When it comes to your commercial or industrial property, there are many types of roofs to choose from. Flat roofs offer affordability and ease of maintenance, slate shingles offer style and longevity, and metal roofing offers a variety of benefits, including environmentally friendly advantages. In fact, metal roofing is among the most eco-friendly roof types out there.
Here are several reasons metal roofing can reduce your environmental impact:
- Recyclable Content- Most metal roofing consists of a large percentage of recyclable content, so it takes fewer resources to produce it. In addition, metal roofing is recyclable at the end of its lifespan. Metal can be recycled continually without losing its quality, so it has the upper hand compared to other roofing materials, which usually end up in landfills.
- Long Lifespan- Metal roofing is very strong and durable. It is impervious to water and can last upwards of 40-70 years with proper maintenance. With such a long lifespan, metal roofing doesn’t require frequent replacement, meaning it reduces waste.
- Energy Efficiency- Metal roofing is great for reflecting the sun’s rays. As it does this, the metal prevents your roof from absorbing heat. As a result, it helps to lower your building’s cooling costs significantly in the spring and summer.
