Metal Myth 3.
A metal roof will make my home even hotter in the summer.
Metal roofs are extremely energy efficient. Even basic, unpainted metal roofs reflect more solar radiation than asphalt. Commonly called “cool roofs,” the amount of heat absorbed into the house is limited and, in most cases, less than other roofing materials. In addition, what heat is absorbed by the “cool roof” will quickly dissipate meaning less heating and cooling is required.”
Metal Myth 4.
A metal roof will be really loud when it rains.
When installed correctly, a metal roof is as quiet as an asphalt roof. A combination of attic space, insulation, and proper installation methods are important to reduce noise transmission for any roof, no matter what the material type.
