New Jersey’s #1 Metal Roofing Installer
Go Green with Metal Roofing
Since the inception of Metal Roofing NJ and Global home Improvement, we have ran a GREEN IS GLOBAL campaign to help spread awareness and benefits of green and eco-friendly home products such as fiberglass windows and metal roofs. More specifically, standing seam metal roofing and integrated solar panels. The significance of the name is broken down into multiple meanings. On one end, we are Global Home Improvement, a top 500 Home Remodeler, dedicated to installing products that are both green and energy efficient, such as 50-year metal roofs and photo-voltaic laminates. On the other end, although we are not a “global reaching” company, we are most certainly a “Global Thinking” company. The concept of truly being green and sustaining the beautiful world we live in, starts on an individual basis.
Specifically, the decision to focus on Standing Seam Metal roofing is an easy one based on the following two staggering statistics:
- The EPA reports that $40 billion is spent annually in the United States to cool buildings. This accounts for one-sixth of all electricity generated in a year.
- Traditional roofing products, such as asphalt, contribute 13 billion pounds of waste to U.S. landfills annually.
Not only is metal roofing Energy Star certified as a cool roofing product, it is also 100% recyclable! If everyone chose metal, there would be a significant reduction in heat island effects, around heavily populated areas, as well as a huge decrease in landfill waste!!
