones can dent a metal roof, normal hailstorms will not. With textured roofs, minor denting is not readily visible.
MYTH #4 – You Cannot Walk On A Metal roof
You can, but you have to know how to do it without causing damage. Check with the manufacturer of the product you choose.
MYTH #5 – A Metal Roof Will Make Your House Colder In Winter
Actually, a metal roof has no effect on the temperature of the typical vented attic in winter. It’s the insulation under (or on top of) the floor of your attic that keeps you warm.
