Why metal roofs are so environmentally friendly

Metal roofs come with a variety of benefits – but one of the best ones is the fact that it’s a very environmentally friendly option for homeowners. Whether it’s a priority on your list or not – the sustainability of metal roofs are good for the environment and can help save you a bundle of cash.

Here are some of the ways metal roofs help the environment and save you money. Let’s jump right in.

Energy efficiency 

Metal roofs look great, but most importantly, they can save you a ton on your energy bills. Metal roofs have a high-quality finish that helps keep temperatures inside your home stable – whether you need it warm in the winter or cold in the summer. Not only will it keep your home’s temperature consistent year-round. But it also does a great job of not fading and chalking, meaning it will sustain those results for a longer period of time.

They’re both recycled and recyclable

Depending on the model you buy, metal roofs are made up of 25-95% recycled materials. That greatly reduces the amount of waste that ends up at a dump. Even better – when your roof has outlived it’s lifespan, it can be melted down and repurposed all over again – making metal roofs the most eco-friendly option on the market.

Long lasting

Ask public administrators what is near or at the top of their list of concerns that isn’t discussed a lot in public and it’s the overfilling of landfills. And unfortunately, asphalt roofs and other roofing materials are contributing to that problem.

Metal roofs on the other hand, last up to 60 years. That means less waste, that they get recycled and save you money. How do they save you money? Because you usually only need to install one in your lifetime. Yes – you will pay more up front, but you won’t have to worry about paying for 3 asphalt roofs. Which again – is a cost savings.

Additionally, they don’t require the repairs that regular asphalt roofs do, meaning that you’ll not only save money on installation and monthly bills, but in repair and maintenance costs as well.

The reasons above are just a few of the reasons that so many home owners are investing in metal roofs. If you have any questions or you need metal roof clips and components for your roof, give us a call today.
