At Top Roof Restoration Adelaide, we are avid enthusiasts of metal roofing as it’s quite possibly the most optimal roofing material option that has an excellent overall portfolio in terms of service.
Yes, shingles are relatively cheaper and great but they just can’t compare to the completely superior performance of a metal roof. Be it durability, lifetime or protection to your home, metal roofing is simply the better option here. It is important to understand that a home is generally the most expensive investment for people, it is easy to see why it is wise to go for a roofing material that has a naturally high lifetime and would stand the test of time.

Frankly, this infuriates us as metal is arguably one of the best roofing solutions for any house in and around Adelaide. That’s why we decided to write this blog in order to eliminate these myths once and for all and reassure you about your decision to install a metal roof for your beautiful home.
Top 5 Roof Restoration and Roof Repair Myths Busted!
Here are myths that we are going to bust for good!
Myth #1: Metal roofs are out of fashion
Many people picture metal roofs as ancient or outdated. That is so untrue. This can be attributed to the fact that while new building materials, trends and technological advancements will come here and there, they still don’t beat out the tremendous value in terms of finances and quality that you avail from using a metal roof for your house.
Myth #2: Metal roofs make the rest of your house look odd
People believe that metal roofs don’t sync well with the rest of your house and steal away the spotlight. But that isn’t the case at all! You see, metal roofs actually sync very well with the rest of the house. These roofs come in a wide variety of textures and styles, which we can customise to fit your needs and budget.
Myth #3: Shingles are the way to go
Shingles are massively popular because they’re cheap to purchase and quick to install. Also, almost everyone uses shingles and so people often opt for them only due to the sense of familiarity. You may ask why you local home builders also have a preference for shingles? Well that is because the use of shingles let them hire cheap workers for building projects as their installation requires relatively lower skill and workmanship when compared to installing a metal roof.
It should be noted that shingles are clearly inferior to metal roofs in many ways as listed below:
- They aren’t long-lasting
- Vulnerable to damage by the elements of nature
- They’re not eco-friendly
- Low energy efficiency leads to higher electricity bills
Myth #4: Metal roofs get extremely hot in summer
The weather in Adelaide can get hot and you would assume that metal roofs inherently get hot, consequently making the interior of your home hotter. However, you would be surprised to learn that shingles get hotter than metal roofs in the heat of summer. This can be attributed to two very important properties of metal roofs that make them extremely energy efficient, actually making your rooms cooler in summer.
The first property is reflectivity. This simply means that sunlight that hits the metal roofs reflects back. Secondly, they possess high emissivity. This means that they deflect the sunlight instead of absorbing it. While the metal roof would be hot, it’s not because of absorbed heat. Rather, it’s taking in all the heat from the sunlight and giving it back immediately.
Myth #5: Metal roofs are noisy when it rains and I won’t be able to relax
For starters, the noise produced when rain hits the metal roof is white noise. Some people actually find the sound soothing and they are able to relax and even sleep more peacefully.
However, if you find the sound of rain on your metal roof bothersome, fret not! With proper installation methods such as adding padding material layers between the metal and the roof decking, you will be able to effectively cancel out any noise.
