When you’re making a decision like getting your roof replaced, it’s best to have both sides to the story on what type of material you will have the Fort Collins roofing company use. In our last blog, we talked about the pros of having a metal roof installed. In this blog, we’ll address the drawbacks of having a metal roof on your house. With this information, we hope that you will evaluate your options and the pros and cons of metal roofs

  • Metal roofs can cost more to be installed. When you consider the cost per year compared to an asphalt shingle roof, it goes down considerably over the lifetime of the roof.

  • Metal roofs can be noisier than shingles. During heavy rain or a hail storm, the rain can be noisy in the home, however, this noise can be reduced through adding additional insulation during the roof replacement, simply speak to your roof replacement company. Contrary to it being “noisy” some people find the sound of the rain on a metal roof relaxing and soothing.

  • Metal roofs are attached as large sheets. They need to be installed correctly because they can expand and contract with the weather. If they are not installed and maintained properly, it can allow a loosening of the fasteners.

  • Again, if roofs are installed improperly or if they are installed with poor materials, it can cause damage if water pools on the roof or if the panels are less durable and bent more easily.
