Choosing a metal roof can save you up to 40% off energy costs. Standard Metal Sales color coating systems are ENERGY STAR® listed and many are certified by the Cool Roof Rating Council. Metal Sales products help to reduce the solar heat load on homes, thereby reducing energy expenditures for cooling.
Steel is the #1 recycled material in the world, and residential metal roofs are made from a minimum of 30% recycled steel. Asphalt shingles contain petroleum, are rarely ever recycled and are the largest contributor to landfill waste of any building material.
A metal roof will likely be the last roof you ever purchase. A quality metal roof will last for generations – at least three times longer than an asphalt shingle roof. Metal roofs offer a wide variety of profiles and unlimited colors to dramatically improve the curb appeal of any style home.
On average, a quality metal roof increases the value of a home by $1.45 per square foot, whereas because of their shorter lifespan, an asphalt shingle roof is often a liability when it’s time to sell. Metal roofs redeem up to 95% of their cost at resale.
