Metal roofing has other advantages as well. It doesn’t heat up as much, which will lower your AC bills. It’s more lightweight than other forms of roofing of its strength — It usually weighs 50 to 150 pounds per 100 square feet. With standing seam roofs, the most popular type of metal roofing, the seams are few and raised, reducing potential leaks. In some states, a metal roof can cut your insurance premiums by up to 35 percent.
A metal roof is no more likely to be hit by lightning than any other kind of roof, but when combined with a lightning rod will conduct lightning into the ground without being damaged by it. Even without the lightning rod, it will spread the heat and energy over the whole house instead of allowing any one part of it to superheat.
