Even though metal roofing comes in many shapes, substrates, and colors, they all have something in common: energy savings. Thanks to increased industry recycling efforts, metal roofing has earned a reputation as one of the most sustainable roofing materials. Many manufacturers include recycled materials in their new metal roofing products.
While a metal roof costs more than an asphalt roof, the energy savings and long lifespan of metal shingles make it an excellent investment. A metal roof can last 50 years or more with little maintenance can often be repainted rather than replaced, and may even increase the resale value of your home. Lighter colors and vented metal roofing can save you up to 25% in energy outlay.
Another benefit of metal roofing is that it can be made to look exactly like asphalt shingles, cedar shakes, clay tile or slate roofing, but will be stronger and last longer.
These are the most common types of metal roofing on the market:
- Aluminum roofs
- Copper roofing
- Corrugated metal
- Metal tile
- Metal slate
- Standing seam metal
