Choosing a material for your roof replacement is arguably one of the toughest decisions you’ll make during the entire process. The wide variety of choices on the market makes it difficult to pick the best one for your home. Fortunately, you can limit your choices by focusing on three essential features: durability, energy efficiency, and beauty.
Joe Ward Enterprises can give you all that with an installation of a quality metal roof. While this material offers numerous benefits unmatched by others, the myths surrounding it makes homeowners reluctant about investing in one.
To help you decide, here are some popular metal roofing myths debunked:
They Are Loud
While metal roofs may look like they would be noisier when it rains, they are actually quieter than asphalt shingle roofs. They are installed with a solid sheathing attached to the underlayment, helping filter and reduce the noise. With a metal roof, you won’t have to worry about loud sounds coming from your roof during rain and hail.
They Attract Lightning
This myth stems from the fact that metal is a great conductor, but it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Investing in a metal roofing system won’t increase the likelihood of lightning striking your home. Lightning usually finds the tallest object to strike, so unless your home is taller than most skyscrapers, you have nothing to worry about. That said, if it did strike, the energy would be equally dispersed throughout your home’s structure. Since metal is noncombustible, it may even be safer than other roof types such as wood.
They Are Not Versatile
This might be true decades ago, but today, metal roofs come in a wide variety of colors, textures, and designs that would suit any home style. You will find that their color selection rivals that of any other popular roofing material. Moreover, with metal roofing, you can choose colors that are ENERGY STAR®-rated as “cool”, helping you reduce energy expenses.
