FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT STEEL ROOFING

IS IT NOISY WHEN IT RAINS?
No, The impression of a noisy metal roof comes from light gauge metal naked to strapping,
typically in an uninsulated barn. The heavier gauge steel, more rigid panel design with underlay,
on an insulated application makes for a quiet roof.

DOES MOSS GROW ON THE ROOF?
Moss rarely grows on metal. It doesn’t have the rough surface to adhere to like on asphalt shingles or cedar shakes.

HOW CAN THE ROOF BE CLEANED?
Water and mild detergent can be used to clean dirt off the roof.

CAN YOU WALK ON THE PANELS?
Most profiles can be walked on without damaging them. Moisture or dust can cause them to be slippery,
so fall restraint equipment is recommended.

HOW MANY COLOURS ARE AVAILABLE?
There are over 40 colours in various thicknesses (gauges) and profiles to choose from.
