The most sustainable roofing material today is metal. The cost for a metal roof includes simple installation, decades of durability, sustainability, and energy efficiency. Your new roof has a wide variety styles and colors to match every home, style, and neighborhood. What are the environmental benefits?
Why Metal Roofing is Better
Traditional asphalt roofing can deteriorate quickly in harsh environments. Cold, heavy winds, moisture, mold, rodents, and fire can all decimate an asphalt roof. Traditional roofs may last twenty years. They involve regular maintenance and replacement. Compare that to the low maintenance, durability, and relatively affordable cost for metal roof construction. Enjoy an aesthetically beautiful, fireproof, secure roof to protect your family and home.
Your metal roof will give you numerous benefits for your pocketbook and the environment, including:
- Minimal carbon footprint
- Often made from recycled materials
- Energy Efficient
- Cut energy costs by twenty percent or more
- Keep your home cooler in warm seasons
- Low weight
- Last fifty years or more
- Withstands hail and harsh weather
- Integrates with many solar panel systems
- Install new roof over old roof
As you can see, there are numerous environmental and financial benefits to metal roofing. You can install your new roof over your asphalt roof, saving on time, labor, and cost of installation. Because many of the roofing materials are made of recycled material, your roof can be recycled entirely if you ever choose to replace it. However, your roof may last fifty years or more with minimal maintenance.
New technology allows for easy integration of solar panels with metal roofing. In fact, you can install a variety of solar options on your metal roof, regardless of style.
