Thought the upfront cost of a metal roofing system is more than a typical asphalt roof, you can rest assured knowing that your metal roof will last 50 years or even longer, unlike asphalt which will need replacing every 10 to 15 years. Metal roofing systems are resistant to decay, discolouration and mildew making them the most durable and reliable roofing system on the market. Imagine never having to replace your roof again! That saves you both time and money over the long run.
A metal roof is also very energy efficient and will help you save on both your heating and cooling costs. They’re also non-combustible and require almost zero maintenance.
Environmental Benefits of a Metal Roof
A metal roof is made of 100 percent recyclable materials. The metal used to make the tiles is a more environmentally friendly material that asphalt. The roofing is manufactured using recycled steel and it can be completely recycled at the end of it’s life. That means that metal roofing can help keep hundreds of tonnes of used non-metal roofing material out of our landfills each year.
The fact that metal roofs are so durable mean that they won’t have to be replaced nearly as often, eliminating the need for any future raw materials to be manufactured for roofing projects. They are literally the most sustainable roofing option on the market.
Metal roofing is more energy efficient that other roofing materials, allowing homeowners to reduce their impact on the environment and lower energy costs. According to a study published by the Metal Construction Association, property owners have reported energy savings as high as 20 percent and even more after installing a metal roof. That is because the metal reflects heat from the sun, rather than absorbing it like other materials. Not only does that cut your air conditioning costs, it also reduces the emissions created by cooling systems.
