Metal roofs show their superiority in every area, with copper roofs topping the list in traits like longevity.
Suppose you’ve been considering upgrading your home and increasing its resale value. In that case, you should know that an attractive and enduring metal roofing system is highly valued as one of the top renovation-friendly building materials for rehabbers and new home builders alike.

More homeowners seek energy-saving building materials for their renovations and new homes.

Among the array of possible upgrades, a metal roofing system easily answers this consumer demand offering:
As reported by the Cool Metal Roof Coalition and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, installation of reflective metal roofing can save your home up to 40% in summer cooling energy costs while highly metal roofs can reduce urban air temperatures by as much as 12 ° F. Combined, these benefits mean less money out of your wallet, less dependence on energy resources and less general air pollution in your neighborhood and across the nation.
The secret to metal roofs’ energy savings is in its variety of finishes. An elemental, unpainted metal roof will reflect much of the solar radiation usually absorbed in your attic and home by an asphalt roof. But, for homes in warmer climates, pre-painted or granular coated metal roofing systems not only reflect solar energy but also cool your home by re-emitting most of what solar radiation is absorbed.
Where annual cooling loads dominate, a highly reflective and highly emissive painted or granular-coated metal roof is optimal for reducing energy consumption and can re-emit up to 90% of absorbed solar radiation.
Additionally, most metal roofs, including standing seams, are composed of recycled material and can be installed directly onto an existing asphalt roof, reducing landfill waste and promoting quick installation as well as decades of environmentally-sound, maintenance-free strength and beauty.
