Happy Friday TV Lovers!

This week we've got a Q&A on how roofing materials can affect antenna TV signals, what's new, deals, must-see TV, and more!

OK... now let's get to it!   

Q&A > Can Roofing Materials Affect Antenna TV Reception?

Send us your most pressing TV viewing questions via email so we can answer them in an upcoming issue.

This week's question is from Glenn who says, "We've been using an attic-mount TV antenna for several years now, but our roof needs to be redone this spring. Are there roofing materials we should avoid to make sure our antenna still works well?"

Investing in a metal roof can be tempting since they last more than twice as long as more traditional asphalt shingles.

But whereas asphalt, wood, and clay shingles do absorb some Over-the-Air TV signal reducing overall signal strength, metal will completely block signals and prevent them from reaching your antenna.

Unless Glenn is willing to relocate his antenna outdoors, he should probably stick with what is currently installed.
