By installing a new metal roof, you can cut energy costs, help the environment, and protect your biggest investment – your home. Energy Star-labeled metal roofs keep homes cooler in summer, resulting in lower utility costs.

As more people are choosing to stay in their homes longer, the need to re-roof looms large. Consumers have figured out that temporary doesn’t make sense. That’s why we call metal roofing investment-grade roofing, because it adds value and it lasts.

A typical asphalt shingle roof has to be replaced approximately every 10-15 years, making it a short-term solution with a long-term environmental impact. According to the National Association of Homebuilders, asphalt shingles contribute 1.36 billion pounds of waste to landfills every year.

A metal roof features significant recycled content. Metal roofs often outlast the home they’re on, require no maintenance and are 100% recyclable at the end of their useful life. As an added bonus for re-roofing projects, metal roofing can often be applied over the original roof, saving removal and disposal costs and reducing landfill waste.

Metal roofing offers a wide variety of finishes, designs and colors that provide greater energy savings compared to most other non-metal roofing products on the market today. Metal roofs resist cracking, shrinking and eroding and stand up to hail, high winds and wildfires.
