Is metal roofing noisier in bad weather?
We get this question asked the most and has probably one of the biggest misconceptions about metal roofing. People often think of a barn roof where the metal is visible to the interior of the structure. On a home or residence, however, metal roofing is installed over a solid wooden substrate. Added to this is the usual home insulation which serves as an additional sound barrier. Research has proven that metal is not any noisier than traditional roofing products.
Do I have to remove the old roof first?
Usually not if you’re installing the metal roof over existing asphalt, or composition shingles (please note that these should only be a maximum of two layers thick). In most situations, the metal roof can be installed directly over the old roof with a synthetic underlayment or felt paper. Another option is 1″ x 4″ wood purlins can also be used instead of underlayment.
What types of payments do WRP accept?
We accept the usual credit cards, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, plus Cash, or Check.
How is a metal roof in extreme weather?
What colors are available?
Our metal roofing is painted with a Sherwin-Williams WeatherXL™ coating, a unique silicone-modified polyester (SMP) resin system. Subsequently, it’s especially resilient for residential, agricultural, and commercial construction industries. Here is a link to our color chart in case you missed it: CLICK HERE
Will the color fade?
Over time you might notice a slight change in color due to the settling of airborne contamination, but occasional rain or washing the roof with a garden hose will keep the roof looking like new.
What is galvalume?
Galvalume is 55% Al-Zn (aluminum – zinc) coated sheet steel that is ideally suited for most types of roofing applications. Galvalume is an ideal material for roofing because of its extraordinary outdoor corrosion resistance and resulting long life. It is extremely popular due to its versatility, ease of use, aesthetics, and long-term performance.

Will a metal roof rust?
Galvalume-coated steel roofing panels are protected by layers of metallic and paint polymer coatings. Industry studies have repeatedly shown them to outperform the corrosion resistance of other coated metals.

Does a metal roof attract lightning?
Lightning is attracted to the highest point. It doesn’t need to be metal as trees are often hit as an example. So, a metal roof has no greater chance of being hit by lightning than any other type of roof. However, there is an upside to having a metal roof, if your roof were struck by lightning, it can help prevent your home from catching on fire because it can dissipate the electrical charge rather than being in one point.
Will a metal roof make my house hot?
Actually, a metal roof can save you money on your AC costs because it has a higher heat reflectivity than other roofing products like asphalt shingles, tile, etc. During the summer it makes buildings cooler by efficiently reflecting away sunlight and reducing the amount of heat transmitted into the building (TSR value – Total solar reflectance). Likewise, it makes buildings warmer in the winter by reflecting inside heat from the underside of the roof back into the building. This good thermal reflectivity translates into energy savings by reducing cooling costs in the summer and heating costs in the winter.
