Environmental Roofing: The Impact on Metal Roofing
Homeowners are becoming more aware of environmental roofing, and how their decisions can impact the future. When choosing a home there are many areas that should be inspected and repaired if needed.
The Roof is one of the main focal points on most homes and the most important aspect of your home since it is what covers your loved ones and possessions. Homeowners do not want to continue spending money over the years on the same repair or issue which is why more consumers are choosing metal over asphalt.
Some Green Benefits include;
- Recycled Content: Metal roofing has 95% recycled content and Steel roofing has 35%.
- Low Carbon Footprint
- Reduce Energy: Energy costs reduced by 20% or more with the unique coatings and design of the roof, keeping hot air from entering the attic
- Low weight: longer structural life of your home
- Long lasting Fade and Chalk resistant: can be repainted in 50+ years rather than replaced
Asphalt and Fiberglass roofs have certainly come a long way with being green, however, if you are looking for a long lasting, sturdy, most environmentally friendly roof right now, we suggest Metal.
