#2 – Metal roofs can be dented.

Metal roofs are designed to withstand decades of extreme weather like heavy storms and snow, which slide right down the metal slope of the metal roofs and then linger on it and cause leakage. However, some metal roofs can be dented by large hail or falling branches. If this virtue is a deal breaker for you, we can suggest to you roofing materials that come on the heavier and stronger side instead of lighter, softer ones such as aluminium and copper.  Now spray colours of the same shades are available and can be applied at the place where scratches or dents appear.

#3 – Metal roofs can be noisy.

This drawback, in particular, does not truly come under being one of the cons of metal roofs. Yes, it is a fact that metal roofs can be noisier than other types of roofing, especially when we refer to heavy rains or thunderstorms. But extra layers of solid sheathing or insulation installed beneath the same will reduce the sound heard inside the construction.

Noise created by rain on metal roofs can be avoided by insulating it from bottom either with PUF or with EPS insulation.
