As the leading roofing contractor in our area, Storm Master Construction and Roofing installs a variety of roofing materials for our customers, including metal, composition shingle and slate roofing. Metal roofing is a good roofing choice, however, there are many misconceptions and myths surrounding it.
Our expert roofing contractors debunk these misconceptions:
Misconception #1: They Rust
Metal roofing systems usually come with a “metallic coating” that prevents rust from developing, allowing the roof to withstand the harshest weather conditions. Together with paint, this coating ensures that your metal roofing system will look great even after many years. Metal roofing products come in an impressive array of colors, textures and profiles. The right metal roof can significantly add to your home’s curb appeal.
Misconception #2: They Are Loud
Metal roofing systems can actually be quieter than a typical asphalt shingle roof. This is because metal roofs are installed together with solid sheathing. This sheathing can dampen the noise from hail impacts and heavy rain. As a roof replacement and roof repair expert, we can discuss this topic in detail and recommend the best metal roof for your needs during our initial consultations.
Misconception #3: They Are Prone to Lightning Strikes
While metal does conduct electricity, it does not actually attract lightning and make your home more susceptible to lightning strikes. Lightning usually strikes the highest object in an area, such as towers, antennas and trees. In the very rare event that your home is hit by lightning, a metal roof will disperse the lightning’s energy throughout your home’s structure. It is also noncombustible.
