When you think of metal roofing, your mind might immediately go to a shed or some type of industrial facility, but did you know that metal roofing is becoming more and more common in homes? A reason why many hesitate to get metal roofing is that they believe that it is going to be very noisy when there is rain or even hail. However, the truth is that a metal roof with solid sheathing is not going to be any noisier than any other roofing material out there. It is also going to be able to stand up to the elements much better than some other materials that are available. If you live in an area where wildfires are common, you wouldn’t need to worry about burning embers landing on your roof and starting a fire. You also wouldn’t need to worry about rot or moss growth.
Even though metal roofs are hardy, it is still a good practice to take good care of them, you should make sure that water doesn’t pool up on it by cleaning away debris such as leaves and fallen branches.
