Questions Most Often Asked About Metal Roofing

Q. Why should I spend a little more for a metal roof?
A. Ordinary roofing materials have shorter life spans than metal and will need to be replaced regularly. With constantly increasing material and labor costs, that could mean a significant expense over the life of your building. A metal roof virtually never needs to be replaced, saving you money while adding value to your residential or commercial structure.

Q. How much protection does a metal roof offer?
A. FIRE: A metal roof will not burn or support combustion. WIND: Experience at recent hurricanes has shown that metal roofs outperformed other roofing products. WATER: A metal roof has a low rate of water absorption, greatly reducing damage to structure. And a metal roof cannot be penetrated by hail.

Q. How can a metal roof save money on energy bills?
A. Metal reflects the majority of the sun's rays, so it doesn't retain as much heat as wood, asphalt shingles, tile or cement. This means a metal roof could help your attic stay cooler longer - leading to a significant reduction in your building's energy bills.
Q. Is a metal roof noisy when it rains?
A. Contrary to popular belief, metal roofs are not noisy when it rains. In fact, according to one study, metal roof's noise levels are about the same as other products like asphalt shingles, wood shingles or clay tiles.

Q. Can I walk on my metal roof?
A. Yes, but since a metal roof requires virtually no maintenance, there should be no reason to do so. Like any roof, care should be exercised. You can discuss specific details about walking on your metal roof with your installation company.

Q. Does my present roof have to be removed before a metal roof is installed?
A. In most applications over asphalt, our metal roofs can be applied directly over the old roof, saving money and eliminating a great deal of mess. In addition, because there is no old roof to dispose of, landfill space is spared, helping to protect our environment.

Q. How much do these metal roofs weigh in comparison to other types of roofing?
A. Metal roofing materials are less than one-third the weight of asphalt, one-twentieth the weight of concrete, and add less than 10% to the weight of the existing roof materials.

Q. Does the roof need to be grounded?
A. Grounding of any exterior metal siding or roofing is not recognized as necessary by any major building code organization. Occasionally, certain municipalities or local building codes may require it. Detailed grounding instructions are available. Because metal roofing is both an electrical conductor, and a noncombustible material, the risks associated with its use and behavior during a lightning event make it the most desirable construction material available.

Q. How long will a metal roof last?
A. A metal roof won't dry out, split, curl, peel or flake like conventional roofing products. Metal roofing has been successfully used for centuries and they last substantially longer than any other roofing product on the market.

Q. How good is the paint finish on my metal roof?
A. Our metal roofs are painted with a two-coat, high-performance Fluoropolymer with exceptional weathering characteristics. Its durability and color retention are the result of the high molecular weight of its formulation. During its application, the molecules in the paint chemically bond to form a durable, long-lasting finish that resists breakdown by ultraviolet rays and provides the most durable, long-lasting finish available today.
