If you're looking for a roof that stands the test of time, provides superior insulation, and looks striking, a metal roof may be the roof for you. While metal roofs are more expensive than traditional asphalt roofs, over time the initial investment will pay off tremendously.
- Durability: Metal roofs last between 40 to 70 years. Asphalt roofs, in comparison, last only 10-20 years. Metal roofs also withstand hail and wind damage with little or no maintenance, often qualifying for a discount of up to 35% on homeowners insurance.
- Efficiency: Metal roofs reflect solar heat, so they can literally slash energy costs by nearly 40% in summer months, and actually reduce city air temperatures by almost 12°. In fact, Broadback's metal roofs come with the Energy Star label, meaning that they lower roof surface temperature by up to 100°F, decreasing the amount of heat transferred into a building's interior. ENERGY STAR qualified roof products save money and energy by reducing the amount of air conditioning needed to keep a building comfortable. In addition, they provide excellent insulation in cold weather.
- Environmentally friendly: Metal roofs are made from 95% recycled material, reducing the carbon footprint associated with traditional shingles. Because metal roofs are lightweight, they can be installed directly over most existing roofs, eliminating the need for landfill disposal of old roofing. If metal roofs ever need to be replaced, they are 100% recyclable.
- Style: If you think metal roofs aren't attractive..think again. Available in a wide variety of materials, colors, and designs, metal roofs offer unique or traditional styles. With many styles, including the look of shingles, clay, wood shakes, slate, standard metal, or barrel tiles, and a wide variety of colors; metal roofs are the most versatile roofing option.
