Common Metal Roofing Myths
MYTH: Lightning is attracted to metal roofing.
TRUTH: Contrary to popular belief, lightning is not attracted to metal. Instead, it is attracted to height. If you are concerned about your metal roof, a lightning rod on your house may be the solution. One other thing to consider is that metal roofs are non-combustible, meaning that they will not catch fire if struck by lightning.
MYTH: Metal roofs are noisy during storms.
TRUTH: No more than any other roofing material. Ask your Roof Pros technician how you can reduce any noise caused by your metal roof.
MYTH: Metal roofs are dented easily.
TRUTH: Only if you have the wrong kind. Ask your Roof Pros technician about which type of metal roofing is best for your specific needs.
MYTH: Metal roofing traps heat in the summer months.
TRUTH: Modern metal roofing releases absorbed heat quickly, and return to their regular temperature quickly. Metal roofing panels are also reflective, so that less heat is absorbed overall. If you are still concerned about this aspect of metal roofing, ask your Roof Pros technician about installing soffit vents to allow cooler air into your structure.
