Before you decide whether or not a metal roof is best for your needs, you should consider both the advantages and disadvantages of these roofs.

Metal roofs are very lightweight and, therefore, are easy to move and install.

Metal is durable and metal roofs will last for many years, often as long as the house stands.

Fire Resistance Ratings are defined as Class A, Class B, and Class C. The majority of metal roofs are usually given Class A ratings.

They help retain energy and heat, saving you money on energy bills.

Since safety is the primary concern when considering roofing materials, it is easily understandable why many people prefer metal roofs over other
materials.

Because metal roofs are available in a wide variety of styles, colors and sizes, they are a great way to ensure that your roof looks great and matches the exterior decor of your home.

On the flip side, there are some disadvantages associated with metal roofs. They cost more than other roofs, especially copper. But because metal roofs are worth more, they will increase the property value of your home.

The last disadvantage to consider is noise. If you choose a metal roof, you must discuss your options with your contractor regarding noise prevention. Typically, the contractor will install the metal roof over plywood to ensure that it is sound proof.
