Metal Roofing Energy Efficiency
According to the EPA and ENERGY STAR, “about $40 billion is spent annually in the United States to air condition buildings — one-sixth of all electricity generated in a year! ENERGY STAR qualified roof products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce energy bills by up to 50 percent.” Which brings us to Standing Seam Metal Roofs.

The great thing about Standing Seam Metal Roofing is all 35 colors meet the ENERGY STAR requirements for energy efficient roofing in the state of New Jersey. Metal roofing uses infrared reflecting paint pigments to reflect the sun’s rays, keeping your roof’s surface temperature and attic space significantly cooler during the hot summer months.

Reflecting heat is an important job because normal insulation only protects against convection and conduction heat but not against radiation heat generated by the sun. “Cool” metal roofing not only looks stylish and modern but significantly reduces your energy consumption and, more importantly, makes your home more enjoyable to live in.
Did you ever notice that your second or even third floor is much hotter than your first, even after the sun sets? That’s because your asphalt roof absorbs and traps heat making it uncomfortable to sleep for many homeowners. Not only are our metal roofs reflective but they are also emissive which means it has the ability to release stored heat making your days and nights much more comfortable.
