Metal is currently one of the most popular materials for both residential and commercial roofing. This roofing option is highly durable, energy-efficient, and sustainable. With proper care, it can last for more than five decades. It also comes in a wide variety of colors, styles and finishes that will increase your property’s value and curb appeal.

A trusted roofing contractor answers some of your most frequently asked questions about metal roofing.

 

Do Metal Roofs Produce Loud Noise When It Rains?

Among the top myths about metal roofing is that it is loud when it is raining. It is also one reason some people are skeptical about the material. The truth is, with sufficient insulation, a metal roof will not create loud noises during rainfall just like any other roofing material.  

 

Do Metal Roofs Rust?

While steel roofing can rust, aluminum roofs do not. Rust usually develops on the exposed edges of steel roofs and scratches made during manufacturing or installation. You can keep your roof from rusting by investing in a steel alloy with high zinc content. Also, make sure to hire an experienced contractor for your roof replacement project. 

 

Will a Metal Roof Absorb More Heat From the Sun

Modern metal roofing comes with high-reflectivity coatings that deflect solar energy and heat. Standard shingles take in more heat from the sun than metal roofing. A metal roof can even reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 20%. 

 

Do Metal Roofs Attract Lightning?

Another popular misconception about metal roofing is that it attracts lightning strikes. It does not increase the probability of a lightning strike. In case of a lightning strike, it will not ignite nor get caught in flames since it is non-combustible.
