Metal roofs are a good alternative for homeowners who wish to try sheet metal shingles instead of traditional asphalt ones. Compared to shingles, however, metal roofs have some popular misconceptions surrounding them. Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal debunk these notions and explain why metal roofs are actually a boon for your home.
1. Metal Roofs Cost a Lot
Metal roofs have a longer lifetime-per-cost value compared to your average asphalt shingles. This is important to point out when trying to weigh in the investment you want to have in your home. Though metal roofs cost a fair bit initially, the lower number of times you’ll need to do roof repairs and even replacement will help your new metal roof pay for itself.
2. Metal Roofs Have Limited Options
Homeowners are worried that due to a metal roof’s nature, there may not be enough styles or patterns to choose from. Thanks to modern sheet metal fabrication, today’s metal roofs are available in a wide array of designs, ranging from metallic tiles to seam panels.
3. Metal Roofs Are Noisy
Metal roofs can actually be quieter than normal asphalt. Due to the sheathing underneath the roof, any noise created by rain, hail and other falling debris can be reduced and even prevented outright.
4. Metal Roofs Have No Color
Metal roofs can have different colors aside from the usual tin or steel colored ones. Metal sheets can be created with different colors and designs to easily match your home. Professional roofing contractors like us can offer you a wide selection of metal roofs whose colors will last far longer than your ordinary asphalt shingles.
