PRLog - Feb. 26, 2013 - Myths, superstitions, old wives tales…whatever you call them, they usually are made in a time when knowledge is limited. Especially for vital aspects like your home, you need to be absolutely certain on the facts.

For years, metal roofs have gotten a bad reputation from myths about their safety. Here’s the truth:

1.     Lightning Strikes are no more of a risk for your metal roof than any other roof. While it is true that metal conducts electricity, it does not attract it; in fact, it’s resistant to combustion. That actually makes a metal roof safer than some other roof types, such as those made out of wood.

2.     Noise from rain, hail, or wind-blown debris hitting the roof has a lot of homeowners shying away from metal options. But this isn’t the case: most metal roofs are actually installed over an existing space, which means there is still insulation between the metal and the interior. Metal roofs are no noisier than other roof types, and may even be quieter due to extra installation.

3.     Vulnerability to damage from hail is another concern. Homeowners see how damaged their vehicle may look after a hailstorm; but what about their metal roof? The texture on most metal roofs acts as a stabilizer, which means denting is less likely, and less noticeable when it does happen.

4.     Change in temperature means your metal roof is going to hold in heat or cold? False. The material of the roof has little effect on your home’s temperature; it’s all in the insulation for protection against rising (or dropping) temperatures.

Now that you know the truth, you may want to reconsider the benefits of a metal roof. Stylish and safe, metal might as well be the new black and worth considering as a roofing option.
