Frequently Asked Questions About Metal Roofs

Metal roofs continually remain one of the premiere options available for both commercial and residential applications. We’ve already listed the benefits associated with this roof material; now, we’d like to provide you with the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding it:





How do I choose from the myriad of options:

Because metal roofs come in a myriad of options (including the materials copper, zinc, steel, aluminum, and titanium, along with a host of different styles), it can be hard to choose the right one for you. So much goes into this that your roofer will need to discuss it with you personally to find the right choice.

Can I have skylights with my roof?

Yes. While any protrusions will need flashings installed around them, they can easily be installed. Most roofers suggest that a new skylight should get installed if the old one has been there over 10 years old when you get your new roof.

Can I walk on my roof?

Yes, because of their durable nature, metal roofs can be walked on. However, walking on a roof always remains a dangerous activity; exercise caution when on top of your roof.
