Q. You’ve written a bit about installing a metal roof. Can you explain the benefits?
A. There are many benefits of owning a metal roof. Here are just a few to consider:
Metal roofing is on the leading edge of technology with a wide variety of finishes, designs and colors that provide greater energy savings compared to most other non-metal roofing products on the market today.
Metal roofing is sustainable. It contains significant recycled content. It lasts much longer than most non-metal roofing products. It is 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life.
Low Life-Cycle Costs and Durable
Metal roofing has been proven to be more durable than most other roofing systems available. As a result, metal roofing has low life-cycle costs making it the choice of many school, government, commercial, industrial and institutional building owners.
Fire and Wind Resistant
Metal roofing is extremely fire resistant and can be designed to withstand strong winds.
Due to its light weight per unit area, structural savings can be realized in a building when compared to using heavier non-metal roofing alternatives. For re-roofing projects, metal roofing can often be applied over the original roof, saving removal and disposal costs.
Also most metal roofs are safe for the collection of rainwater!
