Unlike shingles roofs, metal roofs can survive through severe weather conditions. Most metal roof systems have undergone UL 2218 Impact Resistance testing at the Class 4 – the most severe level. Basing on the results of this testing some insurance companies give discount to homeowners who choose metal roofing. The best thing about metal roof is that it will protect your home from hail the same in 50 or more years as it does when it’s new.

A metal roof system proved to be remarkably effective in withstanding winds. Long metal sheets cover the entire area between the ridgeline and the eaves. This prevents wind from penetrating and tearing up. Conversely, shingle and small tile roofs are made up of many smaller pieces between which the wind can easily enter and cause damage.

The metal roof materials are non-combustible, that is why they are typically give a Class A fire rating (the highest fire-resistance rating for roofing as per ASTM E-108). It means the metal roof can be severely exposed to fire coming from outside the building.

In a nutshell, yes, metal roof does need an underlayment. Choosing the proper underlayment for a metal roofing will result in optimal roof performance and can play an important role in extending the life of the building it protects.

A typical roof underlayment helps to prevent leakage due to heavy rains or under snow melting conditions. An upgraded roof underlayment solution is often used to protect from ice dam leakage. There are also high temperature underpayments to consider. In most cases the profiled tile panels are installed right onto existing shingle roof.

This sound intensity corresponds to a regular conversation at home.
