Hello, I am in the process of getting estimates to have our house re-roofed. I would like to install a standing seam bare galvalume, but it's been difficult to locate installers for residential in the Bay Area. Today I was told that in California, a bare galvalume roof would get way too hot and melt the underlayment. Is that correct? I've noticed some of the posters to this forum are from Texas, where I suspect it gets quite a bit hotter.... Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you,

There are special High Temp underlayments. Metal is a fine choice for your area. However, you may wish to explore the full range of metal products that is available including painted products which feature heat reflective finishes.
