Myth 1: Metal Roofs will Increase the Chances of Lightning Hitting Your Home

It is true that metal conducts electricity but it does not mean that it is drawn to metal. Metal roofs do not combust, making it a safe roof choice for your home compared to other roofs types. Let us give you the assurance that our metal roofing in Huber Heights will not attract lightning.

Myth 2: Metal Roofs will be Noisy in the Rain

This is not true. Installed metal roofs have an existing roof and attic space beneath them. This setup keeps it from making any noise during the rain. In fact, this may be quieter compared to other roofs. In addition, our metal roofs shed rain very well, preventing it from entering your home.

Myth 3: Metal Roofs Are Vulnerable to Hail Damage

Very large hailstones may cause impact damage on metal roofs but normal-sized hail will not. When it comes to textured roofs, minor dents becomes a small issue because they are not visible. We provide metal roofs that are strong and will last for a long time.

Myth 4: Walking On Metal Roof Is Not Possible

You can walk on a metal roof but knowing how to walk on it is a different story. You can rely on us to show you how to walk on your metal roof as part of our roofing services in Kettering.

Myth 5: Metal Roofs Are Colder During Winter

The truth is that metal roofs do not affect the temperature of a typical vented attic during the cold months. The insulation in your attic floor is what keeps you warm. Our metal roofs do a great job of shedding snow, preventing it from building up on your roof and causing discomfort in your home.
