By installing a new metal roof, you can cut energy costs, help the environment, and protect your biggest investment – your home. Energy Star-labeled metal roofs keep homes cooler in summer and warmer in winter, resulting in lower utility costs.
As more people are choosing to stay in their homes longer, the need to re-roof looms large. Consumers have figured out that temporary doesn’t make sense. That’s why we call metal roofing investment-grade roofing, because it adds value and it lasts.
A typical asphalt shingle roof has to be replaced approximately every 10-15 years, making it a short-term solution with a long-term environmental impact. According to the National Association of Homebuilders, asphalt shingles contribute 1.36 billion pounds of waste to landfills every year.
A metal roof features significant recycled content. Metal roofs often outlast the home they’re on, require no maintenance and are 100% recyclable at the end of their useful life. As an added bonus for re-roofing projects, metal roofing can often be applied over the original roof, saving removal and disposal costs and reducing landfill waste.
Metal roofing offers a wide variety of finishes, designs and colors that provide greater energy savings compared to most other non-metal roofing products on the market today. Metal roofs resist cracking, shrinking and eroding and stand up to hail, high winds and wildfires.
