Metal Roofing Myths

Roofing disasters are serious and can strike at any time of day or night, which is why we offer emergency service 24 hours a day.

metal reflects heat and blocks its transfer into the attic. Research by the Florida Solar Energy Center in 1985 showed that metal absorbed 34 percent less heat than asphalt shingles, and homeowners switching to metal roofing reported saving up to 20 percent on their energy bills.

Dealing with damage from wind and storms can be expensive when you have a traditional shingled roof. While asphalt shingles are a durable material for protecting your roof system in normal weather conditions, hurricane weather and heavy rains can rip shingles and wear them down quickly. This is why we highly recommend metal roofing for homes.

Metal roofing is an extremely durable, weather-proof material that can protect your home for decades. It can withstand windy weather and does not rust due to protective coatings on the steel. When you are facing hurricane season, a metal roof over your home is more likely to stand up to the strong winds compared to shingle roofing.

While the initial cost of metal roofing is higher than shingles, the cost over the lifetime of the roof is much cheaper because of the low maintenance and lower risk of damage and needed repairs. Not only that but metal roofing is also:

Metal roofs are more likely to be struck by lightening

Metal roofs have been demonstrated to be no more likely to be struck by lightning than any other roof. In fact, metal roofs are better able to absorb a lightning strike and distribute the electricity across the roof. Additionally, metal is noncombustible and will not catch fire if it is struck by lightning. If a lightning does strike your home, a metal roof will safely dissipate the electric charge even if it is not grounded.


Metal roofs are noisier than other roofs during rain

This is a common misconception based on older metal roofs installed over barns with nothing to insulate the sound produced by the impact of rain. Modern metal roofs are installed over plywood, solid sheathing or your existing roof. This innovation allows metal roofs to suppress the noise generated by rain drops colliding with your roof. Onestudy even suggests that the noise levels of metal roofs and other roofing materials during storms are comparable.


Metal roofs are expensive

Metal roofs are actually less expensive than asphalt shingle roofing systems because they require fewer repairs and less maintenance over their functional lifespan. In addition, metal roofs can help you reduce your cooling bills during the summer by up to half while simultaneously increasing the value of your home. If properly installed by a licensed professional, a metal roof can last a lifetime, and you’ll never have to install another roof again.


Metal roofs rust easily

Modern science and technology have largely driven the development of metal roofing beyond the concern of rust and oxidation. Steel roofing is designed with a coating of zinc or aluminum, which is bonded to the steel.  In addition, specially designed high-performance primers and paints are applied to the roof that serve as an added safeguard that prevent rust from occurring. These paints come in virtually every color and can satisfy the particular taste of any homeowner.


Metal roofs may be easily dented

Today’s metal roofing systems are designed to withstand the abuse of extreme weather and daily exposure to the elements without failure. The impact of hail storms is typically not enough to dent metal roofs. Moreover, wind damage should not be a concern either because contemporary metal roofing standards dictate that metal roofs be capable of withstanding winds of up to 155 mph. In fact, metal roofs stand up to the strain of hurricanes better than any other roofing system. It is not uncommon for our roofers to see an undamaged metal roof neighboring several roofs that have had their shingles removed after a hurricane or severe storm.
