Your roofing system is essential for protecting your home and keeping it insulated. Asphalt shingles are a popular roofing option for one main reason — low cost. But, this type of roofing can have drawbacks – relatively short lifespan, less energy efficient, and specific manufacturing and disposal requirements that can have a negative impact on the environment. While there are alternative asphalt shingle solutions that are better, there are other things to consider as well.
If you are looking for materials that are eco-friendlier and can provide cost savings in the long run, consider metal roofing.
Metal Roofing is Long Lasting
Metal roofs are excellent at resisting weather and damage and can last up to 50 years – making them extremely cost effective. They also reflect the sun’s rays helping to keep your home cool and lower your utility costs. In the long run, this investment pays for itself and is a great option for those wanting to go green. Another bonus of this type of roofing is low maintenance. Most metal roofs are also protected by a manufacturer’s warranty in case of factory defects which can save you money when it comes to repairs.
