Be a hero this Earth Day! In celebration of Earth day, let’s explore an easy way to help the environment.
Did you know that in 2015, there was about 137.7 million tons of trash in landfills across the US? Those landfills were filled with food, plastic, paper, cardboard, rubber, textiles, and other materials. As we know, much of that trash ends up in oceans, further harming the environment. More importantly, did you know you could help the environment AND save money just by having a different type of roof on your home?
Metal Roofs are Eco-Friendly & Energy Efficient
1. Metal Roofs are 100% Recyclable
Metal Roofs are composed of up to 40% of recycled steel and other metals. Products such as recycled cars, cans, and appliances can be made into metal roofs. At the end of the roof’s life, it can be fully recycled to be turned into another useful product. Think about all the waste you are cutting down on. It’s not going into a landfill!
2. Metal Roofs have long lifespans
Unlike other types of roofs, metal roofs boast superior sustainability. Their average lifespan is 50 years, while the average lifespan on a traditional roof is 16 years. Also, Metal roofs can save you about 65% in total costs over its lifetime. Metal roofs are sustainable and a secure investment!
3. Metal Roofs are Energy Efficient
Metal roofs act as an insulator, which is beneficial in both winter and summer. In the summer, the roof acts as a sunlight reflector. This reflection coupled with the insulation helps your AC exert less electricity to maintain the cool temperature in your house, which can result in up to 40% in cooling costs.
