Triad Installations specializes in residential metal roofsNot many people are knowledgeable about roofs, much less metals roofs or metal barn roofs. The old notion is that metal roofs are undesirable due to some misconceived ideas that have not been properly resolved. People who are familiar with the amazing benefits of metal roofing truly appreciate this material for all kinds of roofing needs in Kernersville, NC. The following are the most common misconceptions about metal roofs and metal barn roofs:

  • There is no truth to the idea that metal roofs have increased likelihood of getting struck by lightning than other roofing materials. Lightning often strikes the highest point in an area and not your metal roof or meal barn roof. If your roof is the highest point in your vicinity, you can install a lightning arrester. But if ever your metal roof is struck by lightning, the roofing material will harmlessly disperse the charge. Metal roofs are highly resistant to sparks or fire while other roofing materials may possibly catch fire when struck by lightning.
  • Metal barn roofs in the past made real noise much like a machine gun burst when it rains. Today’s metal roofs are installed on solid plywood sheathing which forms the roof deck, which effectively reduces the noise level. The resulting sound is no louder than that of asphalt or wood shingles.
  • While it is true that metals rust, metal roofs including metal barn roofs are built to last for a long time. Steel used for metal roofs are coated with protective layers of zinc or aluminum and superior-quality paint to resist rust while providing the radiant colors and stunning beauty that many home and barn owners look for in roofing materials.
  • Contrary to beliefs that you cannot walk on your metal roof or metal barn roof without causing damage or dents, metal roofs can easily support human weight when walked upon. Just like walking on any roof, however, you need to be careful when walking on your metal roof. Your friendly Kernersville metal roofing contractor can provide you with useful tips on how to walk on your metal roof safely.
