Are They Loud
This all comes down to your preferences. In some cases, our clients love the sound of rain on their metal roofs, but others simply can not stand it. We would however like to state that metal roofing solutions are not as loud as one might think, especially when they are properly insulated. This will greatly decrease and in some cases eliminate the noise. Many people associated this noise with tin roofs, and we can assure you that this is not the case when using our world-class metal solutions. Give us a shout today for more information.
By far one of the biggest myths and misconceptions regarding metal roofs is that they somehow can attract lightning. First and foremost, lightning will always look for the path with the least resistance, so it's all about height, not the material being used. Now even if you do suffer a direct hit, metal roofs are great conductors of electricity and they are a non-combustible material. All this adds up to the fact that lighting should be the last thing you are worried about. If you would like to know more, you know what to do.
It is a commonly known fact that your metal roofing solution will provide a high level of fire resistance, up to a certain point of course. Now the roofing industry uses different classes to rate different materials when it comes to their ability to handle fire, and we are proud to report that metal gets a class A rating in this regard. We would however just like to stress that they are not fireproof, and the amount of damaged caused will depend on how hot, and how long the fire is allowed to burn. We hope this provides you with the answers you need.
