Metal Roofing Myths: Separating Fact from Fiction

Preconceived notions are dangerous for homeowners choosing a new roof.
For some, there is a common misconception they must forego safety over style.

Why not have both?

Today’s Homeowner debunks some of the most common myths about metal roofing. Plus, we nail down some interesting facts you may not have heard along the way.

Metal Myth 1.

A metal roof will make my home look like an industrial building or a barn.


Metal roofing not only comes in a wide number of colors, but it can also fit just about any architectural style.

Metal roofs can mimic the look of shakes, slate and clay tile. This gives homeowners the flexibility to shape the home to fit their style, and still achieve exceptional durability and performance.

Once a style is chosen it can be customized with a wide range of color options.

Copper, titanium, and stainless steel are popular among homeowners looking for that one-of-a-kind look.

Metal Myth 2.

A metal roof will easily dent in extreme weather conditions.


Metal roofs are the preferred and most durable choice for combating everything Mother Nature throws at a roof.

A metal roof can protect a home from hurricane-force winds, hold up under heavy snow and ice, and offer wildfire protection.

Metal roofing also performed best against hailstorms, withstanding even golf ball-sized hailstones without compromising performance.

Bonus Fact:

A common misconception is that metal roofs attract lightning more than others.

Actually, a metal roof isn’t any more likely to be struck by lightning than any other roof. If a metal roof home is struck, the electricity will be safely transferred to the ground so no occupants will be harmed.
