Top 6 Metal Roofing Myths

Metal roofing has grown increasingly popular as an attractive and resilient option for residential and commercial buildings. Yet misconceptions and myths about it have surfaced. Milledge Roofing Company is here to dispel false beliefs, providing accurate information so you can decide whether a metal roof is right for your circumstances when working with roofing contractors.

Myth #1: Metal roofs only come in one style

Contrary to popular belief, metal roofs come in various styles and designs. While standing seam metal roofs may be best known, numerous other choices exist on the market. From imitation slate roof shingles and wooden shakes to tiles and panels, metal roofs come in multiple forms that suit various architectural styles allowing homeowners to find one that complements the aesthetics without compromising functionality.

Myth #2: They won't perform well in Georgia's extreme conditions

Georgia's climate can be challenging, with hot and humid summers, strong winds, and the occasional hurricane posing significant threats to its inhabitants. Modern metal roofing systems are specifically engineered to withstand these extreme conditions effectively. High-quality metal roofs feature special coatings that increase durability while decreasing corrosion risks; furthermore, they feature interlocking panels designed to withstand high winds better while preventing water leakage - when installed and maintained properly, they can offer outstanding performance and longevity even under Georgia's severe conditions.

Myth 3: Metal roofing will make homes more vulnerable to lightning strikes

One of the more enduring myths surrounding metal roofs is their supposed tendency to draw lightning strikes, yet this myth does not hold. Metal roofing does not attract lightning any more than other roofing materials and may be safer due to being noncombustible and not electrically conducting; should lightning strike, its energy can dissipate safely over the surface without risking further damage to buildings or their occupants.

Myth #4: Metal roofing causes deafening noise pollution

Rain hammering against a metal roof might cause one to think it creates unnecessary noise, but advancements in roofing technology have alleviated this concern. Modern metal roof systems typically include an insulation layer that acts as a sound barrier against rain or hailstorm noise - this layer acts like an effective sound-blocker; indeed, metal roofs don't sound any louder than traditional asphalt shingle roofs during rainstorms!

Myth #5: Metal roofs are too shiny

Some worry that metal roofs reflect too much sunlight, rendering them shiny. Although metal roofs naturally feature a reflective sheen, various finishes exist to meet individual preferences - matte or granular coatings may help lessen this reflection for a more subdued and traditional appearance. Homeowners have the freedom to select an amount of shine that best meets their aesthetic preferences while complementing the overall appearance of their property.

Myth #6: Installing solar panels on metal roofs can be complex

With increasing interest in renewable energy, homeowners are paying attention to installing solar panels on their roofs. Some may perceive metal roofs to make this process challenging or impossible. But in actuality, metal roofing provides an ideal surface for solar panel installation with its smooth and even surface, making mounting secure panels easy and reputable roofing contractors well versed in mounting solar panels on metal roofs seamless integration to utilize its potential as an energy source fully.
