Then A Metal Roofing System Might Be The Perfect Solution
More and more homeowners are turning to metal roofing in Madison (and all over the Midwest) because it's the perfect solution for helping the environment and keeping their costs down. Here are three ways metal roofing systems help the environment and your wallet.
METAL ROOFING SYSTEMS REDUCE WASTE
Over 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into US landfills every year… A beautiful new metal roof can be installed right over the old asphalt one, so there’s no need to discard anything. Plus, since the roof will last forever, it will never end up in a landfill (and the materials are recyclable if it ever is discarded).
METAL ROOFING SYSTEMS ARE MADE FROM RECYCLED MATERIALS
This is a roof you can feel good about… many of our roofing options contain 95% post-consumer waste. Your roof was yesterday’s soda cans. Every ton of metal that is recycled saves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal, and 120 pounds of limestone. Metal roofing systems made from recycled materials use as little as 26% of the energy required to make asphalt roofs from raw materials. Even the reduced weight of our products significantly reduce distribution fuel costs.
METAL ROOFING SYSTEMS SAVE ENERGY
Your new residential metal roofing will make your home more energy efficient by up to 10% or more… which means less energy burned to heat and cool your home… which means you save money while saving the planet. Your home will also maintain a more constant temperature, which means you’ll also be more comfortable while you’re helping the environment!
