Asphalt shingles grace millions of homes across the country, but if you’re looking for a roofing alternative that is just as exceptional, you should definitely consider metal roofing. This particular option is not only sleek and tough; it’s also eco-friendly.
1. Superior Energy Performance
Did you know that metal roofing can help keep your home naturally cool and comfortable? This is possible due to its inherent reflective properties, which reduces the amount of solar heat transmission into your home. Because you’ll rely less on your air conditioning system, you can save a considerable amount of energy. Its reflective capacity, in fact, can be further maximized with the right color or coating.
2. Extreme Durability
Metal roofing is lightweight, which makes them easier and faster to install. Despite this fact, however, this roof choice is incredibly durable. It can withstand almost all weather conditions, from heavy downpours and blistering heat to high wind speeds. The solidity of metal roofing allows for a longer lifespan, which in turn, reduces the frequency of roof replacement and all the possible landfill waste it generates.
3. Full Recyclability
Compared to other roofing choices, metal roofing is completely recyclable. That’s why it won’t end up in a landfill at the end of its 50-year lifespan. After the removal of its binding substances, the old panels, tear-off sections and leftover scraps of a metal roof can be recycled and used in future metal products, including furniture, appliances, cans and even plumbing.
