Are metal roofs noisy?
No. While it might be logical to think that a metal roof will produce a lot of noise when it rains, this is not the case. On a residential home, there will be layers upon layers of building materials between the roof and the living space, significantly reducing the noise. A metal roof is just as quiet as any other roofing material.
Are metal roofs more likely to attract lightning?
According to the Metal Construction Association, a metal roof will not make lightning more likely to strike. In fact, metal roofing actually makes lightning strikes less dangerous because they are non-combustible.

How can I maintain my gutters in the winter?
Does a leaky roof always require a replacement?
Not all leaking roofs need to be replaced, especially if the structural integrity of your roof is still intact. Unless the roof is already approaching the end of its service life, some missing or cracked shingles can be repaired and replaced without stripping off the entire roof covering. If there are multiple leaks on different areas of the roof, better to ask for professional advice from local roofing companies.
Can I repair the roof myself?
While some small roofing repair jobs can be handled by homeowners, replacing a roof undergoes a complex process that will require help from experienced professionals. Contractors spend years on education, training, and certifications to have a competent understanding of different roofing systems and how mechanical components perform together. Hiring professional roofing companies will also grant you warranty coverage on materials and installation, saving you on maintenance costs in the long run.
