Frequently Ask Questions

Does a metal roof attract lightning?

A metal roof has no greater chance of being hit by lightning than any other type of roof. Lightning usually strikes the highest point in a given area, regardless of material. In the event that your roof is struck by lightning, a metal roof can actually help prevent damage by dissipating the electrical charge. Also, a metal roof is non-combustible.

Are metal roofs heavy?

It may surprise you to learn that metal roofing is typically 50% lighter than an asphalt roof, and 75% lighter than concrete tile, fiber cement shakes and slate.

Can I walk on my metal roof?

Yes, you can safely walk on a metal roof without causing damage to the panel. Metal roofing is very durable. Having a solid roof deck provides the panel extra stability to hold a person’s weight.

Are metal roofs hotter in summer?

All roofs get hot. However, metal roofs come in a variety of ‘cool’ colors that reflect solar heat. Metal also releases solar heat more quickly than asphalt shingles, actually reducing the heat load on a home.

Will my roof be noisy when it rains?

This is one of the most common misconceptions about residential metal roofing. This likely stems from a common experience of the sound that rain makes on old barns and worn buildings. The difference between a barn and residential roof is a solid wood roof deck. This roof deck combined with underlayment dampens noise, resulting in a residential metal roof that is no more or less noisy than any other type of roofing.

Choosing the right panel for your roof

Ampro Builders offers three levels of high-performance roofing panels for standard roofs and one premium option for low slope roofs. From floating clips to factory-injected sealant, you can easily choose the best product for your home. All four panels offer the exceptional value with the industry’s best paint systems, dozens of factory finish options and Ampro’s industry leading warranty.

Snap Lock – Good

Our snap lock panel is a concealed fastener, self-locking panel that eliminates attachment clips. This traditional style is a proven, economical choice featuring triangular-shaped ribs that snap into an integrated locking edge. Slotted screw edges allow for some thermal movement. Available in 12″ and 16″ widths with standard striations or intermediate pencil ribs.

Clip/Snap Lock – Best

NRM-1750 blends the best of all worlds. With an integrated locking edge, optional factory injected sealant and a floating clip attachment system, this panel can meet almost any requirement. It also meets Underwriter Laboratories’ most stringent wind tests, making it an ideal choice for any residential or light commercial project.

Clip Lock – Better

With traditional standing seam lines and 1½˝ high, narrow ribs, The Clip Lock is the perfect choice for standard home roofing. The panel’s floating clip design allows the panel to expand and contract with thermal changes. The Clip Lock meets the UL-90 standards for 120 mph winds. The panel is available in three widths with texture options to enhance visual appeal.

Low Slope – Best

If you have a low-slope roof, this option is the perfect choice. The panel features a hidden and floating clip attachment system with optional factory-injected seam seal-ant to create a watertight installation. After the panel is installed, a final power seam is made to the seal the roof. The low slope can be ordered in three widths with texture options to add visual interest.

Aesthetic Options

All of our Ampro’s metal roofing panels have multiple visual options from which to choose. Striations are our standard option, being the most popular texture, followed by traditional pencil ribs. There are no up-charges for any of these options and are offered to help you achieve your design goals.


Our most popular option, striations give a touch of elegance to any roofing panel. Striations have the ability to iron out inconsistencies and waviness in the roofing panels that are caused by uneven roof structures.

Pencil Ribs

Two to four optional pencil ribs is a great way to add visual interest to your roof. Pencil ribs also reduce the amount of waviness in the panel on wider widths that can be caused by an uneven roof structure.

Caring for the Environment

At Ampro our residential metal roofing system panels are made with a minimum of 30% recycled steel. This means that after you have enjoyed your new professionally installed metal roofing system for the next 40 to 50 years; nearly 100% of the panel materials can be recycled! With steel being the number one recycled material on earth this means less impact on the environment and your wallet.

When compared to asphalt shingles which contain petroleum products (which are rarely recycled) the options for a metal roofing system professionally installed by Ampro become a little clearer. With the study performed in 2007 by the EPA, they concluded that 11 million tons of asphalt shingle waste were generated each year in the United States. Adding to this concern is the fact that shingles manufactured prior to 1980 contain asbestos and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons which can release dangerous toxins into the environment.
