5 Ways Metal Roofs are Environmentally Friendly

Many homebuyers and homeowners are emphasizing environmentally sustainable living in their house purchases and other home enhancements as a result of consumers’ increased awareness about the need for long-term living. Metal roofing is proving to be a popular choice in the home improvement and construction industries, as they try to respond to consumer demand for conservation, recyclability, and sustainability. Metal roofs are attracting increasing interest among even the most cynical home purchasers and homeowners. Metal is an environmentally-friendly roofing solution for unmatched energy-saving features, recyclability, and longevity characteristics.

Environmentally-Friendly Features
Metal is the most environmentally friendly and long-lasting roofing material available. Because they last for decades, require minimal maintenance and don’t often require the tear-off of an existing asphalt roof…they eliminate the environmental impact of the disposal of a petroleum laden product. Additionally, a composite roofing system that is made of metal reduces the weight of a home by half, allowing for more environmentally friendly new construction.

Energy-Savings
Metal roofs save energy by keeping the house cooler in the summer by reflecting most of the sun’s heat and radiation, thus reducing your electricity bill. Additionally, installing a metal roof reduces the chance of having an ice dam during the Winter months that results in a leak.

Recyclability
Metal is one of the most recycled materials on earth, making them the preferred choice of many “green” enthusiasts and a smart choice for any home. Surprisingly, more metal is recycled every year than plastic bottles!

Metal roofing panels are a fantastic roofing solution that will last you for years, which means they consume fewer resources. Even when a metal roof reaches the end of its lifespan…the metal can be recycled rather than being disposed of in a landfill.

In contrast, asphalt roof shingles are made using petroleum and must be replaced every 12-20 years depending on the slope of the roof. A shocking fact is that every year, approximately 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are deposited in landfills in the United States.

Longevity
Metal roofing can last for several decades, whereas asphalt shingle roofs need to be replaced far more often. This means that less material has to be used and subsequently disposed of over the lifetime of the roof, making it more environmentally friendly than other types of materials.

In Closing
Metal roofs are both a practical AND environmentally friendly option when choosing a material for a replacement roof. They last for decades and require minimal maintenance once installed by a professional contractor. This saves time and money for homeowners in the long term and makes metal roofs a more practical choice for environmentally conscious consumers. So, if you want to go green with your roofing material of choice, consider all the benefits that come from choosing a metal roof as your next home improvement project!
