Metal roofing systems have become more popular in recent years because they’re durable, long-lasting and aesthetically versatile. In this blog post, Winfield Builders, one of the top roofers in our local area, explains everything you need to know about metal roofing systems.
Metal Roofs Do Not Attract Lightning
You may have heard that metal roofs attract lightning. This is simply not true. Lightning finds the tallest object to strike–the material of that object doesn’t matter. In the unlikely event that lightning were to strike your roof, you’ll actually have better protection with a metal roof because metal is fire resistant.
Metal Roofs Can Be Installed on Any Home
Improved manufacturing processes and increasing availability mean that metal roofs are no longer a novelty. You can find them on all kinds of homes, not just high-end, architect-designed homes. Metal roofs come in hundreds of colors. There are metal roof options that can match all kinds of architectural styles. As an expert in roofing and windows, we can help you choose the right metal roof for your home.
Metal Roofs Are Not Noisy
Another common misconception is that metal roofs are noisy when it’s raining. The truth is that a properly installed metal roof is no noisier than any other kind of roofing system. This is because metal roofs are installed over a solid substrate. In addition, the attic and insulation act as another sound barrier.
