8 Interesting Facts About Roofing

Published On December 12 , 2023

Okay, so you might be wondering, “Why should I care about roofs?” Well, hear us out—roofs are pretty cool, and here’s why you, as a homeowner or anyone else, should know some nifty stuff about them.

Metal Roofs and Lightning:

People often think metal roofs attract lightning, but that’s not true! In fact, metal roofs can actually protect your home because they don’t catch fire easily.

Flat Roofs Aren’t Truly Flat:

You know those “flat” roofs? They’re not completely flat; they have a slight slope that helps water run off. No puddles up there!

Roofs and Selling Your Home:

If your roof is a bit wonky, selling your home might be trickier. You don’t always need a whole new roof, but be ready for lower offers or even losing a sale if your roof needs some TLC.

Metal Roofs Save on Bills:

Metal roofs aren’t just tough; they’re smart with energy. They reflect heat away, saving you around 40% on energy bills. Nice on your wallet and the planet!x

Roofs That Outlive You:

A well-cared-for roof can last longer than you live in your house. We’re here to help you take good care of it with repairs and maintenance.

Shingles for Weather:

Shingles come in different colors. Light ones keep your home cool in hot places, while dark ones soak up heat, perfect for chilly spots.

Shingles Get a Second Life:

Guess what? Shingles can be recycled! That means old roofs can have a new purpose, which is great for the environment.

Vents Need to Breathe:

Those spinny vents on your roof? Don’t cover them, even in winter. They help your attic stay comfy and stop mold and pests from setting up shop.


In a nutshell, roofs are more than just covers for our homes. They affect safety, bills, and how much you get for your place. Stay in the know, and if you ever need help with your roof, we’ve got your back at Forever Slate!
