Metal roofing is gaining popularity with both homeowners and home exterior remodeling companies. You can attribute this popularity surge to the benefits it offers to the environment. Metal roofs are an environment-friendly roofing solution that boast superior energy-saving features, unmatched longevity and high recyclability. Triangle Home Exteriors discusses them further.
Metal roofs have high solar reflectivity and emissivity levels. This makes them energy-efficient, and are able to save you up to 40 percent in energy expenses. In fact, pre-painted metal can keep almost 95 percent of its reflectivity. Dark colors can absorb a lot more solar radiation than light ones. A white or light-colored metal roof will reduce energy spending by 20 percent. It will also make your home 50 to 60 degrees cooler than a conventional dark-colored roof.
Metal roofs beat other roofing materials in longevity and durability. They have a much longer service life than all other roofing materials. They can last up to 60 years and beyond.
Metal roofs are also malleable and can be shaped without suffering any breaks or cracks. With their minimal upkeep, you can save money with fewer repairs and roof replacement procedures.
The recyclability of metal roofs makes them a favorite of many “green” enthusiasts. They are one of the most environment-friendly roofings from a waste-reduction standpoint. Most call metal roofing the “green” solution. The content of metal roofs in itself is 100 percent recyclable. As a result, metal roof materials rarely become waste in a landfill. In comparison, 11 million tons of asphalt shingles end up in landfills.
