question of a metal roof. The answer is
no. When one thinks of metal roofing
you often think of an open area where
the metal roof is seen or exposed from
the interior of the building. (A barn or
stables for example). When metal
roofing is used in residential or
commercial buildings, the attic space
and insulation acts as a sound barrier
between the living area and the roof.

Metal roofs are tough, durable
and highly resistant to hail.
Metal can withstand hail much better
than fiberglass shingles. In tests,

have to purchase.
Question - Will the color of metal
are painted with high performance
polymers. After extensive exposure
for years there may be some change in
color. Many years in the future
your metal roof may need to be painted
which costs much less than replacing a
deteriorated shingle roof.
Many metal roofs installed on homes
have lasted 80 to 100 years with
periodic maintenance. Tests have
shown that the layers or coatings - both
metallic and polymer - have shown to
outperform the corrosion resistance of
other coated metals.
