Does Metal Roofing Get Hot In The Summer?
Let’s start by looking at why metal roofs can be prone to getting hot in the sun. Unlike traditional asphalt shingle roofs which absorb sunlight and then release it slowly as heat, metal reflects most of the sun’s rays off its surface. This means that instead of being absorbed into the material itself, much of the energy from these rays is reflected away from your house – resulting in higher temperatures outside but not inside.
Fortunately, there are several ways to stop this heat reflection from becoming an issue. Modern technologies such as solar reflectance coating (Alunar Coating Ssystem) can significantly reduce the amount of heat transferred from a metal roof during peak hours. Additionally, adding insulation or ventilation systems can further promote cooling within your attic space and keep things comfortable even when the temperature rises outdoors.
Our customers enjoy the many advantages of owning a lifetime roof:
- Eliminates the Future Costs of re-roofing again and again.
- Have a Lifetime Limited Warranty – Non-ProRated 50-Year Transferable to a second homeowner.
- Get Peace of Mind – You won’t have to worry about replacing your roof.
- A Lifetime of Beauty and Protection from extreme weather.
Why spend money again and again on “remove and replace” roofing that can fail in as little as 8 years’ time?

Frequently Asked Questions
Will a metal roof make my home uncomfortably hot in the summer?
No, a properly ventilated metal roof will not make your home uncomfortably hot in the summer. Ventilation helps to keep the attic and home cooler.
Can I reduce the heat absorbed by my metal roof in the summer?
Yes, choosing a light-colored metal roof and applying a reflective coating can help reduce the heat absorbed by your metal roof in the summer.
Is a metal roof more energy-efficient in the summer than other roofing materials?
Yes, a metal roof is more energy-efficient in the summer than other roofing materials due to its reflective properties, which can reduce the amount of energy needed to cool your home.
How does a metal roof compare to an asphalt shingle roof in the summer?
A metal roof is typically cooler than an asphalt shingle roof in the summer because it reflects more sunlight and heat.
Will my metal roof warp or expand in extreme heat?
No, a properly installed metal roof will not warp or expand in extreme heat. Metal roofing is designed to expand and contract with temperature changes.
