Recycled and recyclable
Metal roofing is made with recycled material and can be recycled upon the end of its life. The metal used to make the tiles is a more environmentally friendly material than asphalt. The roofing is manufactured using recycled steel and it can be completely recycled at the end of its life. That means that metal roofing can help keep hundreds of tonnes of used non-metal roofing material out of our landfills each year.
The fact that metal roofs are so durable means that they won’t have to be replaced nearly as often, eliminating the need for any future raw materials to be manufactured for roofing projects. They are literally the most sustainable roofing option on the market.
Save on energy consumption and costs
Metal roofing is more energy-efficient than other roofing materials, allowing homeowners to reduce their impact on the environment and lower energy costs. Property owners have reported energy savings as high as 20 percent and even more after installing a metal roof. That is because the metal reflects heat from the sun, rather than absorbing it like other materials. Not only does that cut your air conditioning costs, but it also reduces the emissions created by cooling systems.
