I have a newly installed standing seam metalroof. I'm in the Dallas area. I was recently told that with our summer heat that this roof is not energy efficient in this location. Is this true? I have a painted dark grey color metal.
Amy, metal roofs are frequently used in areas like Dallas for their energy efficiency. The fact that they dissipate any gained heat quickly back to the sky when the sun goes behind a cloud or a breeze blows is a real plus. However, beyond that, many metal roofs have reflective pigments in their coatings for energy efficiency. Others may also be installed with an integral thermal break for energy efficiency. Good attic ventilation is always a big help.
