As a homeowner it is always safe to look around at different options when it is time for a replacement. This is the same for new kitchen cabinets or even a new roof. If you are considering a metal roof for you home, barn, or garage then it’s important to understand what its pro and cons are. Read below to learn a little more about metal roofing.

Metal Roofing Pros:

Its weight: Metal roofing is extremely lightweight weighing anywhere between 100-150 pounds per square. This often makes installation easier and also puts far less home on the rest of your house.

Energy Savings: Metal roof systems are energy efficient because they reflect solar heat which can cut back on your A/C bill.

Fire resistant: In the event that your house is to get struck by lightening or get exposed to extreme heat, you’ll be as safe as possible with a metal roof.

Durability: Metal roofs are extremely durable and are extremely popular for people taking longevity into consideration.

Metal Roofing Cons:

Cost: If money is extremely tight for you, than Metal Roofing may not be the best solution for you. It is fairly expensive as you should expect a large investment.

Noise: While some may enjoy a nice tap of rain above them but many others don’t. As you can expect with metal roofing, noise will be a factor. The noise can be controlled to a level but it certainly wont be as quite as many other roofing solutions.

Access: If you were to get up on your roof and take a look at it, you’d have much¬†more¬†difficulties compared to other roofing solutions.
