Metal roofing is one of our specialties. Standing seam metal roofs are not only attractive, durable and lightweight, but they also lower your home energy bill. If you are looking for a Class IV impact rated Green Roof, don’t hesitate to call us. You can get 15-33% savings on your homeowners insurance by installing a metal roof.
As reported by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, installation of reflective metal roofing can save your home up to 40% in summer cooling energy costs while highly emissive metal roofs can reduce urban air temperatures by as much as 12 ° F. This is known as “mitigating the urban heat effect”.
The secret to metal roofing's energy savings is in its variety of finishes. Basic, unpainted metal roof will reflect much of the solar radiation usually absorbed in your attic and home by an asphalt roof. But, for homes in warmer climates, pre-painted or granular coated metal roofing systems not only reflect solar energy but also cool your home by re-emitting most of what solar radiation is absorbed.
Additionally, most metal roofing, including standing seam, is composed of at least 25% recycled material and is 100% recyclable reducing landfill waste and maintenance-free strength and beauty.
