4 Misconceptions About Metal Roofs

Metal Roofs Won’t Rust

This is not true. Metal roofs are prone to rust if they are not well maintained or treated with coatings. Rust will weaken your roof and will develop holes in your metal. Rusty roofs do not always have to be done away with though, with a system like Conklin’s Metal Roof Restoration System, an old leaky, rust filled roof can become like new.

They Are Less Likely To Leak

This is also not true. Metal Roofs use fasteners to secure the metal to the roof structure. Through weathering and traffic on the roof these fasteners can become loose from the roofing structure. Once these fasteners are loose leaks are prevalent.

Metal Roofs Are Noisy

While it may surprise you, metal roofs are usually not loud, because they have solid sheathing attached to the underlayment that actually helps silence the noise from rain and hail.
 
 

Must Replace Whole Metal Roof

This is not necessarily true. Thanks to coating systems like Conklin’s Metal Roof Restoration, you may actually be able to restore your roof at fractions of the cost it would take to replace the whole roof. It can be applied more than once as the life of the roof wears.
