How can I get a quote on a building?
Will a metal roof make my building get struck by lightning easier than a non-metal roof?
No, lightning will generally strike the tallest object and can strike any object. If however your building is struck by lightning, the roof is not combustible so a fire will not result from the lightning strike.
Are metal roofs noisy during a rainstorm?
No, as long as the metal roof is installed properly above an insulated attic, a metal roof will make no more noise than a traditional composition roof.
Why is a metal roof right for my home?
Metal roofing is much more durable than other types of roofing materials, with a very long life expectancy. Metal roofs are also low maintenance, energy efficient and available in many designer colors.
