The materials and finishes used in metal roofs work to reflect heat that would otherwise be absorbed into a home, which would then need to be cooled. Not only does an energy efficient metal roof system keep your home cooler during warm summer months, it also reduces your carbon footprint which makes your home and our planet a better place to live in.
How can installing a metal roof in your home reduce your carbon footprint?
Today’s aluminum metal roofing is coated with a PVDF resin known as Kynar 500. Depending on the metal color you choose, the roof can reflect from 25 to 97% of the heat gain that would normally be absorbed into the house. Metal roofs maintain these reflective characteristics for decades. The roof is typically the least energy efficient element of the building exterior, and the use of Kynar 500 coated premium aluminum metal roofing can make a huge contribution to the energy efficiency of the total house.
A few manufacturers of aluminum roofs use recycled aluminum from industrial scrap, while others use post-consumer recycled aluminum beverage cans. Post-consumer recycled aluminum is great for the environment, saves energy and reduces your home’s carbon footprint for the next 100 years. Homeowners also enjoy superior durability, performance, a variety of colors and styles to choose from.
