How can a metal roof project for your NC home go wrong?


How can a metal roof project for your NC home go wrong?

In our years of working with North Carolina homeowners, we’ve encountered metal roof projects with all sorts of existing problems. 

Here, we’ll share 3 ways a metal roofing project can go wrong…and how to get it right the first time.

3 Ways a Metal Roof Can Go Wrong


The wrong product. Not all metal roofing is equal, and poor quality can be an issue.  

  • Many metal roofing products have manufacturing defects or are produced with low-grade materials and inferior finishes. 
  • Sometimes the product used is not right for the architecture of your home, which leads to leaks, damage, and a fair amount of ugly.
  • Poor performance in storms, heat, rain, wind, and fire impacts the durability of a metal roof.


The wrong installation.  Don’t be fooled by the wrong roofing contractor.

  • Often metal roofs are installed lacking consideration of ventilation and attic condition, resulting in an unhealthy home.
  • Exposed screws and fasteners can rust and impact the durability and performance of a metal roof.
  • Any roof is only as good as its installation, and unqualified installers and roofing contractors abound.


The wrong warranty.  Many product warranties don’t protect the investment in your home.

  • Many metal roofing warranties are no better than the cheapest roofing products. 
  • Inferior product manufacturers offer lots of fine print to explain exceptions for shoddy materials and short life.
  • Inferior contractors don’t offer workmanship warranties.  You need both product and installation warranties.
