Environmental Benefits of Metal Roofing

Metal roofs are environmentally friendly. Most metal roofs contain more than 25 percent recycled materials. At the end of its long life, metal roofing is also 100 percent recyclable. Traditional roofing products, such as asphalt, contribute 13 billion pounds of waste to U.S. landfills annually. Many metal roofs can also be installed over an existing roof, without tear-off and disposal.


Metal is the perfect choice for homeowners who don't want to think about their roof. For most families, a metal roof is a one-and-done purchase that provides years of eco-friendly, energy efficient protection


Speaking of home energy efficiency


A major advantage of a standing seam metal roof is that it is solar roof ready. Meaning that it can be simply and elegantly combined and integrated with PV solar panels by means of simple metal clamps via a bracketing systems attached to the seam. This method does not require drilling any holes (potential future sources of leaks) in the roof.

Metal roofs are sophisticated too!


Today’s metal roofs have come a long way from the tin shacks of the old days. Modern metal roofs are as likely to look like cedar shakes or clay tiles or asphalt shingles as sheet metal. A metal roof won’t blow off in hurricane-force winds and is fireproof. Metal roofs will cost more to purchase and install than traditional asphalt roofs, but will still be on the job half a century from now, while two or three asphalt roofs are clogging landfills.

Perfect for the winter season

During the winter, an energy efficient metal roof, such as standing seam or metal shingles will help shed the snow off the roof, before the snow has a chance to accumulate. It can thus be an energy-smart and elegant alternative to heat cables and rakes commonly employed to deal with the ice dams on the roof.
