Metal Roofing Questions

Does a metal roof cost more?

Yes- metal roofing is a premium roofing material that costs more than a traditional asphalt shingle roof. On average, a metal roof costs 2 - 3 times more up front than an asphalt shingle roof.

The benefit of a metal roof is it typically lasts much longer than other roofing materials and requires very little maintenance.

Are metal roofs louder in the rain?

A common question is whether metal roofs make more noise than asphalt shingle roofs. This question likely arises from peoples' experiences with open-framing metal roofs such as on a barn. These are loud because there is no insulation or material under the metal panels. On your home, there is a layer of wood decking then attic insulation to absorb the sound. On a typical home, metal roofing is not louder inside the home.

What colors and styles are available?

Metal roofing has increased in popularity over time and as a result the number of available styles has increased rapidly. There are hundreds of colors and styles available to fit your home.

Everything from the traditional red to dark brown or light silver, you can choose the color, panel style, ribbing style, and other features to match the style of your home.

How long should I expect my metal roof last?

There are many factors that affect how long your new metal roof will last. The materials you choose, design of your home, and weather events the roof is exposed to all play a role in how long it lasts. The average metal roof lasts between 40 - 50 years, though some last longer.

Are metal roofs environmentally responsible?

Most steel metal roofing panels contain recycled materials and can be recycled when the roof has reached its expected lifetime. Compared to asphalt shingle roofs, metal roofs result in significantly less landfill use and petroleum use even if used shingles are recycled.
