Does Metal Roofing Absorb Heat Easily?

 

Metal is a good heat conductor, but also it’s an outstanding reflector. This means that it can just as easily release heat as it can absorb it. This prevents heat from entering your home, which translates to less burden on your HVAC system and big energy savings.

 

Are Metal Roofs Noisy in the Rain?

 

Metal roofing systems nowadays are installed with underlayment, insulation and decking, which absorbs the sound of rain. You’ll find that your metal roof is no noisier during a rainstorm than any other type of roof.

 

Is It True That Metal Roofs Attract Lightning?

 

No. Metal does conduct electricity, but it doesn’t attract it. A metal roof is no more likely to be struck by lightning than any other type of roof. In the unlikely event your metal roof is struck by lightning, it’s actually safer than other roofing materials because metal is non-combustible.
