Being Green with Metal Roofing

There are several roofing systems which you can adopt for your Bryan, TX home, but none works better than metal roofing. This is due to the many benefits associated with this form of roofing. Some of these benefits are:

Long-Lasting and Sustainable

Metal roofing has the ability to survive for longer period of time even in extreme weather conditions compared to other forms of roofing hence they lead to reduced consumption of raw materials. It can stand all forms of weather patterns whether cold or hot and will keep on holding strong even in times of snow, hails, ice and even strong winds. This can be proved by the fact that those roofs which were installed in 1800’s are still strong up to date. Commercial metal roofing has been practiced since 1910. With the modern engineering technology today, quality metal roofing materials are available in the market which can be warranted for a period of up to 50 years. You can confirm with your Bryan roofer on the type of metal roofing which enjoys the longest warranty.

Utilizes Recycled Materials

Before installing metal roof systems in their homes, customers are allowed to choose the amount of recycled content they want to include in their metal roofs which further reduces the demand on raw materials. Once you are ready to install them, your Bryan roofing contractor should provide you with these options which range from 25-95% recycled content. Due to its high content of recycled material and longevity, metal roofing has won a lot of favors from solid waste management companies, local municipalities and state government. Apart from utilization or recycled material, metal roofing is itself 100% recyclable also. Instead of disposing your old metal roofing, you can have it recycled to produce a new metal roof.

Reduced Weight

Metal roofing may seem heavy but the truth is its weight is usually 1/8 to 1/3 less when compared to conventional shingled roofing and even much less than that of tile roofing. The advantage of having light weight roofing materials is that they exert less structural stress on a building, they can lead to minimal injuries in case the roof collapses and can be mounted over an existing roof cutting down the expenses of removing the old roof. It also helps to free up some space in landfills where large greater weights of composition shingles are disposed each year.

High Energy Efficiency

The fact that metal roofing has high energy efficiency makes it number one choice for many home owners. Reports have shown that metal roofing has helped many home owners save up to 20% on cooling costs. Studies have been conducted by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Florida Power and Light and Florida Solar Energy Center to confirm metal roofing’s energy efficiency and reflectivity. Pre-painted metal roofing has been found to reflect up to 75% and has a high thermal emittance of up to 80%. From these findings, it can be concluded that apart from reflecting more sun energy, metal roofing dissipates the stored heat energy faster when compared to traditional roofing. This is usually witnessed in areas with high sunlight intensity like Texas.

Apart from the saving you make each year due to their energy efficiency, your home will look beautiful and appealing with metal roofing system.
