Metal Roofing Benefits

A metal roof is one of the best investments you can make to boost your home’s value. Delivering beauty, longevity, energy efficiency and environmental sustainability—metal roofing offers benefits for any size home in every region of the country.

Value

A Lasting Investment

While the initial cost of a quality metal roof is higher than roofing materials such as asphalt, it’s an investment that pays returns over a lifetime. A metal roof 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.

Variety

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. They’ll also maintain their great looks much longer than other roofing materials.

Durability

Tough in Any Condition

Unlike asphalt or other roofing styles, a properly constructed metal roof can handle just about anything Mother Nature can throw at it. Metal roofing can protect your home against extreme temperatures, high winds, hail, marine air and even fire—all with minimal maintenance.

Sustainability

Eco-friendly Roofing

Metal is considered the most environmentally friendly and sustainable roofing material available. Most metal roofing contains 30-60% recycled material and is 100% recyclable. Metal roofs can also often be installed over an existing roof, eliminating the environmental impact of disposal.

Efficiency

Save Energy and Money

Did you know that metal roofing can save you up to 40% on your annual energy costs? Cool-metal roofing uses a reflective solar coating designed to minimize heat buildup and reduce air conditioning cost. State and federal energy savings initiatives including an ENERGY STARⓇ tax credit may also be available.
