Cons

Longer Installation times than asphalt roofing products.  

-most common asphalt roofing shingles can be installed with inaccurate power nailers.  Metal roofing  is installed by hand using clips & fasteners, and fastners through nailing flanges.


Listening to the Rain Song

-metal roofing can have a slightly higher decibal reading than asphalt shingles during rain events.  if noise is an issue there are several ways we can dampen the noise in specific areas as needed.  Rain noise on a skylight window is louder than rain hitting a metal roof.


Vistors & Neighbors

if you dont like visitors or talking with neighbors and onlookers, a metal roof might not be for you.  Because of the beauty and colors available  in metal roofs, often times homeowners looking into roofing replacement will seek out information from other homeowners who have asthetically pleasing metal roofing installed.
