A metal roof is the most environmentally friendly solution for your home. Here's why:

  • Metal roofing has a minimal carbon footprint and can last up to two to three times as long as other roofing materials.
  • Metal roofing is naturally more energy efficient and can save homeowners up to 40% per cent on their yearly energy costs.
  • A metal looks great and will last for around 50 years.
  • New metal roofs contain recycled metal from anywhere between 25%-95%.
  • The metal can also be recycled again at the end of its life.
  • A light-coloured metal roof can also reduce energy expenditure and make your home up to 10 degrees cooler than a dark-coloured roof.
  • Metal roof materials rarely become waste in a landfill.
