While metal roofing is a great option for a new roof replacement my homeowners opt against it due to myths that make it an undesirable option. Let’s go over a few myths that often keep owners from purchasing wisely.
Metal roofs are more susceptible to rust and corrosion. Many believe that this type of material will rust or corrode easily when it rains. However, not all metal rusts, and most metal roofs are created with corrosion- and rust-resistant metals.
Metal roofs are more easily damaged by hail. This is another common myth when the reality is that this material has higher-impact resistance than most other materials.
Metal roofs mean hotter homes in the summer. It’s very common for people to think that metal roofs will heat the home faster, but this material reflects much of the heat from the sun rather than absorbing it. In fact, the average metal roof is about 100 degrees F cooler than the average asphalt roof.
