Metal Roofing: Before & After Gallery
How long do metal roofs typically last?
Metal roofing is incredibly durable, with a lifespan ranging anywhere from 40 to 70 years. This is 2 to 3 times as long as traditional asphalt shingles last. And, a metal roof can be fully recycled when its usable life is over.
Are metal roofs noisy when it rains?
A modern metal roofing system that’s installed on a house with attic insulation would have rain noise that’s similar to what you’d hear with an asphalt shingle roof. Of course, an open frame roof on a barn or outbuilding would have much more rain noise than a shingle roof.
Is metal roofing energy efficient?
Yes, a metal roof reflects heat away from homes and commercial buildings rather than absorbing it. Depending on the installation method, metal roofing can save as much as 40% on energy costs.
Is a metal roof expensive?
While the upfront cost of a metal roof is more than an asphalt shingle roof, metal roofing lasts 2-3 times as long as shingles. For homeowners planning to stay in their homes more than 10-115 years, a metal roof could be the last one they buy. And of course, this doesn’t include the money saved on insurance premiums, storm damage repairs and energy bills, thanks metal roofing’s durability.
Does metal roofing attract lighting?
According to the Metal Construction Association (MCA), a metal roof is not more likely to be struck by lightning than a shingle roof. There is even evidence that suggests a metal roof may protect a building that’s struck by lighting better than asphalt shingles. Metal roofing is non-combustible and has a Class A fire-resistance rating, the highest rating, so it’s not going to catch fire if it’s struck by lightning.
Is metal roofing easily damaged by hail?
Metal roofs handle hail surprisingly well. In fact, they’re less likely than traditional asphalt shingles to be dented, torn or punctured by hailstones.
Can you attach solar panels to a metal roof?
Absolutely! In fact, solar installers consider standing seam metal roofs one of the easiest roofing materials for installing solar panels. Not only is metal roofing strong enough to support the solar array and mounting hardware, but the standing seams allow the solar panels to be attached without drilling holes in the roof.
