Metal roofing is a great option for “greening up” your home. Metal roofs reflect heat from the sun – keeping your home cooler when it’s hot – like right now. During the winter, a metal roof sheds snow and ice. The build up of snow and ice could be dangerous on a normal roof, but with a metal roof, this is just one less thing to worry about.
Additionally, a metal roof can generally be installed over the existing asphalt shingle roof, so you won’t be adding to the landfills.
Metal roofing is considered a green roofing material, which means it contains a significant portion of recycled metal materials.
