While we at Trilogy Exteriors love all of our products and services, we have a soft spot for our metal roofing. The pros of metal over other roofing materials are extraordinary, ranging from durability to environmental friendliness. However, as with all things, there are still potential cons to metal roofing. Today, we are going to do a deep dive into some of the more prevalent myths surrounding metal roofing and explain how we debunk them with our metal roofing installation team.
CON: Metal roofing is more expensive than other options.
While more expensive to start, the benefits of metal roofing are sure to save you money in the long term. Thanks to its durability, repairs are needed far less often. Additionally, metal roofing can also help save you money on your electricity bill by reflecting the sun away from the home and driving down cooling costs. With these two money-saving traits in mind, we believe that the upfront cost of metal roofing is often worthwhile.
CON: Metal roofing expands and contracts, rusts, and dents.
At Trilogy Exteriors, we are transparent with our customers when it comes to important decisions, such as replacing their current shingles with metal roofing. While some metals fall victim to the elements far easier than others, we can work with you on an individual basis to ensure that your residential metal roofing installation is of the highest quality. We also make sure our installations are done with the highest level of care, making many of these issues obsolete.
CON: Metal is far noisier than other roofing.
Banging pots and pans is noisy, so you’d expect metal roofing to be just as noisy, if not more. While it will be noisier when it comes to precipitation and hard weather conditions, the difference compared to traditional roofing may not be so noticeable if we thoroughly insulate it. Adding additional insulation will add more cost to the installation overall, but many homeowners find that the extra expense is worthwhile. If the price is not too much, dampening the roof noise can give you the quietness of more traditional roofing with the peace of mind of metal roofing.
Metal roofing is not something for every household. It’s initially expensive, can be noisier, and if the installation is done poorly, it can cause more harm than good. With this in mind, we here at Trilogy Exteriors can assure you that the work our metal roofing installation contractors do throughout Bucks County is of the highest quality.
