Metal Roof

Save On Your Energy Bill with a Metal Roof

Metal roofing is gaining popularity because it’s energy efficient. Here’s how much you’ll save on your energy bill with a metal roof.

The popularity of metal roofing has skyrocketed in recent years – partly due to their energy efficiency. Not to mention that these roofs can last for 40 to 70 years and are fully recyclable! Due to their durability and energy efficiency, they have significant cost-savings potential…

The Problem With Traditional Roofs

When compared to a metal roof, asphalt roofing has many downsides. One of these downsides is its extremely low reflectivity. This is what causes them to get so hot! The large amounts of heat that asphalt absorbs is then transferred to your home or building because it is installed directly onto the structure. This is then pulling money out of your wallet every time you pay your heating/cooling bill. Furthermore, an asphalt shingle roof has an estimated life expectancy of 12-20 years, compared to the 40-70 years of a metal roof – saving you money in the long run on roof replacement.

Metal Reflects Heat

Depending on the weather, it’s possible for a metal roof to save you up to 40% of your annual energy bill! This is because, in contrast to asphalt roofing, metal roofing is highly reflective. In fact, a metal roof has the highest solar reflectance of any roofing product!

Better Interior Insulation

But can a metal roof save you in the winter months? Yes! In the same way a metal roof reflects the rays of the sun on the outside, it also has the ability to reflect heat rising from the inside of your property and send it back down towards the living areas. With a traditional roof, much of this heat is often lost. This causes added strain on your heater, and a noticeably higher heating bill!
