Superior Durability: Metal roofing is a proven product, more durable than most available roofing systems. Metal roofs simply last longer and are often the roofing choice for many governments, schools, and industrial buildings.
Excellent Performance: Metal roofs rate high in wind, fire, and hail resistance.
Energy Efficient: In predominantly warm climates, the high solar reflectance and high infrared emittance roof drop the building’s air conditioning load and reduce peak energy demands on the utility.
Environmentally Friendly: According to the National Association of Homebuilders Research Center, 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into US landfills every year. The recycled content of the steel in a metal roof is far superior to asphalt. Metal roofs also have a low per unit area weight, making it possible in most cases to install directly over existing roofs, saving removal and disposal costs.
As your roof gets exposed to rain, ice, and sunlight over time, it starts to shrink and get brittle. The granules begin to come off the surface, which makes the surface even darker, and the fibers in the felt start to deteriorate as they are exposed.
A sustainable roof coating can save you money while helping the environment. A statement made by Secretary of Energy Steven Chu encouraged painting roofs white as an effective tool in reducing energy use from air conditioning.
