Q. What are the advantages to metal roofing over other types of roofing material?
A. Metal Roofing panels are light weight, longer lasting, energy efficient, burn resistant, algae and mold resistant, and are virtually maintenance free

Q. Is metal roofing noisier than typical roofing?
A. A common misconception about metal roofing is they are noisy. On a residential house, metal roofing is installed over a solid deck typically. Also, attic space and insulation serve as additional sound barriers. The noise generated by inclement weather is no greater than that of a shingle roof. (About 30 decibals)

Q. How much longer will a metal roof last compared to regular roofing?
A. Studies show that the average metal roof lasts 2 to 3 times longer than an ashpalt or wood shingle roof. You can be sure that a metal roof will last as long as you live in your home.

Q. Is metal roofing heavy?
A. No. You may be surprised to learn that a metal roof is an average of 50% lighter than an asphalt roof, and 75% lighter than concrete tile, fiber cement shakes and slate.

Q. Do I have to tear off my existing roof?
A. No. Metal roofing can go over asphalt shingles, if you first use 30lb. felt paper or foil bubble wrap. But we often recommend removing the existing roofing if there have been water penetration issues in the past. Also, you should check with your local building inspector as different towns have different ordinances.

Q. Will a metal roof make my house more susceptible to a lightening strike?
A. No. A metal roof will not make a building more susceptible to a lightening strike. Lightening will tend to strike the highest object in a given area, regardless of what that object is made of. A metal roof can actually be beneficial in the event of a lightening strike due to being a non-conbustible material.

Q. How will metal roofing perform in extreme weather?
A. Metal roofing can withstand years of abuse from high winds, heavy snow, hail storms, and even fire. With a Class IV impact rating and Class A fire rating, you can rest assured that no matter what the weather, your home is well protected.
