DISCOVER THE TRUTH ABOUT
The Advantages of Metal Roofing
Whether it was a TV ad, a radio commercial, a banner in your favorite home improvement store, or neighbors or friends, there’s been a lot of talk these days about metal roofing and siding. Ever wonder why? The truth is that metal roofing and siding has taken the industry by storm, and there are several good reasons as to why:
- Durability. It’s not uncommon to see metal roofs that can stand up to wind gusts 140 miles per hour, won’t corrode or crack, all while boasting a beautiful finish and look for your home. In addition, metal roofs don't need the periodic costly maintenance that other roofing materials often require.
- Longevity. Metal roofing and siding can last for well over 40 years, depending on the thickness and coatings used in the materials. Traditional asphalt roofing materials have an estimated life expectancy of just 12-20 years.
- Energy efficiency. Metal roofs reflect solar heat, which can reduce cooling costs by up to 25%.
- Environmentally friendly. Metal roofs have between 25-95% recycled content and are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. Compare that to the shingle tear-off waste that ends up in landfills — up to 20 billion pounds per year.
