5 Metal Roof Myths Uncovered

When it comes to choosing the type of roof for your house, you have so many options to choose from.  If you read our blog from two weeks ago, you've already heard about the many advantages metal roofs provide. However, you may have also heard some things about metal roofs that make you second guess the choice. As your Lake of the Ozarks roofer, we have decided to focus on 5 common myths about metal roofs this week.  MetalRoofing.com has some great information about these myths!  

Lightning


Contrary to popular belief, a metal roof will not increase the likelihood of lightning striking your home. However, if your home were struck by lightning, the metal roof would disperse the energy safely throughout the structure.  Since metal roofing isn't combustible or flammable, its a low risk and desirable option, especially where severe weather such as lightning is concerned.

Rust


Steel metal roofing has a "metallic coating" made of either zinc or a combination of zinc and aluminum making them built to last!  The metallic coating is bonded to the steel at the factory to prevent rust from forming. Then paint is applied over the metallic coating to provide the long-lasting color you desire for your roof at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Durability


Many people think that you can't walk on a metal roof without damaging it. This is incorrect; you can safely walk on any metal roof.   However, we recommend you talk to your installer or roof manufacturer before walking on it.  They will be able to provide details on how to walk on the particular roof that you have based on the style and pitch of the roof.

Noise


A common misconception is that a metal roof is noisier than other types of roofing.  The truth though, is that when installed with metal sheathing, a metal roof on your home will actually silence the noise from bad weather such as rain and hail.  Sometimes it will work even better to reduce the noise than other roofing materials.  

Dents


In most cases, a metal roof can withstand decades of extreme weather such as hail and heavy snow. The systems build today even have a 150-mph wind rating which is equal to an F2 tornado!  This means your metal roof is also safe from the wind gusts that can accompany hail storms.
