Why Metal Roofing For Your Home
Massachusetts metal roofs are durable, corrosion-resistant, fire-retardant, and require minimal maintenance. They are environmentally beneficial, being composed of between 60 to 65% recyclable material, and are very energy efficient. A 1985 study by the Florida Solar Energy Center demonstrated that roofs made of metal absorbed 34% less heat than those roofed in asphalt shingles, and owners who switched to metal roofing reported savings of up to 20% on their energy bills. A 2001 study by the Florida Power & Light Company found that a white-painted metal roof provided dramatic energy savings as a result of its high reflectance and superior ability to cool at night.
Metal roofing is everywhere you look today, from colorful canopies and mansards in hotels and fast food franchises to distinctive panels and architectural fantasies on factories and corporate headquarters. In fact, over two billion square feet of standing seam metal roofing is installed annually, and metal industry projections show that roofing with metal will triple within the next five years.
There are a number of reasons why standing seam metal roofing is the most popular choice for residential, commercial, and industrial applications.
