Standing Seam Metal Roof Benefits
Standing seam metal roofs stand out for their beauty, durability and longevity but did you know they are also Energy Star Rated and qualify for up to a $500 tax credit! Here are some great reasons to install a standing seam metal roof!
According to energystar.gov, ENERGY STAR qualified metal roof products reflect more of the sun's rays. This can lower roof surface temperature by up to 100F!
In addition to reflecting sunlight, standing seam metal roofs can be easily insulated with a radiant barrier effect, using fiberglass and foam block to reduce energy costs and noise.
Residential metal roofs look great on contemporary, historic and even traditional homes and are available in over 35 different colors! Whether your looking for your whole house or just a home accent, standing seam will add curb appeal and value to your home.
Safety and Wind Resistance
Metal roofing is non-combustible, providing fire, impact resistance and high ratings from the Underwriters Laboratory (UL). It also has the highest wind rating among all roofs and is warrantied against category 3 hurricane speed winds.
Low Maintenance and Color Preservation
Metal roofs are long lasting and resist decay, discoloration and mildew, for a maintenance-free home roofing solution. The average shingle roof is only warrantied against discoloration at 100% for the first year whereas metal roofing guarantees against color fading 100% for the first 35 years!
Made of 20-30% recycled material and is fully recyclable at the end of its very long lifespan. Did you know 1.3 billion pounds of shingles end up in landfills… YEARLY!
