Top May Stories: Metal roofing myths, board and batten wall panels and safe roofing practices

RCS Top May 2024
June 2, 2024 at 6:00 a.m.

By Evelyn Witterholt. 

Here’s what’s been trending on RoofersCoffeeShop® (RCS) this past May. 

With the rising popularity of metal roofing comes common misconceptions about the material. Do metal roofs attract lightning? Are they noisy? How easily do they dent? These myths and more are busted in one of our most-read articles from last month, “Busting 5 metal roofing myths!” In this piece, Julianne Calapa of Sheffield Metals International breaks down five common myths about metal roofs and why they are not necessarily true. 

Metal roofs weren't the only popular subject in our newsroom last month. One of our most-read articles from May was a piece by Colin Murnan, also from Sheffield Metals, about their board and batten metal wall panels. These panels take the classic look of wood and board batten with all the performance that metal provides. 

Our most read article from last month was a piece by Tom Christner from Rocket Equipment, which was all about how their Trash Rocket is redefining roof safety during tear-offs. The Trash Rocket is a game changer when it comes to roof replacements because it helps remove debris efficiently, all while keeping the jobsite free of dangerous trash, like nails. 

Here are the most read articles for the month of May:
