Metal is a popular choice for residential roofing. There are still many myths about this roofing material. Reggie Reed Roofing dispels four of the most common myths surrounding metal roofing so that you can make informed decisions.
- They make cool nights colder- Any experienced contractor will tell you that a metal roof won’t make your house feel colder in winter. Your indoor temperature will not be affected by your metal roof if your attic is well ventilated.
- They are a Lightning Magnet- Metal roofs are very susceptible to lightning strikes. This is a common misconception about conductivity and attraction. While metal conducts electricity but isn’t attracted, it doesn’t attract it. Reggie Reed Roofing recommends metal roofing systems for their excellent fire protection. Metal panels, like tiles roofing products, won’t ignite if struck by lightning.
- Hail hits can cause hail to lose its form- Normal-sized hailstones will not damage your metal roof. You won’t notice any significant damage or dents to your roof after a hailstorm.
- They are Noisy during Rain- Not always. Insulated attics help reduce the noise of rain on metal roofs. Metal roofs emit no more noise than other systems. Cool metal roofs are a great way to make your home more comfortable throughout the year.
Reggie Reed Roofing recommends metal roofing for its many benefits. Metal roofs can provide beauty, durability, and energy efficiency.
