Will a metal roof make my house hot?
Actually, a metal roof can save you money on your a/c costs because it has a higher heat reflectivity than other roofing products like asphalt/fiberglass shingles, wood, tile, etc. During the summer it makes buildings cooler by efficiently reflecting away sunlight and reducing the amount of heat transmitted into the building. Likewise, it makes buildings warmer in the winter by reflecting inside heat from the underside of the roof back into the building. This good thermal reflectivity translates into energy savings by reducing cooling costs in the summer and heating costs in the winter.

How does the cost of a metal roof cost compare to other roofs?
Metal roofs are a premium product. Although initial costs for a metal roof manufactured from high performance pre-painted steel maybe slightly higher when compared to roofs made from other materials, substantial long-term savings can be realised over a period of time (i.e. life-cycle cost analysis). This is because metal roofs will outlast any asphalt/fiberglass shingle or concrete tile roof. Additionally, metal roofs have many advantages and benefits over asphalt / fiberglass shingle roofs.
