Are Metal Roofs Eco-Friendly?

As we move towards a more sustainable environment, it’s important to be mindful of environmental impact. One way metal roofs stand out from most other types of roofs is that they are more eco-friendly.

Metal roofs are made from 25-95% recycled material, depending on the materials used. They are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. By contrast, most shingle tear-off waste ends up in a landfill. In terms of production, there are fewer emissions released when making metal roofing.

Can Metal Roofs Trap Moisture?

Water can become trapped anywhere, on any roof, because of poor-quality installation or repair. This can eventually cause serious damage to the underlying structure. That's why it's especially important, in an area like Joplin, Missouri, that you get professional installation from experienced and skilled Metal Roof specialists from Cook Roofing Company to install your new metal roof.

Low-grade metals may also be thinner and less durable and more prone to buckling and denting. Thin metal will dent more easily during hail storms and installation. And if using architectural or R panels (exposed fastener metal roofing), the fasteners must be tightened straight, so as not to deform the neoprene washers that seal the fastener holes. Those fasteners must be replaced every so often. Cook Roofing Company can help you decide what kind of Metal Roof is right for your house in Joplin.

FAQ

Can one walk on a metal roof?
If installed by roofing experts, most metal panel systems can support your weight when walking on them. However, as with any other roofing system, you have to be careful not to cause damage to your roof due to abrasion. And if you don’t pay particular attention, you can dent the ribs in some roofs by stepping on them.
Does it cost more to buy and install a metal roof than a typical roof?
Yes. Metal roofing is considered a premium material, and thus you should expect it to cost more than an asphalt shingle roof. However, in the long-run, it becomes cheaper since it lasts for decades. In addition, your new metal roof will add your home’s resale value and help you save on your energy bills thanks to its reflective effect, which makes it less absorbent of heat.
Do metal roofs attract lightning?
This is a major concern for many homeowners who are evaluating their options in roofing materials. A metal roof does not increase the chances of your home getting stroke by lightning. In fact, if your roof is struck by lightning, a metal roof can reduce the chances of your home catching on fire as it can discharge the electrical charge. In addition to this, it is non-combustible.
