When you need to learn about a new subject, where do you turn?

Do you visit the library, ask your friends, or Google? Many people turn to Google first with their questions. While Googling is great for getting a quick answer, sometimes you need a local authority on the matter.

With this in mind, here are several of the most popular questions the internet has about metal roofing and our answers for Kentucky homeowners.

Is a metal roof worth it?

To answer this question, you need to think about the total cost of owning your roof. When you buy a roof, you pay for the materials and installation, but you also pay for future maintenance and eventual replacement. While metal roofing costs more to install than asphalt shingles, it won’t require maintenance or replacement as quickly as an asphalt roof and is much more energy-efficient. If you examine the total cost, a metal roof is more expensive at first but is an investment that pays off in the long-term.

Does a metal roof make your house hotter?

No. A metal roof cools your house down. Our high-quality metal roofs have a reflective coating that bounces heat from the sun away from your house. They reduce your energy costs by up to 20% yearly and drop the temperature of your attic. While asphalt shingles make your home hotter, especially in the summer, metal roofing cools things down.

How does Classic metal roofing deal with wind and hail?

Our metal roofing stands up to high winds and hail, and  A properly can face winds of over 100 mph and remain intact. Hail does far less damage to our metal roofs as well, with most hail causing no damage.
