Benefits of Metal Roofing

There’s a reason metal roofs are gaining in popularity across the country. In fact, there are lots of reasons. Metal roofs offer energy savings, aesthetic appeal and protection for your home that can last a lifetime. They complement virtually any architectural style and are environmentally sustainable. Explore the many benefits that metal roofs have to offer.

A Lasting Investment

While the initial cost of a quality metal roof is higher than roofing materials such as asphalt, it’s an investment that pays returns over a lifetime. A metal roof can last up to 50+ years or more with little maintenance, can often be repainted versus replaced, and may even increase the resale value of your home.LEARN MORE

A Style for Every Home

Residential metal roofs are available in a wide variety of styles, types and colors. They can make a bold architectural statement or effortlessly complement any home and neighborhood. They’ll also maintain their great looks much longer than other roofing materials.

Tough in Any Condition

Unlike asphalt or other roofing styles, a properly constructed metal roof can handle just about anything Mother Nature can throw at it. Metal roofing can protect your home against extreme temperatures, high winds, hail, marine air and even fire—all with minimal maintenance.LEARN MORE

Eco-friendly Roofing

Metal is considered the most environmentally friendly and sustainable roofing material available. Metal roofs are virtually 100% recyclable, and are made with a minimum of 25% recycled material, depending on the specific metal. Landfill issues are eliminated with metal roofing materials, and scrap value of used material is a positive attribute.

Save Energy and Money

What is known in the metal roofing industry as “cool metal roofing” can significantly reduce a building’s long-term energy use. Through the application of heat deflecting metal coatings, energy costs can be reduced up to 40% or more, according to a study conducted by Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
