The Advantages of Metal Roofing

Standing seam metal roofs have long been popular for their aesthetics and long-term performance characteristics, particularly their strength, durability and low maintenance costs.

Now with the concept of sustainability so important to the building community, metal roofs are being seen in a new light. Their high recycled content, total recyclablity and energy efficiency allow "cool metal roofs" to play a pivotal role in meeting Energy Star and LEED requirements.

Metal is elegant--there's real beauty and character in a standing seam roof. It articulates a classic way of thinking about design, from the principles used to tailor it, to the manner in which it is used, to the other building products and systems it embraces.

Standing seam metal roofs are synonymous with strength and durability and are known to have a service life of 50 years and more. Consequently, the life cycle costs are substantially lower than conventional roofing materials, making a metal roof an extremely cost effective roofing solution.

Metal roofing offers many energy saving advantages and metal roofs look great.

Today's metal roofs offer the following advantages:

  • Metal roofs are lightweight--less than 1/3 the weight of asphalt and one twentieth the weight of concrete.
  • A metal roof won't rot, crack, crumble, split, break or burn.
  • Metal roofs are made from recycled steel and aluminum material and are 100 % recyclable.
  • Metal roofs have coatings that prevent 75 to 80 percent of the sun's energy from being absorbed into the roof.
  • A metal roof can reduce roof surface temperatures by 60 to 70 degrees.
  • Metal roofs are available in a wide variety of styles and custom colors.
  • Metal Roofing is durable and maintenance free.
  • A Metal Roof increases a building's value.
  • Metal Roofing is an ideal platform for integrating solar electric and solar thermal renewable energy solutions.
  • A Metal Roof can earn up to 25 U.S. Green Building Council LEED credits
