Yes, but like with any roof, care should always be taken.
A study by the Acoustic Group found that the sound from a metal roof was only 6 decibels greater than that of a conventional asphalt roof. With ABC Roofing’s four-way locking and fastening system and the proper underlayment, this roof will not contribute to additional noise.
Although ABC Roofing may cost more initially, an ABC Roofing metal roof should never need to be replaced. Therefore, it should be less expensive over the life of your home. Common asphalt shingles have a shorter life span. They will need to be replaced periodically because the average lifespan of an asphalt roof in Ohio is 15-20 years under the best conditions. So they will be more expensive over the life of your roof.
ABC Roofing Shakes and Slate are designed to withstand the impact of most hail storms. Their double embossed panels made of 28 gauge steel will help minimize hail damage. They are covered by a hail protection warranty, carry the highest hail protection rating – class 4 – and are approved by many insurance companies for reduced homeowners insurance rates.
The metal used in manufacturing ArrowLine Shingle-Shakes will reflect the majority of the rays from the sun and therefore minimizes any heat build-up in your attic. This means that you could actually have a cooler attic when combined with proper ventilation.
ArrowLine Shingle-Shakes should be the last roof system that you ever buy. ArrowLine Shingle-Shakes are designed to withstand the northern regions’ extreme cold and the southern states’ blistering heat. ArrowLine Shingle-Shakes carry a Lifetime Non-Prorated Limited Warranty.
Most major building code organizations do not require the grounding of metal siding and roofing. Some local building codes might require it, so check with the local inspectors before starting the job.
