Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should I consider a metal roof?

A: Metal roofing is one of the most practical roofing materials on the market today and is Sustainable Green Building. It offers a long–life alternative to problem plagued roofing materials such as asphalt, clay, wood and slate.

Q: How long does this type of metal roofing last?

A: Metal roofing has been known to perform for up to 100 years. The metal produced today has been engineered to withstand severe weather conditions and we believe it will outlast our lifetime warranty.

Q: Can this metal roofing be walked on?

A: Yes, our roofing panels can be walked on with care and attention to safety at all times.

Q: Isn’t a metal roof noisy?

A: This is a common question, and probably one of the biggest misconceptions about metal roofing. People think of an old barn roof where the metal is visible to the interior of the structure. Residential metal roofing is usually installed over solid substrate, attic space and insulation, which act as additional sound barriers. Research has proven that metal isn’t any noisier than traditional roofing products.

Q: How does this metal roof affect the growth of moss?

A: The smooth surface of our roofing panels inhibits the growth of moss and is virtually self–cleaning.

Q: Isn’t metal roofing expensive?

A: Metal roofing offers homeowners a long–life solution. It is an investment in your home’s future. Over the life of your home, metal roofing is probably the most economical material, because it will likely be the last roof you EVER need to install. Traditional roofing materials have a very limited life expectancy before one is faced with the expense of another re–roof project. One of the basic concepts of Sustainable Green Building is creating less building waste.

Q: Will this metal roofing become rusted?

A: These roofing panels are made from metal that has been specially treated with a high quality protective coating which is applied during the roll forming process, just before the paint finish is applied in order to protect the metal from oxidization.

Q: Can I install metal roofing myself vs. an authorized Stop Roofing Inc. professional installer?

A: We do not recommend installing the roof yourself. There would be no installation warranty against leaks and we do not provide a product warranty unless installed by our installers. We go to great lengths to provide a quality product and feel it should be installed by our professionals that have been trained in this product.

Q: Do I need to remove my existing roofing material?

A: One of the benefits of metal roofing is that it is lightweight, which allows it to be installed over existing roofing material. However, the answer to this question ultimately depends upon your local building code requirements and the condition of your current roof’s substructure.

Q: Is a metal roof hot?

A: Metal reflects 70% of the sun’s energy. This minimizes heat retention and as a result, less heat is transferred into the building’s structure. Research has shown that metal experienced a 34% less heat gain than asphalt shingles. Results indicate that metal roofing offers a similar effect of R–11 insulation on the top of the roof during sunny day conditions.

Q: Where can I view this metal roof?

A: Please contact us and we will provide you with a drive–by list of homes in your area to look at.
