28 Sep Why Choose Aluminum Roofing for Your NC Home?
Here are 4 reasons why aluminum roofing is right for your North Carolina home:
1. Aluminum Roofing is Durable
Our aluminum shingles and standing seam panels are strong enough to withstand hail, severe storms, high winds, and even fire. Much of this strength comes from the material and interlocking design.
Despite its strength, aluminum’s low weight reduces structural stress, a massive boon for older homes. So not only is the roof more durable, but the structure it protects is also.
2. A McCarthy Aluminum Roof is Sustainable
Perhaps the most significant advantage of aluminum is its sustainability. A McCarthy roof is manufactured with up to 99% recycled material and is recycled at the end of a long life. The bulk of this recycled material is post-consumer. Compare this with asphalt shingles, which contribute billions of pounds to landfills yearly.
Aluminum recycling is a closed loop, so it starts as waste aluminum, is recycled into usable aluminum, and restarts the process. It’s incredibly efficient to recycle aluminum, only consuming 5% of the energy compared to making new material. Also, per aluminum.org, 75% of existing aluminum is still in use today, whether in its original application or recycled and performing a new function.
3. An Aluminum Roof Makes a Design Statement
Aluminum roofing offers flexibility in appearance. Our roofs come in a wide range of colors and finishes making it easy to find the perfect match for your home. And our high-quality Kynar™ coatings will last for decades without fading.
Beyond color, our aluminum roofs allow for various styles and shapes. Standing seam roofs are long vertical panels, and aluminum shingles mimic the shape of tile, slate, shake, or asphalt shingles. So, whether you choose a contemporary standing seam, a low-key shingle, or a bold tile, an aluminum roof makes a statement.
4. Aluminum Roofing Saves Energy
Your roofing choice will impact your future energy demands and costs. Aluminum is an energy-efficient metal. Unlike asphalt, which holds the day’s heat for hours, aluminum quickly radiates heat back into the air.
Our metal roofs address all 3 forms of heat transfer: radiant, conductive, and convective – for a roofing system with maximum energy efficiency.
