With its amazing benefits and unique beauty, it’s no surprise that metal is one of the most popular roofing materials on the market today. Along with its fame, however, comes some common misconceptions that may be holding you back from investing in this excellent material. Antebellum Roofworks, one of the leading local roofing contractors, sheds some light on the top myths surrounding this material.
They Attract Lightning
Arguably one of the biggest myths about metal roofs is that they are more likely to attract lightning than other roofing materials. Lightning, however, usually strikes the tallest object around. In the rare case that lightning does strike your home, regardless of your roofing material, the energy would disperse throughout the structure, making it harmless.
They Offer No Resale Value
Because of their simple structure, most homeowners believe that metal roofs provide little to no resale value. On the contrary, homes renovated with a standing-seam metal roof recoup up to 85.9% of costs according to Remodeling magazine.

They Are Loud
Since metal seems thinner than most roofing materials, it’s a common misconception that they will be noisier when it rains. Metal roofs are actually quieter than your regular asphalt shingle roof because they are installed with a solid sheathing material attached to the underlayment. It greatly reduces outside noise by acting as a sound insulator.
