Durability and Longevity: A metal roof will not decompose. And unlike asphalt and other roofing systems, a metal roof can withstand just about everything Mother Nature throws at it and can last a lifetime.
Energy Savings: As reported by the Cool Metal Roofing Coalition and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, installation of reflective metal roofing can save your building up to 40% in summer cooling energy costs while highly emissive metal roofs can reduce urban air temperatures by as much as 12 ° F. The secret to metal roofing’s energy savings is in its variety of finishes.
Insurance Savings: If your building is located in an area that experiences extreme weather such as hail, heavy wind or forest and canyon fire, you should be aware of the availability of impact-resistant UL Standard 2218 tested metal roofing (classes 1 through 4) and fire-resistant Class A, B and C metal roofing. While important for the safety and security reasons alone, these quality metal roofing products may also earn you discounts on your insurance!
