26 Feb The Financial Impact of Metal Roofing: Reduced Energy Costs
Our quality metal roofing systems contribute to reduced home energy costs by keeping homes naturally cooler in hot weather and reducing summer air conditioning demand.
3 Ways a Classic Metal Roofing System Can Lead to Reduced Energy Costs
- Special coatings of reflective pigment reflect away radiant heat. All the while looking great, in rich finishes and colors that resist fading.
- Additionally, our metal shingle, metal shake, and ClickLock standing seam styles have an integral air gap between the metal and the roof deck, stopping conductive heat transfer.
- Finally, the attics beneath metal roofs can be ventilated in order to exhaust out any heat that is gained into the attic.
Typical customers who purchase metal roofs with these energy-saving attributes will report summer energy cost savings of up to 20% and even more after their roofs are installed. When homeowners look at their energy savings as a way to help pay for their metal roof investment, it becomes another part of their financial picture.

Our metal roofing systems provide a great base for rooftop solar arrays, thanks to their life expectancy and stability.
