What’s the Environmental impact?

The fact is that over 11 million tons of composition asphalt shingles end up in landfills each year, while low carbon steels used for construction applications have an iron content of approximately 98%. Iron is by mass the most abundant element on our planet and the fourth most common element in the Earth's crust. Steel is also the most recycled material. Approximately 80 million tons of steel are available annually to be recycled into new steel products in North America without degradation of properties.

Will they make my home hotter?

Unlike other roofing products that typically hold heat that radiates into the home, metal roofs (dependent on reflective rating) can actually reflect heat away from the home helping to keep your home cooler during warmer weather.

Do metal roofs attract lightning?

Our steel panels do not attract lightning, this does not mean they cannot be struck by lightning. A metal roof will typically help to conduct and dissipate electrical charges.

How long will it last?

Metal roofs are typically considered to be a permanent roofing solution. You can expect your metal roof to last 2-3 times as long as a composition or shingle roof.

How much am I going to spend?

Metal roofs typically have a higher cost than composition (shingle) roofing products. While the initial cost may be higher the benefits far outweigh the cost. Our panels are Class 4 UL certified which means savings on your home owners insurance. Our metal roofing systems typically have life spans doubling and in some cases tripling the lifespans of typical composition shingles.
