Metal roofing is today among the most widely used roofing materials. But you must consider its advantages and disadvantages before hiring someone to have metal roofs installed at your home.
There are many pros to having metal roofs installed in your house. Metal roofing is extremely lightweight, which means they’re not that hard to install. Metal roofs weigh between 100 and 150 pounds per square, a massive difference from other roofing types to between 750 and 1000 pounds per square.
If you live in areas that are prone to hurricanes and tornadoes, metal roofs are a great choice too.
On the other hand, the use of metal roofing also has adversities. If you’re planning to install metal roofs, be careful that when it’s raining, it could produce noise, or something hits the roof. You can reduce this noise though by adding plywood sheathing or insulation.
