Metal Roofs come in all shapes, sizes and materials. There are many considerations for weight, cost, and durability that must be carefully reviewed.
Metal roofs have continued to gain popularity because they are fire proof, mildew proof, waterproof, and hold up against the wind.
One main benefit of unpainted metal roofs is that they reflect most of the sun’s radiation, drastically lowering heating costs during the summer. It is estimated that metal roofing can shave around 40% off your home’s summer cooling costs, lowering the ambient temperature an average of 12 degrees compared to an asphalt shingle roof.
the US government has established an Energy Policy Act of 2005 that rewards homeowners who have opted for the installation of a metal roof.
