Metal Roofing FAQ
Q: How much protection does a metal roof offer?
• Fire: Metal will not burn or support combustion.
• Wind: Experience during hurricanes has shown that metal roofing greatly outperform other roofing products.
• Water: A metal roof offers superior protection against moisture penetration, greatly reducing the chance of damage to the structure.
• Hail: Hail will not penetrate a metal roof.
Q. Is a metal roof noisy when it rains?
Contrary to popular belief, when installed over solid decking a metal roofing is not noisy when it rains. In fact, according to one study, a metal roof’s noise levels are about the same as other products like asphalt shingles, wood shakes, or clay tiles. The idea that metal roofing is noisy most likely comes from installations over open framing. An open framed installation does increase the noise a metal roofing creates.
Q: Is it necessary that my present roof be removed before a metal roof is installed?
In most applications over asphalt shingles, our metal roofing can be applied over the old roof with 30lb felt underlayment or 1’x4′ lathing boards installed between the existing roof and the new metal roof. This saves money and time. In addition, because there is no old roof to remove, landfill space is spared, helping to protect our environment.
Q. Why should I spend a little more for a metal roof?
Ordinary roofing materials have shorter life spans than metal roofing and will need to be replaced far more often. With constantly increasing material and labor cost, that could mean a significant expense over the life of your home. A metal roof will last far longer, saving you money and adding value to your home.
Q: How can a metal roof save money on energy bills?
Metal roofing reflects the majority of the sun’s rays, so it doesn’t retain as much heat as wood, asphalt shingles, tiles, or cement. This means a metal roof could help your attic stay cooler longer – leading to a significant reduction in your energy bills. Many of our metal roofing products are Energy Star® rated.
Q. Can I walk on my metal roof?
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.
Q: How much does metal roofing weigh in comparison to other types of roofing materials?
Metal roofing weighs less than other roofing products, in many cases enabling it to be installed over the existing roof using felt or lathing strips.
Q: How long will a metal roof last?
A metal roof will last far longer than conventional roofing products. Metal roofing has been successfully used for centuries. Our metal roofing comes standard with 40-50 year warranties, and is expected to last far longer than that.
Q: Just how good are the coatings and paint finish used on metal roofing panels?
A: The paint finishes used on our panels are the highest quality. We start out with a high-tensile steel. We then coat it with a Galvalume 55% zinc, 45% aluminum coating. They are next pre-treated with primer, and then finally coated with a high quality baked-on enamel paint system.
