If you are wondering what roofing material to use on an upcoming build or remodel and weighing environmentally sound options, metal will be a clear and obvious front-runner.
Great for Your HOME, Great for the ENVIRONMENT
According to the National Association of Homebuilders Research Center, 20 Billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into U.S. landfills every year. If you were to load those in 40,000 pound trailers and line them up end-to-end, they would make a line from New York City to Los Angeles, back to New York City, and then to Chicago!
The recycled content of the steel in a metal roof is about 56% from production > installation > reuse – light years better than asphault!
Metal roofs also provide excellent insulation. Your metal roof will keep your house comfortable regardless of the weather outside, and it can actually lower your heat and AC bills.
