Metal Roof FAQ
Are metal roofs noisy?
Not when installed on solid roof deck. Years ago metal roofing was installed over open rafters and furring strips causing a "pinging" noise. Today our metal roofing systems are installed over solid decking that dampens out the noise making our metal roofing systems no noisier than a shingle roof.
Will I have to remove my existing roof?
In most cases YES a metal roof can be installed over existing shingles without affecting its performance or longevity. This method of installation saves on labor, disposal cost, and landfill waste.
Does a metal roof attract lightning?
A metal roof has no greater chance of being struck by lightning than any other type of roof. Lightning typically targets the highest point in a given area regardless of material. It will dissipate electrical charge and is non-combustible so it will not ignite.
