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 up 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. Metal roofs are virtually 100% recyclable, and are made with a minimum of 25% recycled material, depending on the specific metal. Landfill issues are eliminated with metal roofing materials, and scrap value of used material is a positive attribute.

Efficiency

Save Energy and Money

What is known in the metal roofing industry as "cool metal roofing" can significantly reduce a building's long-term energy use. Through the application of heat deflecting metal coatings, energy costs can be reduced up to 40% or more, according to a study conducted by Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
