5V Metal Roofing

There are several myths about a metal roof including that they are “noisy” when it rains.  Metal roofs are applied on top of a self-adhering membrane – Polystik  - for added moisture prevention.  This rubberized membrane is placed on top of a plywood substrate - and the combination of the two - significantly abates noise.  Click here for answers to other common new metal roofing questions.
