Frequently Asked Metal Roof Questions

When you have to make a new roof installation purchase, you know that you’ve got a big decision ahead of you. You will have to live with your choice for a very long time, so you want to make sure and incorporate as much information as you can into your decision. Previously, we went over some of the benefits of metal roofs, but you may still have some more questions. We’ve answered some of the most frequently asked ones here for your benefit.






Can I install my metal roof myself?

With this roof type, you don’t want to install it yourself unless you have proficient knowledge of how to do so. If you don’t do it correctly, you will end up with bad leaks that will cost an arm and a leg to repair afterwards. If you hire a qualified professional, you know you will get it done right; you could even get warranty options.

Which type gets installed the most often?

Overall, steel roofs get installed the most often. This probably has to do with its lower cost.

Which type lasts the longest?

Of all of these roof types, copper lasts the longest; in fact, they can last centuries. However, the use of this material for roofing has become rare due to its increasingly high cost.
