We recently got a comment on our Facebook page that asked, “Do you install metal roofs?”
The answer is yes, but we don’t always recommend it…
Here’s Steve’s 3 reasons why we advise against them:
- They are apt to leak within 15 years. The fasteners that are exposed all over these roofs have little rubber gaskets that the sun bakes the life out of. This causes leaks.
- They tend to look very commercial. Sometimes, people will put a metal roof on their home and it could almost look like they opened a business!
- There is a potential safety issue. In the winter, the snow tends to build up more on metal roofs, then all of a sudden it comes off the roof as quickly as an avalanche, which could be extremely dangerous.
