Metal Roof FAQ
A. We do get this question a lot, due to people remembrance of the dinging sound coming from the rain associated with a barn. The answer in a short is no. Most roofs are installed right over the old shingles which acts like a sound barrier, thus leaving a quiet product.
A. Metal roofing will cost more than most shingled roofs. The cost difference today is much lower than it has been in the past. A metal roof is something that will last you around 50 years. You would assume a metal roof would be costly or out of budget but once you sit down and go over the figures I think you would be pleasantly surprised (you could put 2-4 asphalt roofs in the same lifetime of one metal roof). After a metal roof is installed it requires no maintenance, unlike shingled roofs which require replacements every 10-20 years. The metal in the roofs is resistant to fading and can withstand even the harshest climates.
A. They are energy star rated and they are made of about 25% recycled material. Steel is the most recyclable metal. The asphalt shingles will not have to removed therefore reducing solid waste and landfills.
A. When lightning strikes it strikes at the highest point. With that being said, anything at a high point is likely to be hit, but there is no increase with a metal roof.
A. Yes, you can have both solar panels and skylights installed into a metal roof. With the sky lights, it's recommended that you have newer ones installed at the same time as the roof. The skylights can be flashed right into the metal roof. As for the solar panels, they can be placed right over the panels of metal for maximum efficiency.
