Roofing FAQs

How much does it Cost?
Cost is important! We need to take the time to show you how cost-effective and economical our metal roof is. A RUSCANA roof will outlast several asphalt roofs and, as one might expect, will cost more. Most consumers do not consider the long term cost associated with asphalt. RUSCANA roofing cost more up front, but their long life means you will actually pay less over the long term.
How long will the product last?
A RUSCANA roof will will be the last roof you will install on your home. It is a lifetime product!

Is a metal roof noisy?
No, it's not noisy. The unique design of RUSCANA roofing incorporates air space between the steel roofing and the roof deck. This space minimizes noise echoes and ensures that noise is not transfered through the roof space, insulation and drywall, a RUSCANA roof will sound no different than any other roof.

Is a RUSCANA roof durable?
It is so durable that you can walk on the roof both during and after installation with a total confidence. RUSCANA roofing will not crack, bend, warp, or peel. Our roofing give you the "strength of steel", one of the strongest, most durable and economical building materials. We provide further protection to the steel by coating the panels with zinc prior to painting, for long lasting corrosion protection.

How will weather affect the roof?
Many customers notice that their current asphalt roof begins to show signs of weathering just a few years after installation. Although this roof will remain water tight, exposure to ultraviolet light and severe weather conditions can cause the roof to suffer from discoloration, cracking, warping and blow off. The unique patented design of RUSCANA roofing combined with the proven durability of metal and our superior coating will show no signs of weathering for many years. We guarantee it!

Can it be applied over my existing roof?
Yes. RUSCANA roofing can be installed over your existing roof eliminating expensive tear-off and disposal fees.

What if I sell my house before the end of the warranty period?
If you decide to sell your home before the end of the warranty period, our Protection Plan allows the warranty to be transferred to the new owner, resulting in a higher resale value for your home.

What is a meaningful warranty?
A meaningful warranty will clearly define what is covered for how long, and against what. RUSCANA roofing warrants against manufacturer's defects and finish failure for a total of 30 years. When it comes to residential roofing, a warranty must provide protection against changes in the appearance of the product. Our protection plan does that like no other roofing product.

Can I install it myself?
Yes. Although we do not recommend the application of our product by a novice, by following our detailed installation instructions, an experienced do-it-yourselfer can install RUSCANA roofing with relative ease.

Is lightning attracted to metal roofs?
The answer is NO! It is a proven fact that lightning is attracted to the tallest object. A metal roof does not, in itself, attract lightning.
