Eco-Friendly Roofing in Webster NY
There is one home purchase that can do more for the environment and a household budget than any other single investment
– install an energy-efficient, sustainable metal roof!
Here are five reasons why:
Metal roofs reduce energy costs from day one (up to 25% lower utility bills).
Metal roofs can be installed over your existing roof, eliminating the need for a tear-off and reducing waste in landfills.
Unlike asphalt shingles, which are petroleum-based, metal roofs are 100% recyclable, and provide lasting protection that increases the value of your home.
Metal roofs are made with recycled materials, and provide a market for recycled steel.
Metal is an investment-grade roofing product. In fact, homeowners who install a metal roof will never have to buy another roof!
Today’s residential metal roofs are far different than those you may see on barns and commercial buildings. In fact, they are high-tech wonders that feature highly reflective coatings that provide year-round relief from high energy costs. Metal also offers a variety of styles, including tiles, shakes and shingles that blend in with the neighborhood.
Energy Efficiency – Eco-Friendly Roofing Reduces Energy Costs
Tests conducted by the independent Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL) indicate that a metal roof can save a homeowner up to 25% in cooling costs compared to a dark-gray asphalt shingle. In areas with cold winters, above-sheathing ventilation is the key to achieving year-round benefits. ORNL’s field tests have shown that the combination of venting and increased reflectance can reduce the heat penetrating the roof deck by about 45 percent for stone-coated metal roofs compared to an asphalt shingle roof in certain climates.
Increasing Demand for Metal Roofs
Eco-friendly products, including metal roofs, are rapidly replacing petroleum-based asphalt shingles. The McGraw-Hill Construction and Analytics® survey showed metal roofing now comprises 11% of the residential re-roofing market, more than doubling in just ten years. Demand for metal roofing is expected to increase to 1.4 million squares for new construction in 2009 and 13.4 million squares for repair and remodeling.
Metal Roofs create a Market for Recycled Steel
An old car, dishwasher or refrigerator can be recycled to re-roof a home. All steel roofs contain a minimum of 25% recycled content, and many have a much higher percentage. At the end of its useful life, metal roofing is 100 percent recyclable — other roofing materials are routinely removed and disposed of by the ton in landfills.
“Green” (and Brown, Blue, Black, Gray, Red or White) Metal Roofs
A metal roof is available in a wide range of colors and styles. Recognizing the roof as the largest design element of their home, consumers have chosen to make a statement with a unique metal roof.
In areas where roofing styles are mandated, homeowners can choose a long-lasting metal roof that has the same appearance as less eco-friendly choices, without the guilt.
