Metal roofing has been growing in popularity over the past few years, and so it’s surprising that there are so many common misconceptions out there. These false ideas can actually put off some businesses from installing a metal roof, even if it’s the best material for their particular application.

Well, fortunately we’re here to bust some of the more common myths out there today, so that you don’t have to worry about getting that metal roof installed.

  • They Don’t Suit Bad Weather

 

Many people believe that metal roofing is a bad idea simply because they don’t mix well with any form of bad weather. Some are of the firm belief that a metal roof will attract lightning, while others fear that hail will actually dent the material – but both of those ideas are completely false. Metal roofs don’t attract lightning and are actually the safest type of roof to have in the unlikely event of a lightning strike; while they are also more than strong enough to withstand a hailstorm due to their durability.

 

  • They Are Unattractive

 

Whether it’s an office block, a school or a train station- when it comes to choosing what kind of roof you want your building to have, one of the most important aspects will be making sure it looks good. As it’s something that’s being installed on the exterior to your building, it’s obviously going to be displayed for all to see, and so you’ll want it to complement the rest of the structure.

 

Many people are of the belief that metal roofing is too unattractive for commercial use, and so this can put them off it. However, nowadays metal roofs are highly customisable and can come in a range of colours. If you’re worried about the material looking a little bland, then it’s important to note that metal can even be made to imitate other types of roof.

 

  • They Are Too Expensive

 

The myth that puts off the most people from choosing to install a metal lift is the idea that they are just too expensive. When compared to other types of roofing material, then it’s true that metal roofing does incur a larger upfront cost, however you need to look at the amount you will be spending in the long run. Metal roofing requires very little maintenance and has a much longer lifespan than other materials, meaning that your premises can keep functioning as normal. Without the need to replace or constantly repair the roof, it’s clear that you’d make a huge saving in the long run.
