A few things to know about eco-friendly metal roofs:

  1. Modern metal roofs have rust-proof coatings and are available in a wide range of styles to fit any neighborhood.  Many resemble traditional roofing materials such as tile or shake with the added benefit of sustainability.
  2. Steel products can be recycled repeatedly without loss of strength. When you buy steel, you’re always buying recycled.
  3. For homeowners looking to be aggressive with green living initiatives, metal roofs serve as an excellent platform for photovoltaic systems, solar panels, or harvesting rainwater for reuse/irrigation.
  4. A metal roof has the ability to reduce both cooling and heating energy use, saving homeowners up to 25% in utility bills.
  5. Metal roofs are significantly lighter than other roofing products. A metal roof can often be installed directly over asphalt shingles, reducing landfill waste.
