What are some of the benefits of metal roofs?

Are metal roofs noisy?

This is probably the main question that we get from our customers. Our metal roofing is installed over a solid substrate, unlike barn panel roofs. This helps act as a sound barrier. In addition, attic space and insulation also act as sound barriers. Metal roofing is not any nosier than traditional roofing systems.

Are metal roofs expensive?

Metal roofing offers homeowners a long-life solution. It is an investment in your home’s future. Over the life of your home, metal roofing is probably the most economical material, because it can be the last roof you need to install. Traditional roofing materials have a very limited life expectancy before one is faced with the expense of another re-roof project.

How long will my metal roof last?

Won’t it make my house too hot or too cold?
