Tough in Any Condition
Unlike other roofing styles, a properly constructed metal roof can protect your home against extreme temperatures and will likely outlast the solar panels themselves. Plus, metal offers additional energy benefits by reflecting more solar radiation than asphalt to keep your home cool while saving even more on energy.
California's New Residential Solar Requirements
As the first state to require all new homes to have solar power, California’s new mandate should drive up demand for metal roofing. Investing in a metal roof will maximize energy savings and decrease monthly heating, cooling and lighting bill unlike asphalt roofs which absorb and hold heat.
A Lasting Investment
Just like solar panels, the initial cost of a quality metal roof is higher but it’s an investment that pays returns over a lifetime. A metal roof is considered a "cool roof" which can last 30 to 50+ years or more with little maintenance, can often be repainted versus replaced, and may even increase the resale value of your home.
A Style for Every Home
Residential metal roofs are available in a wide variety of styles, types and colors. They can make a bold architectural statement or effortlessly complement any home and neighborhood. Plus, all the options are durable enough to support the weight of heavy solar systems while still reducing the possibility of roofing failures and leaks.
