Metal Roofers Are Helping Your Home Go Green
How metal roofs are the eco friendly option for your home
Metal roofing has been all the rage lately, not only for commercial properties, but residential as well. Not all roofers are qualified for installing metal roofing though. It takes special skills and tools that only specific metal roofers, like Storm Proof Roofing Systems, have. With its durability and energy efficiency, metal roofing is considered the most eco-friendly roofing material on the market right now and metal roofers are helping homeowners go green.
Metal roofs are a recycled, lightweight material that reduces the environmental footprint, unlike asphalt shingles that end up in landfills. The lightweight benefit makes transportation costs lower and can actually help extend a home’s structural lifespan. It also means that, most of the time, metal roofing can be installed on top of existing roof materials reducing waste.
Metal roofing is also considered the most energy efficient material. Studies have shown that a metal roof can actually reduce energy costs by 20-40%. The secret to its energy efficiency is in the finishes. An asphalt roof typically absorbs and traps heat, causing you to use more energy to cool your home down. Metal roofing, however, reflects the heat, keeping your home cooler naturally.
The durability of a metal roof is worth noting when talking about its eco-friendliness. It’s very unlikely that a metal roof will need replacement or repairs often when installed by professional metal roofers. They are also fire resistant, protecting your home and the environment from toxic fires.
Going green is all the rage right now, and is a trend that won’t die off any time soon. Our professional metal roofers at Storm Proof Roofing Systems will help you save on energy costs, future roof repairs and overall help your home be more eco-friendly.
